Well, I was quite surprised. I found 17m was
buzzing, and I put out a CQ and my NBF Hiroshi Matsuzaki was there
in under a minute. I fell off my perch.
This was an amazing session with fabulous DX
all over the shop - which was hinted at by the forecast map.
Days like this are not supposed to happen during sunspot minima,
Watashi wa 7 L 4 to no saisho no renraku ni hijō ni kansha shite
Well, I really didn't
expect this call sign. I had no clue 7L4 was from Japan, and vyk
suffix sounded like "cyk" being read back to me. It
seems that all call signs
ending in "yk" are doomed to confuse! I got a dose of
my own call sign confusion medicine.
A really delightful first encounter with
Hiroshi on 20m
Nice signal, no problems of any sort -
best of all, no shouty southern european party crashers!
