I think I was just lucky to be at the right place at the right time, Klaus.

There was heavy QRM on 40. (so what’s new :slight_smile: )

Hi Klaus, yes lots of UK stations wrkd Ralf on 80m.
I had a strange one with him, Ralf heard my rprt and I hear 55 come back but nobody confirms good contact, next time I hear 55/59, the mind can play tricks with difficult cndx, then Steve GW7AAV called me on 70 cms and tells me it was good contact first time 55. So, do I claim the points or not? Strange one. Any one help please, don’t want to claim if wrong.

Thanks Mick, it is annoying having made the contact, even worse because it would be my first EI sota.
It would be interesting to enter it in the database and see if it gets a star.
I was certain I heard 55 come back from Ralf first time, but didn’t hear Ralf confirm it when I said qsl the 55, it’s one of those grey areas.
I’m honestly not bothered about it Mick, it really doesn’t matter, the spirit of sota and honesty is more important to me than a few points, maybe I’ll get EI from John BVE when he visits later in the month.
Cheers Mick

I like your new rig.

I agree with you 100% Mick, luckily it’s only happened to me once in the early days when someone “thought” they were helping by relaying a report, a non sota stn I hasten to add, and even though I heard the report clearly from the activator, I didn’t enter it.
Can’t argue, you are spot on.
Catch you later.

In reply to GW0DSP:
Hi Mike,
I am back in the hotel, was a hard activation. Later I want to tell more. If you see the antenna above the ground, you are wondering how this could work. Mick, I heard you 55, but in the qsb you dropped also with your signal to 51-2, but still readable all the time. With my 3-5 wtts on the 10m-wire it is normal I vanished in the noise. Unfortunatly I do not have the rapport from you and for me to count a complete qso I want to have callsign and both rapports. So I’m sorry, but I can not put our uncomplete qso into the database. But I hope you will call me again next time.

73’s,
Ralf DH3IAJ (EI/DH3IAJ)

Hi Ralf
Thanks for claifying the issue for me, I heard 55 from you, but did not realise that you didn’t receive my report back to you, I have not put the contact into the sota database, because I wasn’t certain that our contact was complete, maybe next time Ralf.
I hope you are enjoying your visit to Ireland and wish you a safe and pleasant journey back home.
