New Caledonia!

I had 5 minutes of free time this morning...opened the radio and found a a CQ on the 20m band from KF8DD. Responded directly. The immediate response was: "UP UP". OK, this is a pileup. I said sorry ("SRI") and set up the rig to split-frequency mode. I listened to a couple of QSOs and tuned my second VFO near those, and after a few trials he heard me. I had to send my call a few times before he got me correctly. This  was DXCC country number 91 since January 2011. This evening I got the QSL above through

I had to check Wikipedia and Google Earth to remind me where on earth :) New Caledonia is: an exotic island somewhere between Australia and New Zealand.
