2016-04-17 New country in amateur radio contacts: Brasil
With lots of my fellow amateurs making contacts all over north and south america this should not be hard but while I have heard amateurs from south america I haven't been able to make any contacts south of Puerto Rico up until today. I saw PT7DX active on 20meter PSK31 and tried to answer him a few times. On the third try it worked and we had a short contact in which I thanked him for the new country. The fun part is that I saw KB6NU in the US complain about HF propagation around the same time.
