    That would have been a great one had it not got away!

    I hope to catch a few minutes on air when I get home, but can't imagine there'll be any world-beating DX today.

    Congratulations!

    I was first licensed in Class B in 1985, then Class A in 1987. And, like the other David, I'm not sure I'd pass the modern way either!

    Great result, Andy!

    I didn't have any time yesterday, not even to switch on the rig.

    I'll be busy on Wednesday at work, with only the early morning to get something in the log. Sounds better than it is, though, as I have a college dinner tomorrow evening, and by the time I've done a...

    Poor band conditions and severe lack of time (quarter of an hour between getting home from work and going to college for dinner) means my 1W only netted me UE16SA at 2,450 km today.

    I know. You have to hold your nose, swallow hard, and use Windows.

    At home, I have dipoles for 20, 17, and 15m, on a 6m fishing pole in my microscopically small city-centre garden. At the...

    Bettered slightly with EA8GP in the Canaries, at 2980 km, but nothing to compare with your excellent QSO with Teddy. Well done, Andy!

    Best of the last 10 minutes is UT7MT/QRP, with 1W both ways. Only 2682 km, though, so a bit pathetic. I'll try in a bit to better that.
