Just back from an assignment from India. When I came home I found out that the 160m inverted-L was destroyed by the cows from the neighbor.  Not sure how they did it. The top-line was across their land but to high for the ladies. Maybe the wind was so heavy (I was not at home, don’t know) that the flex-pole from 16 m was bended so much that the top-line fell to the ground.
Yesterday the farmer brought 40m alu wire back to me.
So no 160/80m for me so I decided to focus on 40m and have some fun on the other bands, mainly 15m&10m.

Saturday 15m&10m were open, but not to the North-West. Later Saturday there was aurora on 2m declared, which explains all.
Sunday only 15m was open, 10m only short skip time-to-time.



I made nearly 600 qso’s on 20 active hours (had to play volleyball on Saturday), quite nice with some nice Zones worked on 40m.
Missed Zones like 3/6/19 even on 15m!

Preparing for the trip now to Easter Island. You can follow all the details on the site. Already there are 4 videoblogs running!
