Worked my first ever VK on 160 the previous weekend along with ZL, heard two VK stations... All were well after SR in East Tn and all on the Tx antenna, no Rx up yet. Easy copy and two outa three with 100 watts ain't bad!

Looks like a fun season in the making!

See ya Sunday in the Tennessee QSO Party.. running QRP from Grainger County.
