144 Days of DX

I worked CO8LY in Cuba this evening for my 144th day of daily DX contacts. Cuba is such a short distance from here (1,325 miles) ; it's become embarrassingly easy to work this country. Tonight marks the 24th time I've worked Cuba and the 10th I've worked this particular station. I've been dropping my power down to one watt occasionally just for the fun of it.....

I've become somewhat lax on my blog entries lately, but here are the basic facts for the last several days:

There's several short distance contacts here. The Caribbean area is a gold mine for me. I've worked Bermuda several times, and also Ecuador. A surprising and difficult contact was EA7ATE in Spain. I got a nice e-mail from him and expect a card soon.

I've worked a new station in Belarus also. EW8DJ was a good catch: 

Another nice catch was 407TC in Montenegro

Very nice work on the contacts John, with regard to dropping the power down to 1 watt and making the contact it sure is a feeling of surprise when they come back to you for sure. Do what I did and see if you can locate an attenuator and connect that in and drop the power below one watt and see what happens. I have been very happy with QRPp results.

Hello Mike,

Your QRPp contacts are truly amazing. It's mind boggling to think about some of your contacts. Perhaps I'll do the same someday!
