I heard this station (LX1DA) yesterday but couldn't work him. This morning was a successful contact (CW) on 15 meters. I'm finding 15 meters to be a very good band for me in the morning.
I also worked ON7USB in Belgium and another Switzerland station HB9TJR, but they were SSB contacts. SSB isn't much of a challenge for me. Quite honestly, anyone can speak into a microphone. I'll work a few for amusement, but there's nothing in my book like CW. I simply like dots and dashes.
I heard a strong Hungary station (HA5AWT) in CW and a strong (SSB) station in Newfoundland (VO1KVT) but couldn't work them.
The contacts this morning puts me at 150 in the DX log book. A lot of people with mega stations, running mega power, would laugh at this, but I'm quite happy to have done this with QRP power and "non-gain" antennas. It's been very fun for me....
