Worked Kuwait - 9K2HS
This morning, the bands were in excellent shape. I made many enjoyable contacts. One that was very special to me was Hamed, 9K2HS in Kuwait. I had never worked Kuwait before. I saw Hamed spotted on the DX cluster so I tuned over. I didn't want to tune up the amp on 15m, but I did dial my Yagi in on him to the best of my ability. I gave him a call with just 100w (phone) and to my surprise, he picked me up and returned a RST of 59+. Hamed was also 59+ and a very pleasant operator. At over 7,000 miles away, I was glad to finally get Kuwait in the log!
Kuwait is a country in Western Asia. Situated in the northern edge of Eastern Arabia at the tip of the Persian Gulf, it shares borders with Iraq and Saudi Arabia.
