The Falklands on 15m (VP8LP)

Yesterday I made some QSOs on the 20m, 17m and 15m bands. On this latter band I made a contact with the Falkland Islands (VP8LP) and got a signal report of 54. With a distance of 11,500km, that can be considered real DX, especially for 100w and a vertical antenna.
It was a quick QSO but I heard Bob (VP8LP) talking about the weather with some Dansh colleague (5P5BK), and he said it was snowing there in the Falklands.
