Roger G3YRO and a French station (F6AGM?) made it into the log. I heard several other EU stations with nice signals but did not work them as they were in QSO and my operating time was only during TV commercials as I was watching the Olympics.
I worked UK9AA last month and tried to work him again last night; twice he came back and faded into the noise so I was unable to log him again. I second Ken’s comments about Roger and the Wednesday activity night! Great idea Roger! 73 Mark K3MSB On Feb 22, 2018 8:04 AM, "Kenneth Grimm" <gr...@sbc.edu> wrote: > Thanks for the QSO Roger.
