G3020 has done it again: Sydney to Guadeloupe Island via long path

I was chasing 9J2HN on 30m this morning. No luck - the European pileup is just impossible to break. The opening to Africa is short- the signal peaked in just a few minutes... there is always next time... Slightly disappointed I've moved up and called CQ. And WOW my call was answered by no other but TO6D from Guadeloupe Island, via long path! This has to be at least 20,000 Km.

G3020, vertical antenna, 4Watts. Hey -not bad for a bunch of old fashioned through hole components!
