F/AM-615 27/03/2022

Hi All,

Yesterday we were out with XYL Christine and little Louna to enjoy this beautiful Sunday outdoors.
To get off to a good start, you need to have calories, so detour to the small village of Viens (Come on in English) to the restaurant “le petit jardin”. A rush of fish à la rouille in its broth and small vegetables for her, for me a deer stew with its potato gratin and small vegetables :crazy_face:

Activation

My intention was to take advantage of this current good HF propagation to contact many DX… Great disappointment despite good RBN reports :dizzy_face:
Rather judge yourself !

17m Still a bit early :

I missed you on Sunday, strange not to see your call sign in my log!

I also thought conditions on HF were not good. Lots of SSB contest stations running kW and big antennas but not too many chasers for my QRP signal.

Food looks fabulous.

Sorry Andy I started my activation when you finished yours!
If I had taken the sandwich option we could have had a QSO :wink:

Hi Éric,

This is a very important argument for the future dilemmas of “whether to move to France or not …” :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
