I changed antennas from
a North delta to an Africa oriented 2 element and the signal went
to 579. That is a good sign, I thought. Suddenly
DX starting sending CQ CQ C98RF UP. I tuned the signal in
with anticipation. I went up 1.5 kHz and called, but without the
/QRP. I must have been the only one that answered him because he
came back to me on the first try! I then told him that I was running
After our QSO was over sounded the orchestra of calling
stations on the same frequency. I sat and enjoyed listening to the
pile-up of DXers. Easy propagation for about an hour and a half
then the signals went down to 459.

2003. Robin, M5AEF, had an
unique CW QSO with RX3BO from Moscow at 17 meters using only 1
watt output. You say 'it is nothing especial for 17 meters', but
what do you say, if you know that Robin did not use any antenna?
Robin was doing a calibration for his FT- 757, and this one was
connected to a dummy load. An antenna did not connected to the transceiver
at this time, the antenna was connected to monitoring receiver, that
does control for quality of the output signal from FT- 757. So,
Robin heard Anatoly, RX3BO, from Moscow and they had QSO with each
other. Robin had received 559 from Anatoly for his dummy- load antenna!
Some minutes later Robin connected his
usual 1,5 lambda antenna to the FT -
757 and did QSO with RX3BO. Robin had received 579!
Don't say me that there are no miracles!
With the best regards!
