Contact with Hawaii

I made QSO with Arch AH6U from Maui, Hawai in FT8 mode on 20m band.
I was very pleased with this contact.

Spring walk 4/2020

I took a short spring walk just 40km away from my base location and experienced a nice view of the valley at sunset. Made of course a few local contacts.
