I was called by a VK station in Perth Australia while testing my 5w rig and hand held 70cm 10 element yagi in my attic! 

Not just once but twice 2 days running via the Oscar 13 satellite. Think it was about 37000 km out in space in its elliptical orbit at the time. This took place in the mid 1990s and was a good solid SSB contact. 

My QTH was IO90LW .... Clanfield just north of Portsmouth UK. Never did get
a QSL card! 

Anybody know who this may have been?
