First time hearing a Canadian station on the lower VHF!

I heard an amateur VE1PYE calling on 52.525 earlier this evening from a suburb of Halifax NS! Simplex!

I managed a few two-way contacts with Europe on the six meter amateur band on May 19th using the FT8 digital mode. (Seven years on six meters and these are my first ever EU contacts). The times are UTC.

2021-05-19-21:08:00 G4RRA 50.314 Mhz FT8 (England)
2021-05-19-21:09:15 EI3KD 50.313 Mhz FT8 (Ireland)
2021-05-19-21:12:45 EA2XR, 50.314 Mhz FT8 (Spain)

Sporadic E's have been so good lately I'm going to start general coverage listening on low band VHF...

It's cool you finally got a hit on Fort Hood! I always figured you were a little too far from it to pick it up direct and at the same time too close for skip. Maybe it was tropo or aircraft scatter!
