The Commonwealth contest (BERU) are out.

Team 1 Australia second, team 2 Australia got fourth.  Congratulations to all contesters.








Can't stop thinking:  Who is going to travel to Canada to break few fingers for the next year test?

I have earned my glass of red wine now.

It is Saturday evening and I think I've earned my customary glass of nice red.  Worked hard for it.



The signals here in Sydney are the strongest I've heard so far.  He is doing 589 most of the time.  Great op, great ears.

An other QSO with VK0EK

Their QSL confirmation is amazing.  It is nice to see that seconds after you worked them you are confirmed.  No need for "insurance" contact.


Thanks guys... great ears and top operators.

Had the pleasure to visit Barry's VK2BJ shack

Yesterday Barry invited me to see his new radio and the shack arrangement.


Unfortunately I had only my phone to take the pictures.

Very impressive shack.

Also thank you Margaret for the cup of tea.

The moment the QRM stopped (see the previous post) this fellow popped up.  I've been chasing him for the last two days.  Second call.
