    Somebody I know is going to have to crawl out of bed at 0430 local time for a crack at this one.

    My best: (BOTH confirmed with paper QSL cards)

    Z81X (2013) 15m CW,
    3B9FR (2014) 20m CW

    Both worked with my Tentec Century-22 (15w out to a 40m OCF inverted "L" up only 20ft, w/a Drake MN-7 tuner)

    Right Place,... Right Time ;) :D

    Only being licensed a short time, but working bunch in that time has Bennett fun. I'll drop a few highlights from the last 4 years.

    3/15/15- 1 month after getting my general license I worked UK8OWW, Uzbekistan on 100w and a wire. I sent a qsl card, lo and behold 3 and 1/2 months later I got one back in the mail! My prized card for sure.

    5 days later at 00:45z I worked the station in the Congo, 9Q0HQ. The only station on the band I could hear at the time, another prized card.

    3/4/17- A new qth with a little more room, I built my first real antenna outside a dipole, 160m inverted L. I worked NP2J, US Virgin Islands, on 160m with my home made antenna, still 100w. I was proud of myself.

    I just upgraded to Extra class a month ago. My friend was ribbing my saying I needed to use my new privileges. I hopped on 20m and worked South Africa. Not a new one, but new to my operating class.

    Now I'm enjoying hunting /AG and /AE ops. Also upgrading a low band antenna for more juicy dx on 40 and 80, and prepping for the bands to come back.

    FH/UA4WHX on 20 and 17m CW, over the last couple of days. This is #303 for me! Vlad is a fantastic op, with great ears! Check out his QRZ page at UA4WHX, for the antenna that he uses on these DXpeditions.
