Worked New Zealand QRP - 15 Yr Old YL - ZL4YL
Well this was a neat surprise. A very good fisted young lady from down under -8800 miles. At first I thought it was long path since my beam was pointed northeast. Then I realized I was not on the beam and on the 30m Delta loop on 15m. One more contact for DX Marathon. A better photo of Xenia below. Xenia is very talented - top shelf - licensed just over a year (when she was 14) and has worked 204 DXCC. She was the leading contender from Oceania in the SO HP 10m Contest. Her father is ZL2IO, her mom is ZL2YL, and she has a sister who is also a ham ZL2GQ. I am going to get her QSL card. She is 99% CW - made 6000 contacts already. She blows a lot of people away.
