    Don't worry - you'll want to work him again in an hour ;)

    I have worked a couple of Chinese ops (CW) and they are hard birds to catch. Pretty short qso's, most likely a language barrier which is probably why CW is a favoured mode.

    "GaoYi via Chen ZhiRong"

    Whew, not Sum ZhiRong! :)
    Seriously, nice contact.

    "My Rig is YAESU FT-450D, the output power is usually 80W,

    My Aantenna is a 240m LOOP , It normally works on all amateur bands from 80m to 6m with the help of built-in tuner.

    Pretty cool!

    There were several on CW this weekend for the All Asia DX contest. Not a chatty bunch (what contester is?...) but most I've worked have been pretty solid cw operators. One of the problems is that very few of the Chinese operators (I think about 600) have the highest class of license allowing them to run a KW, and most of those are club stations. The vast majority of Chinese licesees are 10 watt FM'ers.

    That said, They aren't exactly common, but they're certainly out there. Also surprisingly tough to work, are the Taiwanese, Hong Kong, and especially Macao. The contests are usually the best shot to work them, I think worked 6 or 7 China stations during the last CQWW DX contest (cw)

    Wow nice catch!

    I hear him fairly often but he must have high local noise because I'll call and call and he never hears me.

    Good job! :) I have yet to work a China station in any mode. I've got Japan and Asiatic Russia but that's it!

    Also it was nice to work you on 20m the other night bill!

    I would imagine working Asia would kinda suck from NJ.
    Around here is is like talking over the fence to your neighbor!:p
