RA9USU Dima has been on from Tripoli Libya for the past few days. He has been loud especially on 40M but thus far I have been unable to crack the wall till tonight.
He showed up on the cluster on 80M but no copy here in FL, just a little ESP. I guess he wasn't hearing much either and in a few minutes he switched to 40M. He was peaking S4 (-96 dBm) with signal to burn and some QSB. I was about 1 minute into the 40M operation tonight, in other words before the pileup and EU/Russian wall had formed. I set my TX +1 and called once and he came right back. Right place right time.
I figured if I didn't get him tonight it wasn't going to happen for me. TNX OM Dima!
