One of my favourite contacts I have made. I was working a homebrew 1/2" copper jpole made from plumbing pipe from under my Grandmothers house. I got lucky with this contact as doppler shift was never taken into consideration from my lack of experience. It was of course just a call swap very quick contact. There were many stations attempting to make contact all at the same time. A real pileup.
