Shack contacts today

The bands were still poor with a lot of QSB and again mostly European contacts. One from Hollywood but this was Hollywood, County Down, and a Canadian VA3ITA but he was on holiday on Ischia Island in Italy! However a portable station from Zefat City, Israel was quite strong. Another holidaying ham, a German in Crete had been allowed to set up a 40 metre dipole on the roof of his hotel.

The club was given 5 points from II0IEM, an Italian Special Event Station run from December 8th 2015 to November 20th 2016 to celebrate the Giubileo Straordinario della Misericordia or Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy declared by Pope Francis. Awards are available for stations in Europe gaining 50 points or more.
