Today 19th May, 2008 (Monday) was an eventful day as I was heard for the first time very briefly on 50.110 SSB in W7. Here is a copy of the chat room transcript which the W7 Stations and some JA Stations had. By the time I was notified by email to join the chat room, everyone had gone QRT. Even though a solid QSO was not established it was indeed good to know that my signals were finding their way Statside (A2, K1, Flux: 72). I am hopeful that a QSO will materialize soon.

Han Higasa, JE1BMJ wrote to me today by eamil about his thoughts on the marginal opening that we experienced -
"I have had a great attention on the SSSP, which is a propagation toward Ws and EUs on around the summer solstice. The SSSP will occur on every years, end of May to end of July, so it is a little earlier than usual, but it is pleasure to know such an early openings. The detail of the SSSP is on theweb:
