K3WWP:
Didn’t think I was going to make it this month. Had trouble finding the zeroes, B, and 8. Finally after waiting over a week for the 8, I worked EW8DJ just after 0000Z on June 26. Conditions to EU were not as good overall in June as in previous months for whatever reason. However that proves that even with poor conditions, QRP/CW and simple wire antennas will still do the trick. The EW8DJ QSO also made 118 straight days of working some DX. Great fun, now I’m going to see what the July challenge is and get my worksheet ready for it. Thanks again Matt and Ton.

PA7PYR:
Bands 30 and 40m, Power <5w, Yaesu FT 817, Ant. Hy Endfet.
I enjoy the challenge. Worked some calls only 2w with battery pack in the garden.
Tnx Matt and Tom
