Hi Kamel, I was very pleased to work you on 17m cw. My station id a Kenwood TS590 sg and an Ameritron AL 811 at 300 watts. My modest antenna is an 80' long end fed wire hung in some trees about 15 ft.high. I hope to get your qsl and hopefully a QRZ or lots confirmation. I need that for awards. It was great receiving your email. Ron W9GOL Port St Lucie, Florida

Tnx for FB QSO on 17m CW. Conditions were good, but your signal was exceptionally loud. I use an Elecraft K3 with an Ameriton amp running about 1 kW to a SteppIR DB-18E with 3 elements on 17m. It's up 95'. Hope to cuagn soon. Vy 73, Joe

Thanks for my ATNO and a second on 17 meters CW. My station is very modest. Yeasu FT-857D with no amplifier into a home made EFHW in my tree, mostly vertical. Hope to hear you as my ATNO on SSB someday. 73.

Kamal, thank you for your email. Yes I enjoyed our QSO too. I operate remote using antennas and rigs from Remote Ham They have really good sites all over the US, mainly on the East and West coast. The station I was operating today was their Blueberry Hill site in the Hudson River Valley of New York State. The radio and amp there are Flex equipment to a GXP 11-5 yagi. I was QRO legal limit. 80 feet up. I used to live in a condominium which did not allow any antennas at all so I got into remote operation for most DX. I am now in a new home with much less restrictions but must negotiate antenna ideas with my XYL. I will send you my QSL card. Thanks for your email, John Stockman, KC2THY

Thanks for the QSO and email. I now see that I should not send a QSL via the postal system. I checked my log and we have several other QSOs on CW, SSB and FT8. 73!

Thanks for the FT8 connection on 30m. My wire antenna and 90 watts came through. I gave up the Superbowl game to check out 30m and didn't even know where you were. Thanks again!

Hello Kamal. It has been a lot of fun working you on FT8. My friends and I really enjoy chasing your signal on the bands. We all hope to work you on 40 meters soon on your beautiful Quad antenna. 73 and I hope you enjoy these great conditions. W9PDS patrick @

Hello Kamal and Happy New Year! I heard your fb signal the day but unfortunately was not able to make (FT8) contact. Maybe another day my friend. I've been a ham for over 65 years with many breaks from the hobby but just recently decided to chase a dxcc.. I have over 3500 qsl cards I'm sure would do the trick but decided to do it the hard way. Hope to add to my QSL list. I thoughly enjoyed your QRZ bio as well the the website. 73 and Blessings to and your lovely family. Dick Hilde

Your new website is very nice, Kamal. Nice to follow up our earlier 30m QSO with a 20m FT8 QSO today. Surprisingly good propagatgion today, with excellent signals. You were solid at R+00 here on FT8. The station here is an Icom 7610, KPA-500 Amp, and wire antenna thru a tuner. Your barefoot 756Pro3 and SteppIR beam are doing a great job into NA.
