Tasmania on 40m at 9pm!
An 11,000 - or was it 14,000 - mile surprise...
Robert Todd just popped up on 40m one evening,
and I got lucky. 30m was dead, and 40m was unusually quiet. I
called and heard me call
back. Rob was using 400Wfrom a homebrew amp, a 7300 (of course)
and a vertical antenna.
I cannot find a picture of him anywhere, but
he's a pretty mean photographer and I suspect this image is a lot
Rob says he doesn't do QSL cards, but I don't mind
- I have a far more impressive proof of contact with the DX
