I recently built and tested a new lightweight HF antenna. It's an endfed for the 10, 20 and 40 meters amateur bands (28 MHz, 14 MHz and 7 MHz). With my current Novice license I don't have a lot of access to the 40 meter amateur band, only 7.050 MHz to 7.100 MHz. But during testing station DL65DARC was active and heard my reply and confirmed it via eQSL. I had earlier contacts on 40 meter (while testing the same antenna) but this is the first confirmed one.
