I think I was drunk or I'm masochist to choose 40 Meters QRP
from LU with an inverted Vee antena @ 40 feet, I spent 22 hours
on the air and made only 30 QSOs...
Congratulations to KC1XX, K3LR, JA5BJC & HC8N, they copied my puny
signal on first call without doubt.
I shared the station with LU1AEE (he worked SO AB HP), His face was
smiley with his rates at 150QSOs/hour, very different to my face
at 1 QSO/hour, but the most important thing was that we tested LW8EXF
with 2 radio/2 bands at the same time without any interference.
Many thanks to Nelida-LW8EXF for lending me her fine station, the
highlight of the weekend was the food cooked by Nelida's mother, I
overweighted more lbs. than QSOs mades.
See you in ARRL 10, we will be as L99D MS
