10/07/2019 IW2OBX/P WRONG REF.

Dear Friends,
Today during the short activation on 20 meters band cw, I sent wrong reference I/LO-192,instead of I/LO-129, correctly written on sotawatch. I probably sufferd from long hike and hot wx.
I’m sorry…



Ciao Roberto,
Grazie per il QSO questa matina.
I saw the spot raised by RBNHole with reference I/LO-129 but I heard you sending the I/LO-192, which put me in doubt. That’s why I asked you for the reference when we made our QSO. When you sent again I/LO-192, I assumed that was right and you may had made an error when writing the reference in the alert, which is the information RBNHole takes for the automatic spots, so I sent a spot for you informing of the reference you had just sent twice. I see now what the problem was and I hope my spot will not confuse too many chasers.
Thanks for the clarification. My log has just been corrected.
Ciao e 73,


Hi Guru,
I heard you asked me for confirmation of the reference, but I didn’t pay attention to the sequence of numbers. I was sure that the reference that I wrote on my paper-logbook was correct.
muchas gracias a Ti.

Dear Roberto,
errors sometimes happen!
IK2LEY warned all the italian friends and I confirmed
you were on Mt. Grigna (Grignone as we all call it here).
Please don’t worry and keep on doing your great work!
We all admire your SOTA activity.
