For 7 minutes I was calling CQ with JT65A on 20 meter, I made one qso with EA3FHP and I was reported for instance by YV4GJN, VK3JWC (16.372 km) and W2GHD. I was running 5 watts.
On 2 meter tonight I received the voice repeater GB3CF from Leicester with good signals. Very strong signals from the UK on the simplex channels. I heard MØMST/P with 59+ and M3CNG Gareth also 59+ and we made a QSO. I was 57 to 59 with my 5 watt and quarter wave vertical. This is the first time ever I made a simplex QSO to the UK. On 145.600 (repeater GB3WR from Somerset UK) I worked GWØPLJ Ian from Cardiff, Wales.
