Patience of a saint
The faintly haunted expression on Ian's face will
be explained when you hear what he has to put up with when he
pokes his head up on 20m and gets spotted on a cluster.
This was an amazing opening to Australia given the
state of the sun cycle, and the forecast was a little pessimistic.
It's a pity there were no other VKs around to share the
Really big signal
There are a number of stations here who should be
seriously ashamed of their indiscipline - the DX code went west.
And please, do not read out or spell the details
easily found on your QRZ page during a heap like this.
You won't hear a VK contact like this very
often in the UK. The pile up is truly biblical, too bad EA5EE
was rewarded for his really really annoying bulldozing.
And then 2017-05-07T19-51-32Z_14172kHz I found Ian without a pileup...
And then a scratchy start to a session that came good -
2017-05-08T23-23-55Z_14165.0kHz. I put Ian on the cluster at the end, and stood aside as a stampede showed up :-)
Getting to be matter of fact... -
2017-07-19T23-12-33Z_14160.0kHz. I grabbed Ian after had been the G3TPW treatment... :-)
