Cool, Dave. I need to check out some of the 10m repeaters when the conditions are good. I was on 10m sideband. Just got the radio in the truck this past weekend, and I was so pumped to actually be talking to someone that far away that I didn't note the frequency. RST was probably 3x4 or 3x5, and was a little tough to copy, but we did exchange and acknowledge call signs correctly with phonetics. I also talked to a guy in Belgium on 20m on the way to lunch and got a 5x7 received report, and he was 5x5-5x7. All in all it was pretty fun on day one
