Greetings from Finland
I arrived today in Finland where I will be working this week. I brought along a little Grundig G6 Aviator receiver (yeah, it's the "Buzz Aldrin Edition") as it is tiny, runs on batteries and also has a BFO so I can decode CW and SSB signals. I have a little wire antenna I clip on the whip and string it up in the window of my hotel. 20 metres is very busy tonight with a lot of CW, digital and SSB signals. It will be interesting to see how the band does as the sun goes down. Only problem is... I can barely keep my eyes open as I have been up for about 24 hours. We shall see how it goes.
