ZD7XF and some reminiscences!

I was really pleased to work Nigel, ZD7XF at the weekend for a new country.

Nigel is, of course, G3TXF at home and is a very well-known and respected contester and dxpeditioner. He's also a fine man. Some years ago, I had the absolute pleasure of working with him and Roger, G3SXW on a project building a website and database reporting on the financial performance of Telecom companies. In fact, on Nigel's amateur radio website, there's still a bit of code that I wrote which shows all of Nigel's DXpeditions that a particular callsign has worked, band by band!

So, whenever I work Nigel from a faraway place, it's always a particular pleasure.
