Made my first ever contact with Asiatic Russia tonight. Alex Sukharev is deep inside Russia, over 5,500 miles from me. This contact was almost right over the north pole, which I understand is a challenge to do at the best of times. My feeble 100 watts into my simple doublet antenna 8 meters off the ground once again surprised me. Very nice to chat with you Alex!
