Greek Hamfest

Last Sunday the Greek hamfest took place in Athens. Organized by RAAG in a new place this year, it left us generally good impressions. We met there lot of hams all around the country. Eyeball qso with SV1GH, SV1BLD,SV2JT, SV3XO, SV3HK, SV3KH, SV3ALA, SV2DCD, SV9ANK, SV9GPV, SV9GPJ and many others. Nice place, nice people, nice time. Four hams from Zante Island travel to Athens to join this event: SV8RX, SV8KOM, SV8AXZ and SV8RV. We came back with cheerful memories and some goods we found there. Next hamfest I visit it will be a very big one: the European Hamfest in Friedrichshafen. Keep tuned.

Traveling blogs

Traveling blogs belong to another thematic topic. I always liked those who were traveling around the world, knowing new places as well people and their cultures. Recently, bloging gave to them a great means to write and let us know their experiences. Probably there are many blogs of this type. I have already given you the link of godimitris. Recently I spotted another similar one ( In both of them the heroes are Greeks, but the stories are written in several languages. Except the texts with their adventures there are also plenty of photos and videos from many exotic places they are visiting. All of them live, freezing the facts and publishing them in the same time as they are living them. I spend a lot of time reading all this stuff, imaging that I am a member of their crew. I wish also they had a radio with them, so we could have some contacts in our way.
