1. I heard HS0CZY/4 on 30 meter CW, Q5 copy on the flex. This was with my Par end-fed half have, oriented all vertical. This operator really knows how to run a pileup. Unfortunately, I did not break through the wall of EU stations (just after their dinner time).
2. I copied VR4VBI on 20 meters JT65A, using the Zero-Five vertical.
Both of these events represent something significant. For the first time in MANY years, I am hearing Asia for real. Not just JA, but further out beyond that. This bodes well for my quest into Asia for additional DX.
Also, put up my 6 meter hex yagi into the attic. Will try for some meteor scatter in the coming mornings.
73 and good DX!
