I'd been listening to the SSB portion of 20 meters again this afternoon and was hearing several Italian and English stations. I knew they weren't loud enough for me to work them. But it did tell me the band was again open to Europe.
When I went to CW mode, I immediately heard F6HKA calling CQ WES from France. I knew the call sounded familiar, and sure enough, I worked Bert back in February of this year.
I find it a little eerie when a DX station returns my call and says GE John......
Of course, this is a fantastic shack. (I keep my computer in another room so usually don't have the info pulled up on the screen) Hihi
We exchanged SKCC #'s. Bert is also a Fists member.
He was my 37th DX contact back in November. Today he is # 67....hey, thats about 30 contacts later in 60 days?????
Yeehhh...........I'm proud of that!
