What an unusual morning.....The solar flux wasn't nearly what it's been recently, (it's only 91 now) but while waiting for breakfast, I tuned around the 20 meter band and heard this Sweden station calling CQ DX. Never expecting (in a million years) for him to hear me, I answered. We actually exchanged weather reports (lots and lots of snow there) and he asked for my power again when I hung the /QRP to the end of my callsign.
Lars (SM5CAK) was very kind when he took the few 'extra minutes' to exchange more than the standard info.
What a nice way to start the day.
I was hearing no other stations on the band this morning.
Lars is #44 in my DX log book now.
