During the CQ WW this weekend, On a 1/2λ dipole set up as an inverted V, I made the following QSO's; Galapagos, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay. Since this was my first time on HF, and on a homemade antenna, with 25w SSB I think i didn't do too bad. The radio was an old Realistic HTX-100 10m ssb/cw transceiver. It was very difficult to tune in these guys then get through on the pileups.

This really excited me! I'm still hearing the tuning noises in my head as I spin the dial, and find that station.

MAN I LOVE HAM!!

Congrats. Yeah, 10 mtrs is a fun band, especially during the peak of the sunspot cycle. Wait a couple of years and it'll get even better.

Last weekend during CQWW, I talked to several areas of the world. About the only areas I didn't hear were Asia and Africa.
