Hello,

The first day of TM2IF activation is a success.
Many of you showed up for this activation in tribute to EA2IF.

Four activators were at the meeting with 6 summits activated.

The first activation carried out around 7:00 UTC with myself @F5ODQ on F/PO-207 with good contacts

On 20 Meters with Australia and New Zealand ( @VK5PAS, @VK3AFW, @ZL4NVW) and a great 17000 km S2S with Australia (@VK3GTV/P ) in SSB with only 10W and a dipole.

Thank’s Matthew @ZL4NVW for contact
Thank,s Colin @VK3GTV for S2S

As soon as I have recovered all the logs I will give you the first statistics.

Thanks to all chasers; Guru loved DX, he will appreciate

Alain,
I haven’t heard you yet but I’ll keep trying!

Guru also mentioned on the Reflector that he enjoyed mountain hiking with his dog. He will be pleased to see Niocky participating in his honor. :slightly_smiling_face:

I think Guru’s dog was called ‘Lucho’ which according to Google translate, comes out as ‘fighter’ or ‘warrior’, which I find quite apt.
