EA2IF Spain



I had trouble working Guru (EA2IF) on the first attempt. I was afraid I had lost a DX contact because the signal was so weak, I couldn't get the exact call.....and was cursing my futile attempt at another DX contact this afternoon. I copied the name and QTH but just couldn't hear the correct call. When looking at the DX clusters, I didn't see anything similar to the call I had written down.

But after a few more stations had worked him, the signal picked all the way up to 559. This time I could hear him clearly and when I sent my call again, he immediately came back to me. I explained my error and he re-affirmed the contact with a big QSL.

When I looked at his bio.....e-qsl was listed as a preferred method of confirmation. I was already in his log book and the card was there in less than a minute.

Hi John, you made some extraordinairy QSOs lately. eQSL is a great system. I don't understand why some HAMs do not accept them. 73, Bas

Hello Bas and Paul,

It seems like I'm working another DX station every evening. Hihi

Postage rates these days are just ridiculous. My last DX QSL card cost me almost $5.00 and arrived 45 days after the mailing. Won't do that anymore.....
