6-Meters
The following is an audio clip from a Ham in Europe while in I was operating from Bermuda on 6-meters.

While operating in Bermuda I experienced a great E Skip opening to Europe which resulted in a number of First Time contacts between these two countries on 6 Meters.  I was only running a TS-690S at 100 watts and the only antenna I had was a Cushcraft R5 vertical. The following table lists the First Time contacts ever between Bermuda the following countries.
