Yesterday was my lucky day. I was once again on my favorite mountain Hammersteinshöhe, DM / NS-163.
That was my 82nd time out of 94 activities here. No wonder that Bill, G4WSB once jokingly asked me whether I would like to build a hut there. (Well, the hut is there, of course not built by me.)
Surprisingly, Paul DL6FBK had announced himself, but it wasn’t clear.
After an SMS sked with Lars, I dared to go on the 40m band for the first time in cw, but didn’t send a spot. Suddenly, a surprising number of known calls, including an S2S with Marcel, DM3FAM. In retrospect, I know that I triggered the automatic cw spot algorithm.
To my great joy, Paul stood in front of me and was able to take over from me.
We only knew each other from qso and got along well straight away.
A good day!
