This evening I tried some amateur radio contacts in the 10 meter band in PSK31 mode. And I got lucky, there were openings to North America, which was a new country for me and new distances!

I made psk31 contacts with KR4UA at a distance of 7069 kilometer, PA3FJE at a distance of 17 kilometer and W1AW/4 in North Carolina in the USA at a distance of 5731 kilometer. W1AW is the callsign of the US Amateur Radio Relay League which is currently 'on tour' of the US to celebrate the 100 years of the ARRL.

Update 2014-09-20: Some more 10 meter PSK31 contacts on 18 September and 20 September, including IK3WHZ and IU3BSY in Italy and RA9FHM in Asiatic Russia at a distance of 3244 kilometer. And a very enthusiast S52UF in Slovenia. This contact with Slovenia was also spotted by shortwave listener NL 13562.

And KR4UA reported not having me in the logs so that contact and distance is unconfirmed.
