DX X 4 on 10 AGN
Despite poor forecasts and a solar flux index of only 107, I still found activity on 10 meters this morning. I worked two new French stations; F4GGQ and F5VNB. I also heard strong stations in other parts of eastern Europe, like TK5KP (France) and MW0ZZK (Wales). As a surprise, I listened to PJ7TM in St Martin, and then heard (and worked) WP4NXO in Puerto Rico. These three stations were worked with 10 watts SSB power. .
XE1ZW near Mexico City. Bill was pushing a tremendous signal up the east coast. His signal was a 599+ and I thought he was in my local city. He is also a new DX entity (#50) for me. For some strange reason, Mexico has always been difficult for me to capture. My signals rarely go easily towards South America.
Today's contacts bring my total DX Stations to #172 which have been worked with QRP power and a "simple wire antenna" with NO gain.
