Mystery Solved from Paraguay

It was nice to see this card in the electronic mail box this evening! I had mistaken the call for CP6CW and the mystery is now solved. While sitting at a picnic table at the Hurricane Wave Pool Park on November 11th, I distinctly hear the wrong call.  (it happens from time to time)

We’ve worked several times before but this was my first contact with them on 10 meters. Morse Code is such an amazing thing isn’t it? You catch the band open for a few minutes and bounce a signal 4,677 miles into South America. I’m happy to see this confirmation card (ZP6CW) from Paraguay.
