In spite of the high temperature in my attic (still over 25 degrees C) another nice voice radiocontact this evening was with Maarten, PD1MZ from Den Helder. We had a chat on 40m, 7087 kHz in LSB. Nice to hear that Den Helder did not change that much. About 25 years ago I worked for the Dutch Royal Navy and had to visit Den Helder a few times a year so it was good to hear that the navy vessels are still there. I used 15 Watts and Maarten about 40 Watts to establish the link. Den Helder is about 90 km away from my QTH Zoetermeer.
