Got up early this morning to take advantage of the warm front that is passing through before the remnants of storm Eleanor hit us. It was a good idea for several reasons, firstly, it was another mild sunny morning:
I had to bring my own furniture this time:
You can see my, as yet, unfinished flight deck on the stool. The paddle slid round a bit, so sorry for the occasional QRD (that’s my excuse anyway). The stool was a God-send, because with 79 QSOs in total I was hard at it for almost 2 hours:
I have just discovered my first 2 New Years resolutions: buy a Ground Chair from SOTABEAMS; finish my flight deck asap. Thanks to all the chasers who came back to me, some of whom had to wait very patiently for their 2 points, it must be said. I also got ZL1BYZ in the log today, which is my best SOTA DX so far. There was also a nice 10pt S2S with F/PA0SKP/P. It just goes to show, if you keep at it, the DX comes eventually. The sky is darkening ominously as I write this, but tomorrow and the day after look fairly good, so I’ll probably get round to OE/ST-290 Hohe Rannach and OE/ST-484 Eggenberg before it’s back to work.
