That's what the 49'ers yelled when they struck gold in California - wasn't it?
I struck gold in California tonight by working K6JSS/6 - Cam N6GA on 15 Meters of all bands. Who would have thought that 15 Meters would have been the money band to California at close to 8:30 PM local time? But Cam bore with me and we got the QSO accomplished. I got a 529 and sent a 549. Not strong signals at the time; but as I sit here typing this, Cam's QRP signal is getting increasingly louder. He's almost a good 579 when the QSB isn't affecting him. 15 Meters at this time of day with such a lousy sunspot cycle! If we were having a superb cycle, this wouldn't have struck me as odd. But with the less than great propagation we've been having - I am surprised to say the least.
And speaking of accomplished - Cam is the editor/writer of the QRP column for CQ Magazine - double treat to have worked a "QRP Celebrity".
This QSO went a long way towards making my day, that's for sure!
