For the first time I worked England on 2 meter with CW. It was a pleasure that GØFVV Dave (see photo from qrz.com) from Mansfield (402 km) came back for me. I worked only with my quarter wave vertical and 5 watt. I got a 549 report. He was 599 here.
Nice distance for a small antenna and QRP. With SSB I heard M1PAC, G3YDY, GØNED and G4ERO. With CW: MØKIS, GØTPH and G7RAU. I heard the PI7CIS and GB3VHF beacons. It was something else to work on 2 meter instead of HF.
