ZF1DJ Cayman Islands

 The last several weeks I've been cruising around Germany on the Danube and Rhine Rivers. It was an interesting trip which brought back memories (of earlier days)  hauling coal on small boats here in West Virginia.

We traveled almost a thousand miles and passed through many sets of locks from Vienna to Amsterdam. Some of them were difficult to traverse, and sometimes, it was difficult to pass another boat on the narrow canals that linked these two rivers.

I've missed the radio the last few weeks so this afternoon, I immediately tuned into the 20 meter QRP frequency where I heard a strong Cayman Islands station (ZF1DJ).

I was able to work him with 5 watts.

It feels good to be back on the air.

My favorite city along the route was Amsterdam. They really know how to enjoy life there!
