I've worked Senegal before - both QRO and QRP. But when I hear an African nation on the bands, and very loud to boot, I just can't resist! I don't hear very many all that often and I don't have many QSOs with many African nations. It's always a treat to work them. This time the HF9V got me through on 20 Meters. The pileup was not fierce by any means - just a long line of stations to work. I got through about 15 minutes or so after I started trying.
There's lots of DX to be heard on the bands even with less than stellar band conditions. This coming weekend is the CQ WW Prefix Contest. I am tempted to get on the air for a bit using NJ2SP, which is the call for the South Plainfield Amateur Radio Club, for which I am trustee.
Hank N8XX has informed me that there were no NJ2 prefixes worked in the contest last year; so maybe even with QRP power I might command a pileup? It might be fun!
