Well, it was certainly a swell evening for me here --- some 18 different European & South American callsigns, all worked A-OK, & in the log...most on the very first call, & many in the midst of "mini-pile-ups" --- definitely a first at VE3CUI!
Could almost sense the excitement in the fists of the Europeans as they responded to calls from "7"-land --- a very FB night, indeed...most stations from the west coast were as strong & as common here as stations from the mid-west...could hardly tell them apart, were it not for the prefixes.
I wish I could stay up past the appointed hour of some 10:00 PM EST here, but I had to get up at 4:30 AM to-day for work, & I'm gonna crash now...let me know please, someone, how the band behaved after 0300UTC, with thanks in advance...! (I'll bet it was stellar.)
