5W0M  ... Talofa ... Afio mai !
from Le Lagoto on Savaii in the northern part of the island - grid AH36TN

This fineDX-pedition is over now. 
Thanks guys for the  30 and 20m QSO.

Also the band police tuners and deliberate QRIdiots  must be complete satisfied by now....

The location of Western Samoa is special,  the difficulty is not the distance it is not the farest point from here. It is easier to contact VK1,2,3,7 ZL   at 16500-18500km from here but it is the path.
From my QTH it is straight over the northpole. That should explane the very weak signals.Why it was much easier  just about 500km south is puzzlingme.  For one or another reason it is easier to get over the north pole from  Munich or Milano or anywhere  just a tiny bit south in relation to the total distance?
