An activation in marvelous fall colours : ONFF-0385 Ronde Put in Mol, very close to the cheese-making monks of Postel.
Bands in excellent shape, worked 10-15-20 and 40 meters. A very hugh pile-up on 20m CW made me going split, good for about 100 different calls in the log, logged at 3 stations a minute. My CW skills are still improving !
This time not only surprised and wondering joggers, bikers and hikers but also lot of silly looking ship-men staring to that insane fellow with a fishing rod at the wrong side of the channel … lol.
323 QSO’s in 35 DXCC and 3 continents. Best DX : HS0ZIV (new /P DXCC), several JA, UA0 (zone 18&19) and VE. Again not one USA station despite 20m was wide open and spotting on the Field Radio page. Pity pity pity …
