I got them on 15 meters last Saturday.  I\'m going to have to see if I can\'t catch them on some other bands.  A buddy of mine has worked them on 12 through 80.  Everything but 10 and 160.  He told me that when I told him I got them on 15.  He runs about 15 times more power than I run so I still thought I did ok.:)

73,

I meant to tell you Calvin:  Congrats on working them.  I see you did it on code too.  Good job.  I\'ve been practicing my code.  I\'m getting there.  I\'m slow but I\'m havin fun with it.

Same here.

Working DX is easy, you know what they are going to send, and you know your call when you hear it.

But other than at, getting along at 10wpm for regular QSOs. :music049:

Got them on 20m phone today, first call.

It\'s getting easier and easier...I can\'t remember, are they using phased dipole arrays or phased SteppIRs? ;)
