On November 3rd 2020, PJ2BR made several TEP QSO's on 2m SSB with Argentina. Around 00:00 UTC, the first QSO was made with LW2DY. Followed by LW2DAF, LU5BE and LU3DYK. Signals suffered from QSB and audio distortion. Grid squares FK52 <-> GF05, distance of approx 5270 Km, breaking PJ2BR's previous record of 4730 Km (SSB with D4VHF). Video of the QSO is available.
