Hello from Seattle, Wa 
I brought this up before and it had little to no traction. I can very occasionally work into N. Eu. with very little time available. I suggest we unofficially designate a "watering hole" frequency for DX efforts. We had this on AO-40 sobsob) and it worked pretty good. I suggest 145.947 for this effort. Either cw or SSB. Most likely CW as signals are marginal at low elevations. With little time available it will easier to find and make these contacts. I have not heard Mika OH8MBN for awhile or few other N.Eu. stations. So you Gents across the pond at near your LOS try 145.947. You can put a note on this bb for a heads up warning.
