Full of Surprises!

The sun has just set here and what a day it has been! Radio has been fantastic and thanks to all the people who have managed to work us during a very busy morning and afternoon. The bands are changing now, although 20m is still open. Our first foray into psk31 on 30m seems to be working just fine, other data modes and hopefully some CW a little later on.
Surprise of the day was a visit by a dear friend who sneaked onto Jura on his bicycle all the way from Lancaster ( he didn't peddle all the way!) Nice to see you Barry G1JYB and you are truly mad, its a long way to travel for some light refreshment!!!
We have had a lovely meal tonight, prepared by Mark, roast Lamb with all the trimmings! Mark is the chef for the week and has made sure we start each day with a hearty breakfast and a wonderful main dinner in the evening washed down of course with a glass of beer or two

It was nice to work you earlier this evening especially as I don't normally manage to get up north on 80 from my location in Biggin Hill, Kent.
You were a brilliant S9+ signal - it's a shame 6m hasn't been any good as I'd be well pleased to make a contact on that band as well.
All the best

Big S9+++ signals from you on 80m last night (23/9) but I never got to work you as I was called away before a break in the pile up. Sounded like it is going well. Hoping to work Andrew and Mike on their SOTA activations later. Best of luck and hope you have enough beer ;0)

Best regards Steve GW7AAV
