I was calling CQ with JT65A on 15 meter, 40 watts and my Sand Piper antenna. No takers, but enough spots at Hamspot.net the stations who spotted me: UT3IB, KF1Z, UA3ARC, KN3A, W1KF, K9OHI, W6CQZ/4, KF4ZPN, WBØPGZ, K3DCW, N4RP, AB1NJ and DC2RK. I was calling CQ only for 5 minutes!

Rag Chewing on 40 meter
I did some rag chewing on 40 meter with some Dutch stations on 40 meter. I met PA2SSL Simon from Duiven and PDØMP Florian from Spijkenisse. And PA5CA Frans from Zutphen, PA4RJ Richard from Amsterdam, PA3JVC John from Groningen and PB1ATA Theo from Hilversum. I did a little test with my Sand Piper MV-5+3 antenna vs the End Fed. The End Fed performed a little better than the Sand Piper, almost no difference. If you keep different polarisation in mind, so I am satisfied about the Sand Piper. Today I also worked RD3AMP with MFSK16 on 15 meter. I do not hear a lot of MFSK16 on the bands, but when I hear one I switched the mode.
Results on 10 meter WSPR with 5 watt.
