ARRL int. DX Contest
My parents in law were visiting us today, after they were gone I checked 15 meter for CW contest activity. I read the good news that Roger G3XBM made a few contacts yesterday over the big pond with 5 watt. So I thought: I must check 15 meter today. I was running only 5 watt QRP. I worked the following stations: NR5M George from Houston, TX; W1GD Gerald from Wall, NJ; W1HQ contest station from Newington, CT - he replied with FB QRP TU. K1TR Edward from Windham, NH; VX3AT Ron van der Kraats (a very Dutch name) from Islington, Ontario. (New DXCC, because I never worked Canada before!) WO4O Richard from Ridgetop, TN; WE3C John from Fleetwood, PA; W6XR Natan from Freeville, NY; N5PO Marion from Weatherford, TX; W2FU Jeffrey from Webster, NY; W3LPL Francis from Glenwood, MD; W1WEF Jack from Glastonbury, CT; AA1K Jon from Felton, DE; K3LR Timothy from West Middlesex, PA; K1IM Thomas from Union, CT and on 20 meter: KB1H Richard from East Killingly, CT USA. It was great to work so easy with the USA with only 5 watt CW on 15 meter. Wow.
