Last time I worked AO-10 was Nov/Dec 2001 - QSL cards from OM5CM and F6BEG. Both CW QSOs.

Best QSO/QSLs on AO-40. Found TA1D calling CQ(SSB) at 8 degrees with  elevation decreasing fast. Called him on CW and he replied on CW. My only Turkey QSL.

QSO/QSL with 4Z1WS

Multitude of QSO/QSLs from Australia, New Zealand, and many many from Japan. 

Rare ones that were 3AM sleep interrupters.

On a good day, it was Europe in the AM, North/South American mid day and Japan, Australia etc. in the PM.

Boy it was fun. Ran 4X20 turn helixs on 2.4 GHz, 11 turn helix on 435, and FT-847.
