Day 7 February QSO Challenge

Today's QSO was with GM4PPT - Dick from Ayrshire Scotland. GM4PPT is what I consider as a radio pal as I have worked Dick many times from my other shack over the years with lots of great rag chewing taking place on 144 SSB.
I worked GM4PPT at 20.52 utc on 144.336MHz (2 Meter band) during tonight's RSGB 144MHz UKAC. Dick - GM4PPT was a 5/1 signal at my end (IO93CU).
I received a 5/2 signal report and serial no back from GM4PPT in IO74SK.

For the Day 7 February QSO challenge, I was using my YAESU FT-847 with 50W into my 5 Element Cushcraft Yagi.

GM4PPT runs an Icom IC910X into 2 x 12 Element M2 stacked Yagis and a Dressler D200s Amplifier.
The total distance between our stations is 154 miles which on 144MHz ticks the box that says DX.
