FREQ 300 QSO #2: ZL3CW

I caught Jackie in the CWT sprint – or whatever it is that they do with that contest

Jackie was supposed to go to Heard Island with the VK0EK team, but we had several years of delays. I remember I almost quit the project, but hung in there and it ended up being a great success. Jackie is a great CW op, and a very nice guy.

Its not as far as this morning’s VK6 DX, but this was on 20M at 0332Z – and he was a solid 599. He gave me a 599 – and the QSO was very easy – so I know he heard me well enough – I guess it could have been a 599 – but its a contest QSO – hi hi. In fact, one of the strategies I will use is to respond to contesters or single DXers when they get bored and need my QSO.

That was fun – and geez – QRP at the bottom of the cycle on 20M – when the bands are supposedly closed? Most excellent. Zero sunspots today.
