VP8PJ, South Orkney confirmed

Today I received LOTW confirmation of my initial 20M FT8 contact with VP8PJ, South Orkney Island. This is my #311 country (mixed). Since this initial 20M contact, I have worked VP8PJ on 17M and 40M FT8 as well as 30M RTTY.  I’m waiting confirmation on these contacts. Log uploads are difficult from the island because the terrain blocks satellite access. The team has to travel to the Braveheart ship to upload logs.

The 40M and 30M contacts are particularly gratifying since I’m using a temporary end-fed wire and ~100 watts. I’m limited to this temporary antenna because I’m awaiting some tree removal to get my OCF dipole backup!
