EA6UN (Don't send $3, Mallorca, Balearic Islands, Spain) from Lake Ontario, New York on my KX1 and PAC-12

qrv lake ontario
I set up the KX1 and Pac-12 on a pier in Webster, NY in lake Ontario about 100m off the shore, among some fisherman. I tried to make my Pac-12 look like a fising rod until I put it up. I listened a bit and heard EA6UN Jurek in Mallorca, Balearic Islands, Spain, calling CQ on 14.034. He answered someone else but then called QRZ QRP WA5 for me an gave me a 569 with QSB. He wanted to know my power (4W) and said the Elecraft KX1 was doing FB. He was running 100W into a beam.

So for me that was Grid FN13 to Grid KM71 which is 9200KM or 5,750 miles, so at 4W that's 1437.5 miles/watt or 2300 km/watt! So I am now eligible for the 1000 mi/watt club.

QSL via EC6TK (qrz.com confirms and gives more directions).

Update: I sent the $3 but never got the QSL. Don't make my mistake.
