100th anniversary of the Czechoslovak Republic

We celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Czechoslovak Republic (Czechoslovakia) on October 28, 1918. I’ll be one of the special callsigns on the air.

Activity from OKFF-1097 Vinořský park

I drive around this area always when I go to work or return home. It took some time but I decided to visit it this afternoon. We have a few last sunny days and it’s really nice and relaxing to spend them in the nature.

Meeting with Joe, WC4R

Joe is the owner of callbook.us domain which is redirected to HamQTH.com. We were in touch via email for some time and last year, he wrote me they are going to visit some EU countries this holiday. Finally, we met in Prague this morning and had a lovely eyeball QSO. Thank you, Joe!

My activity from Flora & Fauna areas

World Flora & Fauna program is very popular. You can work several stations from different areas every day. I was also active from three areas this year. Twice from a car, once with QRP FT-817.  My next activity will be with QRP directly from the area. Sitting in the car is not funny.
