My Most Recent QSO's

CT1BQH Portugal


Another DX station this evening. Carlos (CT1BQH) was finishing a QSO with another station and I decided to try my luck again. Another congratulations from him about my QRP status as he was running about 90 watts. Carlos was sending much faster than I'm comfortable with, but slowed it down enough for a short conversation. I really appreciated this.....

Yes it is very nice when the other station does slow down to your speed. I have had it both ways and when the other station does not slow down but keeps at the same speed. I just get lost and have no idea what is going on with the QSO.

Absolutely....Carlos was sending probably +25 wpm but matched my 17 wpm immediately. Very professional in my book.

btw/ got a nice e-mail from him this morning. This guy is top notch!
