Very sorry I had to close down so suddenly yesterday whilst calling on 20M.
Had taken a break in the afternoon and waited for later in the afternoon (0600 4.00pm local) for 20M to start opening up.
Was prepared for a long stint with tent fly up for shelter and a torch handy for the walk out.
Alas came the low rumble and crash of a approaching storm front so signed off in a hurry, ripped everything down ,shoved all into my rucksack and departed.
Just made it to the car as the storm swept in.
Real pain as UK and a Italian callers were almost blocking the KX3’s front end, could only confirm a couple.
Heard other stations calling as well at good strength.
So ended that attempt at dx and S2S. Hopefully things will be better on the 25th coming.
Cheers, Nick VK2AOH
