I heard a familiar call this morning on 15 meters. F6HKA (Bert) was sending a "whooping" signal into West Virginia and asking for SKCC numbers. He heard me very well with my 5 watts and the indoor dipole. We exchanged SKCC numbers and I went on to work several other DX stations. I've worked Bert four times now, but this was my first contact on 15 meters.
He usually sends me an electronic "card". I'll post it when it arrives.
This morning I also worked EC7DZZ and EA1EJ in Spain, LA4UOA in Norway, and IZ4NPE in Italy.
I tried desperately to work S57WJ in Slovenia but couldn't get him to hear me well enough for a good exchange.
My DX contacts are now 155. (Nine of them have been for the new year of 2012).
