Two more for good measure

I managed to work W1AW/7 on two bands tonight via CW, one on 30 meters, and the other on 20 meters.

In both cases, the ops were running split, and thanks to the panadapter, I was able to zero in on where the stations were listening and insert my call right into the pocket.

Had some difficulty on 30 meters, as my antenna doesn’t really like that band and the best I could manage was a 2:1 SWR. It took me many tries, but he came back to me, with a somewhat garbled version of my call. I resent twice and he pulled out what appeared to be a perfect copy.

Over on 20 meters, it only took me about five calls and he grabbed me, perfect copy on my callsign on the first shot. Hopefully that wraps up Idaho for now. I may still try to work a few stations in the Idaho QSO Party this weekend though.
