That was my first QSO on 30M via the mode called V4Chat. Actually my first attempt was one year ago on March of 2012, but it was really difficult to find out an active station on that rare mode. OM Dezider from Slovak Republic make it happen without having a sked who heared the odd sounding on the band and gave me an answer!!
