Fixing a hole

There is a hole in my tooth. So I have an appointment today with my dentist. Though, it’s a female doctor, I don’t like to go. She has 50 minutes scheduled for fixing the hole. I demand an anesthetic, that’s for sure. It is no small QRP hole. Oh, my…

This is a nice Distance Calculator (thanks Paul M6PCZ) I do have worked a lot of the guys I meet here. But the guys beyond the big pond are on my wish list to work. So is Dick N2UGB on the list. We'll have to bridge a distance of 5698 km or 1193 km/watt at 5 watt. One day we will succeed.

  1. Morning Paul, Good luck at the dentist. I have a lovely, sexy, dentist called Monica from Poland and that makes the experience a lot more enjoyable! However I still find I get very nervous. Bye for now, Adam

  2. @hello Adam, thank you. The girls from Eastern Europe are very pretty, that's for sure. Makes the pain a little bearable. 73 Paul

  4. We will do it one day Paul. Have to find a spot on 30M where there isn't a pile-up (good luck to us!). If my dentist looked like those ladies, I'd drill holes in my own teeth and have them filled every week.

  5. I haven't been to a dentist for ...lets see ..er.. oops, can't be .. 20 years! And I still have all my teeth!

    BTW, I worked Guatemala with only 5 watts :-), and that was using the G7FEK antenna. So I am sure you will do it!

  6. Hallo Paul, succes bij de tandarts. Ik heb er jaren tegen op gekeken. En de laatste jaren is er bij mijn vorige tandarts nogal wat misgegaan. Die fouten werden zelfs bij de kaakchirurg niet opgemerkt. Ondanks dat ik nu onnodig 2 kiezen moet missen is alles goedgekomen, ik heb nu een tandarts uit Irak die zijn vak echt verstaat. Mijn XYL is er assistente dus heb afleiding genoeg. 73, Bas

  10. @Hallo Bas, mijn kies was niet meer te redden. Ik had al twee maanden pijn. Dus die kies is eruit getrokken. Maar goed, de pijn is nu wel weg. 73 Paul

  11. Hello Paul,

    I drove to a 4,000 mountain yesterday but couldn't orient the new 30 meter antenna towards Europe. Worked two station in VERY northern Canada (New Brunswick) with 599 signals. I'll write it up soon on the blog.

    Heard a German station (DL3AO) at 599 +++
    so know it can be done. Just a matter of being in the right place at the right time!

    ps...one of the Canadian stations was also QRP at 5 watts!

  12. @Hello John: indeed it should be possible, I just read that Paul M6PCZ worked a few nice DX on 10 meter. At that moment I just turned off the rig. Aargh... 73 Paul

  13. Hi Paul,

    The TG QSO I had at 5 watt was on 20m at night in July last year using PSK31...
