Iceland new DXCC
It took a long time before I get Iceland in my log. I did with WSPR but not with other modes. Last night I gave CQ on 40 meter with PSK31 and TF2MSN came back for me. Finally. That makes my DXCC total 98. I also worked S58X on 40 meter. This morning I gave CQ on 40 meter SSB with 5 watt. And PAØDML Menno from Schildwolde came back for me. He was 59+ very strong. I got a 58 report. After 5 minutes his signal dropped to S0, so we must ended the qso. I worked also ON3LX/P with 5 watt SSB on 40 meter. The end fed wire works pretty well on 40 meter. With PSK31 I work easily 2000 - 3500 km at night. So I am curious what it will do when winter time is at hand.
