Awesome By Any Standard

This not something that I usually look for on the Internet but someone on Google+ shared this so I watched it.  Even for someone like me that is not really into this sort of thing has to give this guy some credit.  He is clearly very good  and has put many hours into learning his skill.  Make the video full screen and watch it on 1080p to get the full impact of just how good this guy is.

LY37LY Lithuania

Last night around midnight I was listening to 20 meters when I stumbled on LY37LY in Lithuania.  I was using a Kenwood TS-2000 with a GAP Titan DX antenna at 100 watts.  Just for the heck of it, I threw out my call sign knowing he would not hear me and he answered me back.  That is the first Lithuanian contact ever.  I went to bed a little excited last night after knowing this antenna was capable of reaching that far.
