2018-12-03 Being active in amateur radio at a strange time on a strange band: new country 3 months ago
Today I had a day off to arrange some stuff and found some time for amateur radio. I decided to put the longwire antenna outside and use the tuner to get on different bands than the standard 10/20/40.

So I was active at a strange time (during a working day) on a band I haven't been active on in months. Soon I saw signals from C5YK who is in The Gambia. After several tries I made the contact and had a new country in the log.

I also tried a lot of times to contact a station from Rodrigues Island but they never heard me.
