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.
