I went out for a SOTA trip today in the hot, hot part of the day here in Southern California. Ugh. However, I got to W6/SC-229 and set up my 20/30 trapped end-fed. I built this recently and the final SWR turned out to be disappointing in that I wanted to be able to use it without a tuner, but in the end it works great with my KX2 as it needs very little tuning to bring it down to 1:1. I started on 20 meters and got four QSOs fairly quickly, including one S2S. And then, magic happened. I thought I heard another faint S2S but it didn't sound right. I kept hearing a call sign with two numbers together, but I figured I was hearing an H as a 5. But no, after a few repeats it was definitely S57S. As it turns out he is in Slovenia! This is on 10 watts. Crazy. It made my day. This was my operating position. The blue in the top is the Pacific Ocean.
