Worked a New Zealand station tonight on 10 meters. This after several stations in Brazil and Chile. TS-820S with A99 cut to 10 meters. Hooked on new HF bands here..2 week old General.

Way to go!

I used to work ZL all the time when I lived in Seattle -- QRP, low part of the cycle -- but I had a great shot to the southwest.  Now, my path in that direction is totally blocked by big mountains, so even with a better antenna and 100 watts, I haven't even heard ZL or VK. Sad

Very congrats.  As Americans, we all grew up thinking of either China or Australia as the other side of the planet.  It really is a great feeling for the kid inside of us as we talk that kind of distance.

Keep plugging away and always find this same joy, no matter how many times you work a certain entity.

Congrats on your General and the aspect of chasing DX!  I noticed the "4" in your prefix and I searched your call and learned that we're fairly close. I'm in Macon, approx. 26 miles north of your community.  
73 and Good DX!
