I'm still cheating on the receive, using CWGet as a backup to get stuff I don't copy, but I AM getting better, and I'm not totally "rabbit in the headlights" as much as I was......
so contacts of interest over the last two days?
well, JX9JKA this morning was a new one, Svein on Jan Mayen Islan, which I'd never heard of. its a small island north of Iceland. this radio lark really improves your geography!!
so, that was on SSB, as were a couple of others, but six of these QSOs were CW.
the last was low on the meter and the CWGet software couldn't deal with it, so I did that one completely unaided. I wasn't sure I had the call right...... VE..... really?
yup, my fist DX CW QSO into Halifax in Canada. and popping at #17 in the furthest distance charts.
and as if THAT wasn't enough, he eQSLed me straight away! Anthony, you're a gent!!
