Laurie G3UML visited Manly as VK2UML

It was second Laurie's visit to my QTH.  This time he arrived with his new call VK2UML and badly needed to give it some "airing".

Early in the evening the condx were not that good, but after dinner the 20 m band (starting LP and soon switched to SP) turned to be excellent.

Laurie was able to QSO all over EU and mainly was able to catch up with his friends in G land.


I was fascinated with his skills of handling the pileup on SSB.  I'm most of the time CW operator.

    1. Hi Bas. I'll clear it with Laurie and change it to public.

As expected the condx were not as good as one can hope for.  After all we are just about to hit the solar minimum. Band QSOs 160: 0 80:...
