I finally set up an antenna and the rig last night. The band was quite empty while the propagation seemed to be ideal. I heard Puerto Rico very well on 20m but they apparently couldn’t hear me. As I later realized, my power was nearly QRP and the antenna location is far from ideal. However, after adding a bit more load to the finals, at around 1am I managed to establish a QSO with IZ4BFF from Italy and that was my first DX QSO ever!
