Crazy ass band opening late tonight. I worked Armenia (new), Kuwait, and finally Lebanon (new). Lebanon was weak and I heard him call me back and give my call sign. However, his report never came thru as QSB just wiped him out.

So, I have no idea if I am in the log, so I emailed and told him that if I am not, no biggie as I will try another day. Not sure if not getting the report disqualifies it.

Congrats on two new ones.  Getting a card from Lebanon could be harder than the QSO itself  Cheesy  Puzant is currently S9 here in CO.  On 20m we are just getting started  Grin

His rate is like 50%. And there are not many friendlies toward him. He gets abused on the spotter.

Ya, I've worked Puzant several times but I never seem to be able to QSL.  I think they have a lot of mail issues there.  He was very loud last night though.

He responded via email, and verified the QSO is good!

Yup, next trick is getting the card.  I've emailed with him several times about our Qs.

Still can't get a card.  Gonna try certified delivery receipt next time.  If Lebanon does tat with te USPS.

I wonder if he takes Paypal. It would make life a lot easier.

One more "congratulations!"  You're having a great run lately!  Wink   I got a QSL from OD5NH with no problems, a few years ago.  He's got some instructions on his QRZ page (I just looked) and if you follow those, you should have no trouble.  Good luck!

I was in the unlucky group for mail to OD5NH. Fortunately, I have also worked OD5PY, a LoTW user. Set an alarm for him.

I worked him last night also. He was very loud. I sent him an email as requested to get mailing instructions for QSL. We will see what happens. Also worked the Yemen group late yesterday afternoon on 17 meters. It was fairly easy. Got him on 3rd call now 20 is another story completely.

I heard the Armenia station booming in here right on 14.225. With a general license, it's torture to hear a station (and an unworked country at that) on your portion of the band that you can't (see below) call without spilling outside your privileges.

At least I've always assumed that transmitting at 14.225 in USB would be pushing it. It didn't seem to stop dozens of general license holders from calling him, but I'd always thought you need to be just a bit above the the bottom band edge and 2-3 kHz below the top band edge on USB (and the opposite in LSB). Am I correct?

I really need to get my Extra so I don't have to worry so much about such things.

Absolutely correct if you want to chase DX.  The hardest part about the exam is getting started.  GL.
