Lighthouses in Portugal

During our stay in the Algarve, Portugal, we saw some lighthouses.

"Farol da ponta da piedade"

The highlight was the lighthouse "Farol de S. Vicente". It was open to the public, a unique.

QSL received

a few days before my trip to Portugal, I was at the monthly meeting where I can bring and get the QSL.
There were a fair number of QSL's for me, including some remarkable.
There were QSL's of the QSO's with OK1AUZ and 8S0C. Both QSO's are made with my FT817 + ATX1080 antenna and 2.5 watts output. My setup was on the dinertable.

Dag voor de Radio Amateur (VERON)

Yesterday I was at the annual "Dag voor de Radio Amateur" meeting in Apeldoorn. With the CGR we were there with an information stand that I have manned with the others most of the day.

In between there was the opportunity to walk around past the stalls. This time I barely bought, there are still many projects to finish.
8 tickets for the lottery, I bought a commissioned material for a ZS6BKW antenna. I have a monitor sold and further has the new handbook from the VERON. Besides a lot of familiar spoken.

The next 2 weeks I am free from my work would add little to the radio hobby doing. I also have a trip to Portugal.
