K4UAH-6 completed another successful circumnavigation this week, moving at an impressive speed across North America, from the morning od the 6th through the 8th. Overnight, it crossed over the Northern Atlantic, covering a respectible distance before waking up and transmitting a full day of data. This was the sixth complete circumnavigation by K4UAH-6, continuing to provide valuable data and perform above expectations.
