A few days left

The fall is coming and we prepare to move to our winter QTH. This is sad. We will really miss the cottage. Writing these lines it occurred to me that I have never show you my little shack here.


Main transceiver is TS-480HX. Not too many Dx-ing during summer but a lot of rag chewing.This year I had my best score in 6m though.  I worked 61 countries instead of 52 and 42 previous years. Not to forget to add a snap showing me and SV3SJ enjoying summer delights.


Now he he will be in France already. Have a nice winter Nick.

As the summer goes by…


Although summer is going to end, we are happy. No much radio activity must be said as the sun got to sleep again. It is a 38 spotless day streak as I am writing these lines. Even though I can hear KH7XS every morning in my wires. On the other hand we have many good friends on the island. SV2HJQ, SV2AGW and SV2DCD among them. As George and Leo usually come the second fortnight of August, they herald the come of fall. Actually we had some rain just to confirm the fact.


SV3SJ is expected too and probably SV1GH if things go right. There is nothing better than amateur friendship! I am still living in the cottage enjoying quietness and nature. Well… and beers of course. The weather is nice most of the time, a little bit strange but acceptable.

DSC_0241 By the way the photos have taken with my new Nikon D5000. To be honest I have not played yet a lot with my new toy. But the snaps I took, just as a beginner, are very satisfactory.
