Only have a Steppir vertical and IC7600 and was able to get you on several bands and modes. THANKS for digging me out. I heard VP6D on 160 meters, about S 6 to 7 but don't have an antenna for 160. 73 & thanks again for a new one... W 7 You Know Nothing

Outstanding signal strength on 15 and 17m. First time for both bands. Never thought we would get through the jam-up with 100W but got response with first call on 17m. Great operators to work Thanks for making my week.

Was in a QSO on 18.130 and had no idea you had designated it as one of your frequencies so I was surprised when you came on the air and requested the frequency to use. Was happy to move when heard who you were. Even happier to be your first contact without having to fight they the pile up that followed. Great signal in Ohio. Running 100w with R8 vertical up 50ft 73’s. JIM

Awesome dxpedition. excellent ears and skill. Until now wkd on 80, 40, and 30m with my 16m high vertical + 150 radials, power 100 watts only. Heard s7 this morning on 160m with my Inverted-L (and 150 radials too). Did not get them with 100 watts yet, but I will persevere. Wkd on 17m with Yagi 2el 15m up. Only 100 watts. Keep up the good work ! 73 de F5MDB Walt

TNX for QSO on 20 meter SSB this evening. Can"t believe I got through with 100w and a hex beam. Operator was outstanding. Keep up the good work. Suggest that you might want to listening for East Coast when band is open. Very difficult to break through the West Coast Stations. TNX for new one and hope to work you on some other bands.
