    Get on the air legally on the other side of the world. I operated 9V1YW for a couple of hours in June of 1993. I'd worked him before my trip to Singapore so I looked him up (he was "Mister Nokia" in Southeast Asia at the time). He asked me to come to dinner with him, his wife and two teenaged sons. When we got to his apartment he turned on the station and indicated that I could operate using HIS call sign. One short CQ and there was a pileup including very few W/K stations. This was on 15 meter CW, about 1800 9V1 time.

    However, any time a Finnish station called, Simo took over. If you've ever seen a sample of written Finnish, you can imagine what it sounds like on CW. I can copy Japanese and a bit of Russian, but Finnish would be the end.
    (Clever pun!)

    I agree, If you plan to install a new 2 meter boomer type antenna set up your rig and amp look at the moon through the boom and do it. them go ahead and install it for earthly contacts.
