OL100VP Special Event Station Czech Rebublic

I've been so busy the last few days, it's been difficult to listen to the band, but I was able to work this "Special Event Station" celebrating 100 years of football this evening. The station (OL100VP) is in the Czech Republic.

This is one of the recent contacts I've made with my new Vibroplex Square Racer ,which I'm still getting to know. I like the feel of it. It's a solid key with a different action from my old "spring action" MFJ key. The magnetic draw is very quick and I find myself sending faster already. It begs me to send faster with it's sharp precise releases from the contact pegs.

It will still take me some time to maximize it's qualities but I like it more every time I make a contact.

There's a music festival at the state capitol next week. I will be picking and grinning for a bit. We have relatives coming in, so will not be much time for radio.

I've also been selling off some old radio gear which I don't use anymore. Several pieces have gone already and I plan to sell off much more. I still have both MFJ QRP rigs. (CW and SSB)

Already thinking World Cup *football" (soccer). Great the new key is becoming familiar and GL with your gear sales. Have someone take a video of you performing and post it on u-tube. 73 Dick
