Certainly I used my remote system for the LF QSO across the North Atlantic.
I am not stupid enough to tie an additonal arm behind my back when I have
such a facility I have built available to me.

Mal, if we were the two last amateurs in the world, I would never hear your
signal, not if you were parked on my front dock with a megawatt of spark, I
would never hear or acknowledge your signal. I promise you I will never
call you on the air, never. There are very few things I will say that I
would never do, not under any circumstances, never, but QSO you would be one
of the things I can safely say I would never do. Have complete faith in
this Mal, you can take it to the bank - NEVER.
This has been a long time coming Mal, now you have it officially - NEVER.
NICE REPLY - Its just that a proper qso to me means door to door on the
appropriate band, in this case LF 136 khz and not via vhf/uhf links, repeaters
etc, also a qso must take place at one session and not in bits and pieces over
several days or weeks or years.
I am glad you have clarified your position otherwise had I worked you I would
have been disappointed to find that you used various vhf/uhf routes and I would
not CLAIM a qso.
Are there any other radio amateurs in Canada or do you have a friend that I
could work ???
