Phone call worth a beer or TWO !

Crazy afternoon today, probably broke few limits driving home after phone call from Ted SP3OCC with info he just worked Yaser 9K2YM on 70MHz !
Quite rare DX on 70MHz, as we need 2 hops (3610km) to get into Kuwait, and of course operator must be there and QRV!

Thank God my QRL is only 15km away, and no Police patrols along, ugh! :-D


After arriving home there was no 9K2YM heard, but Yaser was still QRV according to spots.
Fortunately it was only Es QSB and after few minutes Yaser appeared with growing signals.


Few minutes more and signal reached -01dB WSJT scale and grow even morewith good level to SSB try, so Yaser went to SSB and shot solid s9 in the peaks !



Probably some QRM/noise his end, but after few calls ( screaming rather :-) ) he got my call and SSB QSO was done - 70MHz DXCC #52.

Recorded audio (sri for quality, wav was OK, bad on YT) :  https://youtu.be/G4dOFyxTiws

Also CW from 9K was great, Yaser worked few EU stations on 70.171 MHz. According to his info setuo is only 20W and 8ele Yagi.

No doubt it was phone call worth beer or even TWO - we need to drink for it next occassion Ted!  big THANKS!
