This weekend I worked only one station on 80m SSB with PA1HR (Hans Remeeus). He lives 140 km from my QTH. Not bad with an end fed antenna which is only suitable for 40-20-10m. But with the MFJ 925 tuner I can make the antenna resonant for other bands, of course with reduces efficiency; especially for 80 and even 160 meter.
I read at QRZ.com that Hans Remeeus was Wireless Operator (later OIC) at the Coastal Station Scheveningen Radio PCH. That Coastal station was only 1 mile from QTH in IJmuiden. One day in 1976 I got a phone call from the Coastal Station. I was interfering their frequency when I was busy with CW on 20 meter. Oh Boy. When I visited Scheveningen Radio PCH they gave me compliments about CW skills. So they offered me a part time job during vacation time. But I got a busy job myself so I did not accept that offer. I was flattered, you can understand, just because I was using an electronic keyer that time. ;-)
