This morning I worked EG7NL Claudio from Almeria, Spain with SSB. He was one of the few stations I heard on 20 meter. I got a 59 report. Not bad from the South of Spain. Another Dutch station after me got a 57 report. So I trust his 59. Hi. Back to 40 meter SSB I called DL2KBY/P Werner from the German/Austrian border with a 59. We had a nice QSO. I checked both bands for CW stations, and heard not that much, so I am still convinced that I can work SSB with the same success as CW or PSK31. Maybe CW and PSK31 are slightly better. Werner was running 100 watt into a long wire. I got a 55 report from Werner. In the afternoon I worked with SSB on 40 meter SP3VBF Michal from Chodziez, and I admire his patience for picking my signal out of the QSB, in the peak 55. Also worked DL3CH Werner from Erlangen near Munich, Germany.
