In reply to G4OBK:
I hope you & Judy are having a nice trip
It was very nice to work you on Saturday 13th on G/SE-013 with a fantastic signal on 60m here in Blackburn. We must have been at just the right distance that day & you did mention that you would try to get me some Continental summits while you were on your tour.
The first came sooner than I thought it would!
I saw that you were spotted on 7.032 CW on Sunday from ON/ON-001 & took a listen. As my CW is very rusty, to say that I found it a little bit mad on there would be an understatement, & I can understand why those who may not be very proficient in CW are put off using the mode after listening on 7.032 & taking that as an example of what all CW SOTA QSO’s are like. The sheer number of stations calling at once can make it a very daunting prospect, but, realising that this may be my only chance to work you from that summit I left my keyer set at 20WPM (a bit slower than most others on at that time) & gave you a call. Thank you for replying amidst the pile up you had
It all went by very quickly but I got my report & I believe you got yours too, but with all the chaos on that frequency I didn’t get anything else if it was there, despite the once again, superb signal you were putting out.
It seems so much more civilised on Top Band
It was very nice to work you a little later on SSB, which I have to say, was much easier for me.
Hopefully I will work you from another continental summit over the weekend, conditions permitting
