Yeah, out here on the west coast 6 meter foreign dx contacts have been very thin. Maybe it's because europe with its rich dx is much closer to the east coast and contacts can be made with sporadic e condtions. Also lots of foreign dx close by to them from the caribbean region. Also the east coast is much closer to african nations and when transequatorial propagation occurs to south america the east coast and gulf states seem much better postioned than the west coast. Lots of rich dx in the south pacific but the west coast never hears them unless we have F2 propagation conditions.
