LZ307MU on 30M at 3:30 PST (2233z)

I was very surprised to hear Bulgaria on 30M at 2200z, and then after a while I decided, what the heck – why not call him. Sure enough – he had a real hard time hearing me, but I used the DX Engineering DV-40-P – my 40M vertical array on 30M – because its SWR is just fine.

I proved today that this antenna is great on 30M. So now I have very good antennas from 160 – 20M, and after getting the 20M yagi up another 20 feet or so, I should be in great shape to work 3Y0Z.

Conditions were quiet, that’s the main reason why I worked him, and so today was a pretty special day – with ZS5IE workable until he QRT’ed at 9:30 AM PST, and LZ workable in the 3 PM PST hour – both were classic “special” winter time conditions.
