Another new one

Yesterday evening  I managed to work ZC4A on 40m CW.  I have been chasing this for a while and signals from Cyprus have not been good on most bands and pile-ups are big – this is one of the rarely activated European entities.  The pile-up was about 2KHz wide rather that the usual 3-4KHz and signals were quite strong so I decided that I was going to stick with it until I got them.  It took around 45 minutes moving around quite frequently trying to keep in an empty space on the waterfall!  And they were confirmed last night on LOTW which is great.  One thing that I noticed was the high level of dupe QSOs that they were rejecting – once is enough to work a dxpedition on any slot – it is only exchanging a 59 or 5NN after all and there are plenty of smaller stations that are being denied a chance because of it.
