Light House Weekend

Today I worked several light house stations mainly on 40 meter. I worked EA1WD on 20m with BPSK63. Earlier today propagation wasn't great, sometimes I doubt if the antenna is okay. But there is nothing wrong with my antenna. ;-) Tonight 40m was in a good shape. With BPSK31 I worked Jaap LA/PA5JD/P we had a nice chat. He lives normally nearby (Egmond-binnen) that's only 5 km from my village.

He works in Norway for a year as a cheese maker. We never met before. I also worked: DJ2PW, R6DD, G6BFP, UB2FAB, ES6JAN, OK1DOZ, S51UZ, DK0EPC and DL2ALY/LH. Enough for today.
