N4RXV came in with a good 5-7 in Costa Rica at my S311 receiver yesterday evening. But its counter station I could not hear, After his QSO was finished, the signal had dropped to a S2, so with my small wire (18 m, N-W and 10 feet high) and 50Watts, no way. I tried but he didn't hear me.
Hopefully I have a much better antenna in a week or so.

Waiting for a CR call, I use TI7/EA7KAF. I can't use my dutch call PA0NVD because CR does not have an agreement with the Netherlands, so I use my Spanish call.
Joe , N4RXV did hear me yesterday, so we made a QSO. Quite unbelievable with the 18 meters L wire 10 feet above the ground and N-S and only 50 Watts.
I hope to have a dipole for 40  next week That should make a difference

Great contact. Glad to see this happening on 40 meters!
