20 years after

In May ’91 I was still a class B licenced as PY1LJA I made my first QSO to the St. Peter and St. Paul Rocks (PY0S). I remember being very excited about it, with my old FT-757 running 100W to my trusty R-7 vertical.

Now, almost exact 20 years after, I had access to the original paper log of the DXpedition. Since I still have my own paper logbook, I had the chance to make this photo, showing both logs side by side on the page of the QSO.

This is something that would never be possible in the era of digital logbooks.

Triple Play Completed

I´ve just completed a QSO with Dwayne, WY7FD, #150 on my Triple Play Award. That means working and confirming in LOTW all the 50 US states on all 3 modes.

WY on RTTY was pretty ellusive, but Dwayne was kind enough to set up a sked tonight.

The cradits are already in the system, and the award is requested.

Dx is so good!
