DJ1ZB: "I have got RST 599 using 75 Watts transmitter power (QTH JN68GN), and after I have heard OK1FIG in Test with DJ2LF (QTH nr Erlangen) who decreased his power down to 10/5/3 watts and still could keep the contact - after this I decided to call OK1FIG once more, but with my small TBA 810 LF PA (designed merely for measurements on my lf antenna) with just 3 watts output.

G3NYK: "lots of activity stirred up by Petr and lots of weak traces on the screen I couldn't hear...... quite a weekend. Well done Petr, activity like this does help to spread the message and bring in new blood."

G3XDV: "OK1FIG and OK1ARN were 599 all weekend....Called many times but no response at all....Anyway, it all generated lots of interest in central Eu so well done Petr. Also congratulations on the transatlantic QSO, a new record. ..."

YO2IS: "Hello Petr, first of all congrats for your excelent LF expedition and the new ODX with Canada. Was happy to hear your signal here in my poor downtown location in Timisoara (KN05ps).

DF6NM: "...congratulations on the weekend's fruits! Very nice work indeed, and a dx record well-earned by your wonderful signal."

EB2DZB: "My QTH is in ARANO near to San Sebastian (IN93be) and the last saturday 23 I recived in 137 Khz a CQ form your father OK1ARN at 20:10 UTC."

DL1VDL (HF-Manager DARC): "Congratulation to the transatlantic world record on longwave on behalf of the DARC HF-Committee !! Your QSO with ve1zj is a big step forward and all longwave experimentors are very proud of you.
