First Russian stations

Worked my first Russian stations today using my vertical 31′ antenna (on phone; no April 1st joking!):

  • Nikolay RZ9OQ in Siberia (near Novosibirsk, over the North Pole) on 20m (58/55 reports; 0312 UTC),
  • and Sergey RL3AW in Moscow City (European Russia) on 15m (59/55 reports; 1442 UTC)

I am very excited.
