The DX Op was loud on 12m 24894 (CW) and I must have just gotten the peak of propagation. Only time will tell if I appear in the DX log - hopefully tomorrow I can confirm.
Well, tomorrow came and I confirmed I was not in the K9W log. I ended up in 5J0R station log. It turned out both were calling on the same frequency and as K9W faded out - 5J0R took over. Well better luck for me next time.
