What a great day I had on the radio today.
I worked the Waverly Amateur Radio Society special event station VI2BV90 on both 20m and 40m. The special event station is to celebrate the 90th anniversary on the society. I had seen news of this station and was very pleased to hear them calling CQ as soon as I turned the radio on this afternoon, and I worked them with my first reply.
I also worked Bob, VK0BP, who is in Antarctica and is my first VK0 QSO. I have been listening out for Bob since he went down south and tonight was the first time I had heard him and, after a couple of calls, I got to work him.
After working Bob I tuned around a little more and heard the longest callsign ever. LM9K75Y. I had to hear it three times before I was sure I had it correct. It took me quite a while to get through the dog pile but I was successful and added this special event call to my increasing log.
The one station I didn’t hear tonight was VK4KWI. I have been hoping to work Trevor since he arrived in VK but our paths are yet to cross. He is here for another 4 years so there is plenty of time to catch up.
