Hello All,

I was quite surprised today to work Neil, ES6DO in Estonia just before 18:00Z on AO-7 mode B.  I was listening to that pass with the hopes of working a few UK stations I heard a few days ago, and was just about to shut the rig down at the end of the pass, when I heard a CW station calling CQ.  At first I though it was an Irish station with an EI prefix, but two dits turned out to be three - ES rather than EI!  With less than one minute to make the contact on that pass, it all worked out with a new grid and new DX in my log, and Neil's first VE QSO.  Many thanks Neil!
