Yes, unfortunately I had to make concessions. Time was running and - at least on TI-360 - room was limited.
Even though I would have loved to greet a larger number of friends on the air I couldn’t squeeze in an activation on shortwave.
Hope to cu next time! 73,
Hello Roman @DL3TU. Nice pictures, thanks for the report Also a quick and short SOTA activation only with handheld radio can be remembered - as you notice. Glad you had the minimum 4 QSOs together and also for the S2S QSOs you had.
