I got Desecheo!! At 1932z I made a QSO with K5D (op WB9Z) split on 18.145.
He was listening on 18.145 and I was on 18.154.5. He was listening up
18.150 to 18.160.
I called almost the entire time from when they went on at 1600z. For me,
it was up and down a lot where I could hear him great and then not hear
him. He’s been very strong now for about 15 mins before I contacted him.
Can’t wait until I can confirm I am in their logs which will be viewable
on the web. I hope to make some more including on RTTY.
Earlier in the week I had a QSO with Svalbard which is a new DXCC for me. I sent off a direct QSL card to JW5NM.
