  1. Hi Anthony... I heard Jack, W1FDY mention your call on Saturday... I was behind the big long callsign EI185RNLI at the time. QRM meant that I couldn't hold it with the DX net... good to hear you on the air, even if we didn't have a QSO.
    all the best

  2. Gerry, yes indeed I heard the EI185RNLI call being repeated but couldn't hear your side. Nice to hear the special call on the bands. I wonder will it be on again so that I might work it?

    Jack asked me if I wanted to be included in the net but I was waiting for ages and didn't hear my callsign and then he faded in QSB.

    I was glad to get Stateside with my modest setup. I work 20m on either an Antron 99 or a half-size G5RV!!

    I hope we get a chance to work on the bands soon.

    73 for now
    EI8GHB Anthony.

  3. Two of the lads from the group are in Aran, on Inismor, today, and will be on the air, most likely 20 & 40, until about 2pm. The call will be EJ185RNLI, as it's on the Aran Islands.
    They (we) will also be QRV from Clifden on the last weekend of the month. We're skipping next weekend since we'll all be at the Mayo rally.
    Good on you making it into the States with the 1/2 G5RV... that's quite the achievement, given the state of the solar flux atm.
    Might see you at the Mayo rally, if you're coming down for it.
    best regards
