Sometimes I try to work DX, though it is not easy with QRP. I avoid too big pile ups. But it is not always busy. I use DXWATCH.com and make a filter for e.g. 20 meter CW. It very useful because I know which dx station is calling. And sometimes I try my luck and it works. On the photo you can see that I reported OY2J, I will not be childish even when he refuses to work EU. I will help other hams outside Europe, that he is calling. I wont bother him with a call. I respect his outside Europe call. What should you do? UA4NFQ Boris from Kirov, Russia was willing to work me. With PSK31 on 20 meter. 2914 km, so not bad. Even while the solar flux is 82, conditions are poor on 20 meter. 40 meter sounds alright. I read that Dick N2UGB is QRV on 20 meter, so I will check out 14.060 KHz to see if I can hear or work him.
