KD4POJ completes my WAS!

2011 has been a great year! Today I went through my last patch of bureau cards and found KD4POJ-s card from North Dakota. This one was a missing piece from my WAS puzzle. What a nice Christmas present ;)

5000-th station from US!

Time to celebrate - I worked my 5000-th station from USA today. Lucky 'winner' is K7UT, Darryl from Utah.

It was a real struggle to work a US station when I started 2 years ago with my 43ft vertical. Going to 2el wire beam made all the difference. Thank you all for those wonderful QSOs!

Whole list is here

12m - here I come!

Finished my first ever 12m band antenna. You guessed it - another moxon. First 3 weeks have been above expectations - 540 JA-s and 1128 W-s. If I had to take it down already - I would definately say it was well worth the effort. I intend to leave it up until spring. Hope to work many more during this upcoming cold winter.
