a good day
« on: April 14, 2016, 09:59:29 UTC »
Yesterday, i received a lot of qsl from my manager. Most of them came from europe. But my attention was attracted by an indicatif JA4FKX... I though for an error and i consulted  my logbook (qrz.com) and found in 2014 year PA4FKX the same day the same time with a weak RST 449/459 with name op. NAN.
I understood that i had replaced F by P (i'm a poor telegraphist...) and it was my first cw/qrp contact with Japan (with an flex 1500 , 5 w , and FD3)....
It was really a good day.... !

An easy mistake to make Pierre! There is only a . (dit) / - (dah) difference.
In the CQWW CW contest I logged a VK4 and was very pleased with the DX contact, but have now discovered that it was a 4K4 :-(
C'est la vie !!
