I said in my last entry that I’d been preparing for a trip away and it so happened that at 07:00 on day #97, I flew out of London Stansted bound for Amsterdam. I live about an hour away from the airport and I planned to be there by 06:00. That meant leaving here at 05:00 and so I was out of bed at 04:00. At 04:18 I worked WA2KHP, Walter on 40m for my QSO of the day.
I stayed at the D’ Vijf Broers hotel, located in JO22jl which had a great view across the river and it’s own little beach area.
The only downside was that being close to the water there were some nasty bitey insects around which took a liking to me and I’ve got three horrible red lumps on my wrists and hands.
I returned home on a late flight on day #98 and had one contact on 15m with SV4FFK, Sakis in Greece.
Day #99 saw more contacts but not as many as usual for a weekend. I’ve been playing around with my QRSS grabber and the radio was running that for quite a long time. However I did have QSOs with UY1IX, Olex on 15m and then OH5CX, Simo, EA7HAZ, Manuel, and SP9HYX, Jacek on 20m.
