Holiday is over, saw 2 lighthouses.

After 2 weeks holiday it's, next Tuesday, time to work.

We stayed in the Netherlands and have visited different places. Wijk aan Zee, Amsterdam and Schoorl.
From Wijk aan Zee we drove to IJmuiden to take a picture of the lighthouse "high light". Nearly 10 years ago I was by this lighthouse, in that time I had no digital camera.

During the stay in Schoorl we drove to Den Oever for a picture of this this lighthouse.

Visit Flickr for more pictures of our holiday.

DXCC in frame

Last week, in a second hand store, I found a new frame for my DXCC certificate.The frame is a little bit larger then the certificate, the small whit border is not a problem for me.

My own fieldday, PA3GNZ/P

Last Saturday I had my own fieldday. My intention was to make more qso's then last year (8).

Between 13:00 and 15:30 UTC I made 31 qso's. This with only 2,5 watts from my Yaesu FT817nd with a small battery.
The additional support of the pole was now on 3 and 9 meters. The variant off the ZS6BKW/G5RV antenna was mounted in the middle about 10 meters high. I used the antenna as an inverted V.

Nice weather and a lot of fun.

New DXCC certificate

Last week I wrote about the certificate I received. It was folded in the envelope.
Yesterday the post ring the bell with the announcement that there was an envelope to big for my mailbox. So, she gave it personal to me. This time the certificate was between 2 pieces of cardboard. A very good & quick service from the ARRL.
The only thing I have to do is put it into a frame. Until now I did find a frame from size 28 x 35 cm. It's 11 x 14 inch.

Yesterday evening I finished with the upload of my PB0ALS log to LOTW. All HF qso's I made are manual uploaded to the LOTW server.
Today (August 25) there are 5851 qso's in LOTW and 651 are confirmed by qsl.Write me if you worked me in the past but there is no qsl match on LOTW.

DXCC certificate

Last week, via the LOTW site, I made a request for the DXCC mixed certificate. Yesterday I received the certificate in the mailbox.
Unfortunately, the envelope is so large that it was folded into the mailbox. Despite the board, there was a big crease in the certificate
After an email exchange with the ARRL helpdesk, they promised me a new certificate. This time it is shipped in a tube at no additional cost.
