1x1el yagi and 60W QSO on 432 MHz EME

We are very happy to have worked MX0CNS, Tom on 20.01.2019 on 432 EME. Tom was runing a dipole and 60W at the dipole. He RXed us at -23 and we RXed him at -29. This was again an amazing QSO with Tom after having worked him in Nov. 2016 with a 2el yagi and 60W. Congrats Tom for your great work on QRPPP EME!
