Around 0130Z I set up at the school with the Buddipole on the asphalt and worked K9KLR Nick in Indiana. Nick was 599 with QSB but gave me 449} with QSB. I was running the KX1 at 2.5W and the Buddipole as a vertical. Unfortunately, he lost my signal.

Probably I should have had it on the grass.

A strange thin happened during the QSO that I only just remembered; just before the last exchange, when Nick finished I sent "R R R" and he interrupted me in the middle with "R R R". I paused, heard nothing, and sent "R R R" again, and he interrupted me again. I wasn't sure what was going on and waited a bit more, sent "BK" and continued, and then afterwards Nick signed, saying I had faded out, but called me "Lee" which I had sent during the last. Perhaps it was Long Delayed Echoes?
