First ever SV to SV 136KHz (LF) qso.

Saturday 10 Aug, 2013 at 15.00z me and Manolis SV3DVO we had the first ever LF qso on 136 KHz with QRB 95 KM - (KM07>KM08).
The qso made in cross mode at the same QRG because my set-up has not the capability to TX audio, but only CW (QRSS) and Opera.
Manolis, SV3DVO has a completely home made transverter from 10MHz to 136 KHz with about 25 W output on dummy load.
SV3DVO's 136 KHz transverter.
SV3DVO's antenna Marconi "T" type. Consist of 4 X 18m parallel wires with 9,00m vertical wire, attached to loading coil, variometer etc.
TNX Manolis for the help and nice SV, 1st QSO in  LF band (136KHz).
During the qso I was TXing in QRSS-3 with YUMA TX136 transmitter running 40w, captured by SV3DVO with spectran and RXing in JT-9 program by K1JT.
My antenna is also Marconi "T" type with 3X28m parallel wires and 40m vertical, installed between 2 HF towers.
Latter on we had nice copy between us also in other modes like normal CW, WSPR, Opera-8 and Opera-32, PSK31, JT9.
My QRSS-3 signal received on SV3DVO receiver.
TNX ,73
