I had not been on air for a couple of days so decided to have an early session this morning using Psk on 40m - did not work any dx but found some new calls resulting in a few nice exchanges with JOSE - EA5HIH seen here in his shack.He is in Valencia - one of my favorite regions, we regularly visit an area just to the south of Valencia near moraira (a typical small fishing village and you get a feel of Spain in the old town) same as Benissa and further south is Calp or (Calpe).. but it's a bit touristy - but the sunshine's hot here especially during july/august - in early spring/summer the air is pleasantly warm and full of orange blossom - I have also operated from here as well with my FT817 into a dipole - the whole kit packed into my hand luggage - no fuss at the airports either !!! Thanks Jose for the Qso - I long for a return trip to your country soon.
Other stations worked were Dan LA2NRA, and OL75PKY Jiri who is age 75 fantastic! Good Job.
