The mornings before 1W was enough for ZL1JA and ZL2RF

this evening could catch 3D2T at 30m CW  and 
E51NOU  South Cook ZK1  In a big W-pile on 28.009.9 CW
E51NOU Bill van der Heide was waiting for his flight to North Cook. I was copied as PA0OPA   A miss-copy  that happens ofther with my 1 letter suffix.
I had that with TL0CW Rudi on 80m CW   firts he got my call correct. But then he added an extra letter to it..
And to correct an extra letter  is difficult in CW with low signals and high QRM.

Yes, you are right about my miscopy. I will correct my log. You were also very weak and of course there was the usual qrm, but I should have realized it was you.
My flight to N Cook has been delayed until the end of the week. Until then I will be in S Cook and signing E51NOU. I will have a different callsign for N Cook.

I send Bill this text, I'm hoping  for some activity from exotic locations ...

One question
would you be interested in running WSPR beacon from your exotic QTH?
When  your radio is idle ?  you could run 1 or 5W WSPR 28MHz?
You would be almost the only one there in the whole Pacific except for KH6 there is noone!

If you can run digimodes like rtty /psk with your rig and PC  it is very simple to setup
and the results are amazing!

f.i. today  I reduced 28MHz to 200mW still VK7AB copied my signal

WSPR is  a full automatic receive / transmit system  developed by  Jim Taylor K1JT
genius!   low power vy small bandwidth  200 cycles for all  stations on 28MHz
and it works while you can not be in the shack /home  or have something else to do..
Still  you can use your equipment

it is worth trying
