An early morning session starting at 06:30 UTC until 08:20 UTC on 40m from the tricycle.
The weather was calm and chilly so able to deploy the 33ft vertical aerial on the back of the bike.
Long path propagation was slow to open on 40m for the UK with the first DX QSO after 07:00 UTC, however I had a quick chat with group member Duncan, EA5ON/M when I first arrived on the promenade.
A great surprise was a call from my good friend Brian, ZL3XDJ who was 5/9+ on the bike!
Hope to get out again later this afternoon/evening on 20m
