Worked a couple of DX on 10m today, band was pounding into Edmonton. The most unique station was FO4BM on the Isle of moorea. Also made my first 10m FM simplex contacts, best one was AK4FL/Mobile in Columbus Ohio. He was putting out 10w, S7 at my end, I was full scale on his. My last contact befor shutting down the club was Al, ZL1BD. Nice couple of hours of DXing made some others but nothing that was a new country for me

I've deleted a lot of off-topic chatter. The topic for this thread is "Who did you work today?" Please stay on-topic by only discussing which distant amateur stations you have worked. Thank you.

Although a couple of mine were off topic, thank you for the clean up. I am really enjoying this thread and all the ex people are working... Mostly on 10m it seems.

I had hamsex for an hour and a half or so today.
I only had three contacts using my QRP rig: two guys with the Mississippi QSO party on 20 meters and a Cuban station on 10m.
I tried and tried to work the better DX on 10 coming in from Brazil, Honduras and Uruguay but no dice. I still had fun, though.

Lottsa DX heard tonight due to a ARRL Contest. I wish I'd have got on the radio earlier in the day to see what the higher bands looked like. This evening on 20 & 40m, I heard Uraguay, Chile, Argentina, Barbados, Puerto Rico, Brazil, Cuba & maybe some others.I worked only one station I think in Argentina. I was QRP.

I'd forgotten there was a contest forum but my other posts were in this DX thread so I'll follow up here:

This weekend I worked 16 countries in the ARRL DX contest. I was QRP and as mentioned elsewhere here on the boards, my antenna is literally some hokey Cat5 wires strung up in my attic with a total width of about 30-35 ft. My rig is a bone stock Yaesu FT-817ND with a LDG Z-817 ATU and I'm running soley on SLA battery power. This radio has a maximum output of 5 watts. I give my call with a /qrp and I feel honored with the patience and slowdown that most DX stations give me. The high speed, high stress busy contest environment is difficult in any case and my low power station makes those QSO's particularly rewarding.

Anyway, my point is that the radio magic is alive and well and you don't need a fancy kilobuck$ station to get the good stuff. I'd also like to give a shoutout to those who listen for, pick out and take a minute to lean in and make that effort to copy the qrp stations, even when I'm shouting my call into the mic like 14 times .
I logged the following DX stations from my Chicago QTH:

LP1H - Argentina - 14.304
VP2EC - Anguilla - 28.465
6Y1V - Jamaica - 28.439.5
HI3K - Dominican Repub - 28.487
HI3TT - DR - 28.490
HI3TEJ - DR - 21.419
YV5KG - Venezuela - 21.433
YW4D - Venezuala - 14.254.25
TG7/N6HD - Guatemala - 28.505
CO2GG - Cuba - 21.384
CO6LC - Cuba - 14.229
C6ANM - Bahamas - 14.343
EF8R - Canary Islands - 14.332
CR3L - Madeira Islands - 14.322.5
9Y4W - Trinidad/Tobago - 14.297.25
TI8M - Costa Rica - 14.267
PT2CM - Brazil - 14.264.75
PT5T - Brazil - 14.259
HK1T - Colombia - 14.262
NP2B - Puerto Rico - 21.360
KP2MM - PR - 21.350
P40L - Aruba - 21.352.75

Great work, I managed Belize on Sunday, not in the contest, but heard the unusual call sign and made a point to try and work him. I am always looking to work unusual calls.
