WOW the band was open today... To bad I was working did make some contacts when I had to make a bank run and then had one at Lunch.. Then the ride home got 2 more contacts all in the Mobile..........

19SD348 Henry a good QSO while driving I was 5x5 he was 7x9

136/14AT340 Marc 5x5 doing QSL Xchange he will be there 3 months, so go get him........

25HF-DX I believe this was Yogi had a big truck go by (transister blister wiped out my recieve)while trying to QSO and then was gone

79BM747 Nello


Kind of a split decision what best contact for the mobile 19 Div or 25 Div?
Probaly going have to go with 19 Div today due to more stable

Sure would like to see some of those QSL cards put up here on this thread from the other posters on this thread.
C'mon guys; let's see some of those cards!!!

This is a copy of a QSL card from Twan - that was a contact from yesterday's tally:

Off of the NW coast of Africa?
Niiiiice catch!
Some DX is better than no DX!
That was cool and tasty, 2WD40.

I did better on 10m than I did on 11m today:

14SD223 Rick 5/9 France
163AT116 Beth 5/7 Wales
68AT149 Martin 5/8 N.Ireland
68FB030 Bill 5/8 N.Ireland

But on 10m, I got a bunch @ 5/9. Slovenia, Poland, Spain, Portugal, Netherlands, Scotland, Belgium, and more.
Also a couple of first time contacts that I can add to the log - Lithuania and Sardinia.
JaZZeD . . .

Found this QSL card of Beth from Wales online:

Just a couple on the free band today:

233SD102 Dan 5/9 Romania

1KW001 Luciano 5/7 Italy

Also heard Norway; but that turned out 'no way' as it slipped away before I could get that contact.

Romania is a new country contact for 11m; already got it on 10m.

The Luciano/Italy contact was from my mobile. I talked to him for about five minutes. He had my strength between 5/4 and 5/7. Of course, my mobile is just 35 watts but it did the job again. My first long DX/QSO from my mobile into Europe was Ireland just three weeks ago. Then, Germany two weeks ago. Now, Italy today. Seems to be getting farther into Europe each time. Who knows about next week - at this rate?

10m was really outstanding today. Shined much brighter and clearer than any 11m contact by far. Poland, Sweden (new country contact), Greece (new country contact - 5/9+ at that!), Bosnia/Herzegovina(2), Italy(2), Belgium, Holland, Slovenia, and Germany. Almost had the Ukraine too (5/9+); there were just way too many callers and never had the chance after ~25 minutes of trying/waiting. Many countries were coming in at 5/9+ BTW. Great gear, antennas, and radio operators that know how to handle several hundred contacts and get the job/contact work done right.

Maybe tomorrow then for the Ukraine . . . Maybe . . .

EDIT:

Just got Muar, Maylasia on 10m
Real Jazzed!
