Rockin' all over the world

Forgive my child-like enthusiasm, dear reader, but I'm really pleased to see the latest spot maps of my over-night WSPR contacts on the FT 817 (30m, 2W, g5rv)...

Alaska, Greenland, South Dakota (not a million miles away from my old home in Wyoming), Puerto Rico, Uganda and Australia looks like a good catch to me.

It would be interesting to know to what extent the location of my spots is a reflection of my (essentially) figure-of-eight antenna directivity (the g5rv lies approximately North/South) or a reflection of the relatively low operator densities to the North and South of my qth.
