Do my two contacts via FO-29 using a single vertical co-linear at 30ft

VE9QRP @ 4702Km
W1FC @ 5355Km

After all it is at a fixed elevation!!!

Dear friends,

here is my best LEO contacts made by using no elevation on 2 yagi antennas.
Antennas used:

12 el. 3wl for Vhf H pol.
21 el. 6wl for Uhf H pol.

IZ1EGT (JN44LK) -> VA3DB (FN25DI) 03/01/2005 FO29 J CW qrb 6343 km.

Sincerely I found that elevation is not needed on Vhf while it
increases drastically sigs in Uhf.

Best 73s
