KH2/N2NL Guam on 80m

I usually don't write about a contact unless it is a new DXCC or noteworthy in some fashion.  At 7880 miles. this is my furthest contact on 80m.  The band was unbelievably quiet and the DX was about S5.  He had few takers at first and after my contact the pileup got bigger.  He was a good op working the pileup simplex.

The next day he was strong again and was able to work him with 5 watts.

His transmit antennas are all on the edge of a steep drop off as shown in the photo below.  He has an extensive beverage antenna system
