WOW – that was easy, and a great validation of my new Inverted L and tuning circuit. I turned on the rig, tuned to his frequency and worked him right his sunrise enhancement. Minutes later he was gone.
OK – now I only have 10 more left to get to DXCC on 160M plus get an endorsement to get to 9BDXCC. I really do think DXCC on Top Band from the West Coast is as big an accomplishment as Mixed Honor Roll. Mixed Honor Roll took me 11 years – 160M DXCC maybe half that, but the challenge of getting a good signal out and hearing a low noise signal coming in is a big, big deal.
