Another great contact there Mike and good to see your FT4 activity screen. HF Contacts 20m  - Page 2 1f44d 

I've often tried again & again with a difficult contact but they all seem to give me up after three transmissions. I'll often hang on keeping an eye on the contact screen though and try and nab them again when their signals pick back up. That helped me bag Africa and some 80m contacts on my short antenna.....doesn't seem to work with USA contacts though?!?!
(PSK reports show me as received but hard to get a reply?)

Anyway, always enjoy seeing your WSJTX activity as it spurs me on. Well done again with that contact.

Don't know if you do but always make sure that the slot you are using is clear.
Move to a clear slot if it appears you lost them as stations can jump on top of
you and, this can happen mid QSO so keep a good eye on it.

As to the DX sometimes you get lucky, I heard FW1JG but no else did.
I got him quite quickly but normally there is an instant pileup.

Just keep at it and I'm sure they will come.
Get summer out the way and we can see what's possible.

Mike
The cards are the ones that are emailed to me.
I have been saving the emails for some time now.
Then i had the idea of sending them over to my phone and using freeprint to get them printed out.
There is more than one app that you can get so many printed a month for free just pay postage.
I had hundreds and hundreds back in the day but all lost in a divorce lol.

Had QSO with youtuber Raisa R1BIG while she was out portable today. SSB, 10w. Ordinarily not an overly difficult area to reach, but if anyone has tried to contact her before then you will know the luck you need to break her pileup as she seems to be a magnet for the ham radio male population... including me it seems Embarassed Laughing

Ha! Ha! Very Happy

Bees around a honey pot? Wink


It was funny when I last visited a Ham club, (back when I was first investigating taking my Foundation), and all of a sudden those shirt tails were tucked with much breathing in of stomachs when a woman turned up. (Not me, T shirt hanging out whilst hanging desperately onto my walking stick!)

I had a brilliant conversation with her discovering she had a degree in Biology, worked at a University, just taken her Foundation and was an overall charming and very intelligent woman. Best intellectual conversation I'd had in quite some time and was a pleasure.

I'm pretty sure your contact was the thrill of getting another contact in the log and Raisa being well known with her Youtube videos and radio activity. HF Contacts 20m  - Page 2 1f44d

Nice one for the log Neal and well done.

Not great dx but interesting contact on the 21st via FT4
I have worked this station a few times but did not realize the ship was a VLCC.
The ship is the Sea Majesty VLCC 330000tons deadweight.

Spent hour this evening on FT4.

Worked Italy, Romania, Turkey, Japan, Bosnia Herzegovina, Tanzania, USA, Iceland and Indonesia.
High light was 5H8HZ at 17:47utc KI64
Boy it was hard work he was quite reasonable with me but didn't hear me for ages.
Kept going back after other QSOs and then just when I thought that was it he called me.
