A short but rewarding time on 30m last evening.

I went into the radio room last evening around 2130 UTC to have a listen as to what was going on. I found myself on 30m and noticed there was a few CW signal but really not all that much action. I spun the VFO down to the first signal at 10.110.0. It was EA6Y from Balearic Island located in the Mediterain Sea and on his QRZ page there are some amazing pictures of his surroundings. It was a very fast CW QSO with RST and TU (thank you) I then spotted him on DX Summit . He seemed to be calling CQ for some time before any takers. His CW signal was clean and crisp into Atlantic Canada and my 100 watts made it without issue.
I then moved onto the next CW signal on the waterfall of my Icom 7610 and 4O4T from Montenegro Lou's signal was very crip as well and once again my 100 watts had no issue making the trip to Montenegro. At 2200 UTC the band seemed to drop it's DX adventures and it was time to move on to things such as reading my many amateur radio periodicals a rewarding evening on the radio none the less.
