My Most Recent QSO's

SQ8MZW Poland


Without a doubt, (SQ8MZW)  the most difficult QSO I've made in a long time....but worth every minute of it! I listened carefully as he finished up another QSO and then sent my call sign.

This guy deserves an extra bonus for working this QRP station!

We must have sent  a dozen repetitions before we both copied each others names, states and rigs. I really have to give credit where due for pulling my weak signal out of the air! My signal 339.....
I really don't know how he did it!

A few minutes earlier I heard CO2KK in Habana Cuba but still couldn't work him no matter how hard I tried.

Very good, John. My experience (in the USA) has been very positive when running QRP with DX stations. They don't mind taking the time to get the essentials...call, name, QTH. Of course we QRPers in the USA don't mind repeating the info requested. Makes for a satisfying experience all the way around. 73 Dick

Hello Gang,

Yes...it was a good days for me. If I could only work CO2KK now. Hihi.

I've been hearing Italy, Estonia, and Hungary. If the sunspots hold out just a little more....

Can't wait to get outdoors and away from this electrical noise.
