The Radio Society of Great Britain
My first contact this evening was Special Event Station G100RSGB, who by the way, had a great signal into West Virginia. I was surprised when I worked him, because there was quite a "pile up" and it required a wide "split" of a little more than the standard "one up". I've learned over the years, that under these conditions, I need to be on the "very far side " of the group. I was able to work him on my 5th attempt.
The Great Britain Radio Club is celebrating 100 years of operation now. While looking at their web site, I found an interesting and very functional memorabilia item. I can never remember seeing anything like this in the past.
Before shutting down for the evening I also worked OM3SX in the Slovak Republic. We've worked several times this year.
This evening was my 17th contact into the English area. I've also worked stations in the Slovak Republic 23 times now.
