I Think I Made Contact With Saudi Arabia - HZ1BL
I think I made contact with HZ1BL in Saudi Arabia. I have to say "I think" because the signal was low and there was a large pileup. We were on 17m using SSB. I couldn't tell if he got my call correct or not and then he moved on. That would be a great contact of 7,200+ miles. I'd be excited to log that on any band, but seems rare for 17m.
I've still not received a confirmation on QRZ, eQSL, LoTW, or HRDlog. I'm hoping that he heard my call correct. If not, maybe I'll get another chance once I get my triband beam put up.
