QRP DXing on 15m CW

With the improved sunspot count yesterday and today 15m has opened up to the Caribbean and to the USA this afternoon. First QSO was 9Y4VU at 1400z then WX3B at 1450. Both were with 5W CW into my 500kHz vertical via the T1 auto-ATU.  I did take a quick look on 10m, but nothing heard hear. Later I took a go at PSK31 and worked RA3GI and US2IR on 15m with around 3W. It is so good to hear the higher HF bands coming back to life again: it has been a long time mostly quiet but the GOOD times are back.
