EA6UN Balearic Islands Spain
I found a good path into Europe again. Jurek (EA6UN) gave me a 579 report from the Balearic Islands (off the eastern coast of Spain). I remember this area from my long voyages when I was in the Navy. Sailing through the passage between the Rock of Gibraltar and the coast of Africa was always windy and the seas were always ruff. I can still remember the sting on my face, and the grit in my teeth, from the blowing sand in Africa.
I worked this same station a few years ago. It was good to hear him again. He made a short comment about my 5 watt QRP signal. Very complimentary.....
