No 60 m in France

Sorry Armin to spot this afternoon on you 60m activation ! It’s not allowed in france on your activity in FL/VO-101 !
we are the last wheel of the cart in terms of frequencies for 60m and 4m

I understand the French authority responding to criticism, suggested that radio amateurs be patient by quoting from a famous French poem:
“Patience et longueur de temps. Font plus que force ni que rage.”

uiuiuiuiui - I should have informed myself better. :flushed:

Then I have to delete the only 60m contact … too bad for Jan - SORRY

Today was a exhausting day: …blocked roads (but only from one side: :face_with_raised_eyebrow:) … muddy paths … contest … few contacts…
and now that

but i had a sun afternoon - anyway :sunglasses:

France is not the last. Australia has no 60 m allocation. It is in the ACMA plan but no date has been set for implementation. Very low on the priorities list as it isn’t a money earner. ZL has limited access on a trial basis. Hopefully the outcome will be positive and that may help us.

A Yellow Jacket (Vespula or Dolichovespula) is called the European Wasp in VK. Nasty pests with a painful sting, fatal if you get a lot of stings. They thrive in our climate. I would not wear one by choice. :frowning_face:
