What are some "miracle" contacts you've made on CW (not the most ideal set up, but got a great contact).??? I don't have the best antenna. Just a 33ft end fed wire.. 10 feet is up vertical near the house. The rest of it goes diagonally to a tree at about 35 ft up. I managed to make a contact in North Pole, Alaska on that (got the QSL card this week!). I don't know how, but I'm hoping to hit Hawaii sometime (I really would like to work all 50 states on CW while a Tech...Seems like a fun goal...If anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears.).
