I tuned around 40M and heard a steady but quiet signal on 7001. It was ZS1JX just finishing a QSO and someone called him, so I rotated by SteppIR 40m dipole towards South Africa and gave a call when he finished and got "WA5?" right away at 80W from my K3. Peter answered and gave me 459 QSB but seemed to copy his 579 and my name and QTH OK. This is my first CW Africa contact, and first on 40m (though I managed a JT65a contact once on 20m with ZS6WAB.).
