:slightly_smiling_face: thanks for the nice comment @VK3SQ

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 :+1: 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. :muscle: :four_leaf_clover:

See you soon again in a QSO.
