Morocco # 59

My second recent contact in the African continent was CN2R and another new DX entity this evening. I feel extraordinarily lucky to be in the right place at the right time. This was a 17 meter SSB contact which is becoming very rare for me. I guess I'm getting greedy and grabbing new DX anywhere and with any means possible.

Back to 30 meter cw again, I was able to work HA9RT in Hungary also. Amazingly he was 599 into the Kanawha Valley.

Another great catch! I think you're going to have QRP DXCC under your belt before you know it.

Hi John, another fine contact, I seldom work SSB, and sometimes I do like it. 73 Paul

Hi John and special congrats on that SSB QRP Morocco contact. Not an easy catch at any antenna/power/mode level. 73 Dick

Hello Gang,

Hello Larry, I'm getting closer every day now but still a very long way to go. Hihi

Paul, I'm the same way but have decided to work those new DX entities in any mode but CW is always my preferred mode. Hihi

Hello Dick...never thought a random wire could be so effective. 30 meters seems to be a nightly DX band for me now.

I love 30 meters and actually use my 80 meter Inverted V to operate on that band. Gotta love the thrill of the hunt especially when you can make the contact. Nicely done!!

Hello Phil,

More excitement than running from an angry full grown Moose! BTW/ Hope to work Alaska very soon on 30 meters.
