    I thought I was doing good :D I'd never seen him before, and things have been pretty 'interesting' on the upper WARC bands lately. I have a pretty basic station too.

    Old Sol is like that. I see people saying that VK9MA shows up at +3dB on this band or that band. I'm still to see them once, never mind complete a QSO.

    15 seems to open on contest weekends, but that may be superstition. 5 years it would be cake. I check out 15 occasionally, hit or miss. In 2012 & 2013, the majority on my contacts were 10 & 15 ssb. I avoided 80, 40 & 20 like the plague, bitter old men railing against the future. Thank God for digital.

    I'm too green to know any better. So far, it's working :D

    I'll be glad when this FT8 fad becomes boring, and blows over.

    It's really making the whole concept of some awards rather less impressive.
