R0FA Sakhalin Island QSL Card
Got my verification QSL card from (R0FA) Sakhalin Island today! Should you take the time to read a few entries back; this island is shared by both Japan and Russia. I was able to work him with 3 watts and an indoor random wire antenna. This station was just above the mainland of Japan and a little East of China. When I spotted him on the cluster, he realized that I was "QRP" and stopped the "pile up" to say a special "hello". You won't find many willing to do this.....my reward for a great contact!
I've been out of town for a few days and turned the radio on immediately to see if anything was on the air. I worked OK1PL for the third time on 30 meters.
