Holyland DX contest & Happy Easter!

Happy Easter to everybody! Well, it’s not that happy overhere. My aunt passed away on Wednesday. So I drove 900 km to visit my grandma (87) and tell her the bad news. 🙁 Then took her with me to my mom’s place and she will stay with us over the Easter weekend. It’s her second child she lost now within short time (my father passed away just one and a half years ago) and I had fear she would not stand it (she had severe health problems after my dad died). So we will take special care of her. It’s always bad if parents outlive their children. 🙁

On radio matters we met at the contest QTH today. Made a few QSOs in the Holyland DX contest (see below) and another few in CQMM that is lasting until tomorrow. Had some nice discussions, cake & coffee and will meet again tomorrow to take care of the aberration of the 15 m rotator. Condx are quite bad, was really tough to get W1AW/5 and /0 into the log today (yes, I’m trying to work them from every state). Keeping fingers crossed they will get better again during the next days.
