New DXCC Cuba
It has been a long to add a new DXCC to my list. Last night I was listen on 20 meter. Only European stations calling 'State Side' and I could hear stations from the USA, but not possible for me to work them. So I went to 17 meter PSK part of the band. I saw CO8LY (Fernando from Santiago de Cuba) in my waterfall. I tried to work him with QRP, but nope. So I put up the power to 45 watts and now he could hear me. Yes, a new DXCC. I was a bit nervous and because to send Bye 73, I began to send the CQ macro... sorry. Also worked IW5AUD on 17 meter with BPSK31. On 40 meter I worked LZ65P with SSB QRP. To add some new countries this weekend: try to work some stations with the CQ WW WPX Contest (the rules) operators are willing to work you to get some points. Have a nice weekend.
