Little pistol goal: continent-shooting afternoon :)

I had a few hours for my radio hobby (again). I found that there were good conditions on 15m, so I chose to set a personal goal: trying to get QSO with as many continents as possible this afternoon. The result: 5 continents in 3 hours. As the log shows, I tried for over an hour to get africa in the vanishing conditions...finally succeeded also there, yes!
Yes, the mode was PSK31. Normally the best chances to get many dx contacts is with PSK. I like CW also, but PSK is obviously more popular nowadays, so it made it my choice in this brave quest :) SSB is also fun, but considerably trickier to get DX QSOs with 50-100 watts and dipole antenna.
