My Saturday morning

I got into the shack about 7.30 on saturday morning, fired up the
computer, went to SOTAwatch and saw WG0AT was on 15 meters on a summit. I
didnt think there was any hope, but I pointed the beam to North America
and low and behold I could hear the stations working Steve, but not
Steve himself. Listened for a while then all of a sudden Steve came up
out of the noise and here is the result.

Steve missed my call the first time as he was chasing his goat Boo away from his back pack that contained Steve’s lunch

A first for both of us. My first North American summit and Steve’s first VK from a summit.


Hello Mike,
Well done on the contact and of course the recording is great to hear. I think you were a bit mean with your report though 8)
Two happy people!
Best wishes.

Steve made the recording, and he was hearing me much better than I was hearing him. It was a great contact for both of us no matter what the reports. You can hear the excitement in Steve’s voice when he realized it was a VK calling him.
I hope we can do it again some day.
