New Ones for QRP DX Marathon

Oct 26 Update

Just added Anguilla VP2EGR at 1651 on 15m CW

Oct 25 Update

I have never worked an entity this high up on the most wanted list till now - TL0A - Central African Republic which is #16 on the most wanted list.  I have been trying to work him for better than a half hour tail ending every other station he worked and the magic finally happened.   I had just worked Ghana 9G5AM just before - and I thought surely - propagation is in my favor.

This is especially rewarding with all my station woes.  My antenna rotor bit the dust and I have to turn the yagi by the "armstrong" method currently pointed 90 degrees towards Africa.
