Celebrating my 69th birthday

I turned 69 yesterday and celebrated Guru style by activating EA7/GR-069. A cold and windy but sunny day. Some images:

Ice on the access road.

and also on the walk.

Yes, I should have said thanks for chasing me so often (47 times so far).

I’ve noticed that you have logged our QSO yesterday against the wrong band. It was on 10MHz, not 5MHz.

Felicidades José!
Eres un cazador muy confiable y, por lo general, el primero en recibir mis llamadas en las bandas más altas.
Estaba más feliz con el S2S en tu cumpleaños.
