As they say, OMG! I heard South Africa on 20 meters this morning from the car. A bit of QSB on his signal, but at times he was S7 on my rig. South Africa is just about exactly half way around the world from Southern California. I see on QRZ.com that Volker has a fairly simple arrangement, 400 watts into a tri-element antenna up 30 meters. Not bad Volker! You made my day just being able to hear you and you don’t even know.
