LZ1ZD loud and clear

Just finished working Bulgarian station LZ1ZD near Sophia on 20 metres USB. What a booming signal! We exchanged 5/9 reports. I’m only running 100 watts here into a Par EF-20 antenna not even 30 feet up with my trusty Icom 756-Pro. This radio gets out. Well, maybe it’s the station that he’s running! A kilowatt and 6 over 6 over 6 antennas. Check.
