Worked the station the first day on 10 meters at a little before 8 AM, very early for W5 land to hear that part of the world. I could barely hear him, but the signal came out of the noise for a minute or so and I was fortunate to get a contact.
Thinking he would answer e-mails after the dxpedition, I e-mailed him thanking him for his patience in hanging in with me on the qso. To my surprise, this morning I got a response from Rob, the operator there, thanking me also! To make it even better, I am in the log according to www.clublog.org
I am a happy ham now! One band and one slot is enough for me!
