Great Saturday for QRP DX Marathon - S9YY, ZD7BG, E74A
The K2 was in full QRP attire without the PA deck. The bands have been crappy all morning, the stations I need are out there but not strong enough to be workable QRP. Things changed for the better in the afternoon as I was able to work S9YY Sao Tome and Principe Islands in a pileup on both 12m and 17m. S9 was also a new zone so a double bonus.Thanks for digging me out - op for the S9 station. ZD7BG was all alone with no pileup on 20m and he was able to answer me right away in response to his CQ. E74A was an addition from late last night.
