|This photo was taken immediately after I worked 3B9/OE4AAC on 17m CW showing the split.|
This evening, I saw 3B9/OE4AAC spotted on 17m CW. I had been trying him on 30m CW this morning without success. But this time he was on 17m, so I swung the MA5B minibeam towards him and could hear him. I figured out that he was listening roughly 1-2 KCs up, so I worked hard to keep up with where he was listening. After about 10 minutes I heard him working a station on 18.079.2 so I called him there and out of the noise I could hear "2KC 5NN" so I gave my call again, "R R DE EI2KC 5NN 5NN TU" and he came back "EI2KC 5NN TU". Yeesss!!!! Two brand new DXCC in one day. Not bad at all.
