# Pile-Up on Me

Finally, an evening without any significant QRN on 40! I was doing pretty well, working UA9O, UN9, 4L1, when suddenly there started to be a small pile-up on me.

In fact, already 4L1MA was picled out from a pile-up. Then I worked IK7SLT whereafter again a pile-up. I don’t know how it happened, but I managed to pick out P43JB calling me!!! Yeah, Joop calling me from Aruba. He was rather strong and we exchanged 2×579.

Later around midnight, I was listening to PY station rag-chewing with each other. I didn’t get any of them, however I worked a CO7 and a CO8 station.
