I don’t think this station is legit.
No QRZ.COM, Buckmaster, etc., etc., listing for this callsign. No QSL card images, no links to someone’s online log – zilch.
Historical spots from DXsummit.fi say:
" Yeah, he had an astounding signal …”
Given the current propagation, way too good to be true. Someone’s pulling your leg.
Likely what us DXers call a “Slim” – link below is the likely story of the origin of the term “Slim”.
I worked him just a few days ago. Yeah, he had an astounding signal when I worked him as well. But he was hearing my 45 watts just fine, so I think he must have a killer antenna. Or both, I suppose.
