HB9CVQ calling from Berikon Switzerland. He had an excellent signal from that part of the world and responded immediately when I returned my call sign. The solar flux index is only 99 this morning, the A index is steady at 18 and the K index is rising but at only 2.
I didn't expect to hear this strong of a signal at 4,342 miles.
Switzerland makes over half the watches in the world but another well know product from there is the Swiss Army Knife. I have one, and I'd bet just about every day hiker around here has the same. The world is constantly changing, and with these changes, businesses adapt to new markets.
The knife above is a novel idea, and a good example of the changing world. It's a novel idea, but , of course, you wouldn't be able to fly with one of these, no matter how hard you argued about a thumb drive for your computer.
The "Swiss Omega Speedmaster" is the watch worn on the Apollo Space Missions. It's been to the moon and back. I bet it still keeps perfect time.
