I try to make at least three CW QSOs every day, but some days it’s harder than others. Tonight, for example, I got on after the CQ WW DX contest ended at 0000Z, but band conditions were really not good for domestic contacts.
For example, I worked N2ATB near Philadelphia, and in our previous five contacts he was 599 every time. Tonight, however, we struggled to keep contact.
The band must have been long, though, as I logged EA6UN for the third time. I also heard–and called–DL0CI. Even though he was 569 here, he didn’t come back to me.
Oh, well. I did manage to make my three QSOs in spite of poor conditions.
