K1N

Saturday early morning K1N 1817.4   strong! to 589 big signal for 160.
That should be an easy one call QSO..  hahah I did not knew then that I better went back to sleep...

One time responded PA0 but never received my full call then they went on with an Italian.
Hard to understand that with such signal I could not make it.
I used to have a decent 160m signal even with low power and thought it be easy with such signal. Should have known better eorking DXpeditions with the QRP ACOM1000 is very hard..
They will have heavy QRM s9+  I guess
It is like EME working DX-peditions  the path attenuation must be about the same and the QRM does the rest.
after some hours of trying I finally  conclude   it is a mission impossible  for my humble station.
And I better just keep sleeping next time.
