Still active

The Volcano on Iceland is still active. Next week my xyl is going for a horse back riding in Ireland. First she'll have to fly to Belfast, from there with a hired car to Sligo, Ireland. I do not hope that the dust from the volcano will be a spoilsport for her.

On 10 meter I worked 9A1CCB and E7ØEPC with PSK31 and PSK125.


  1. Hi Paul:

    Your xyl is getting about these days - hope she has a good time in Ireland - I was in Ireland in 1993 and although we did have some sunny days it got quite damp and chilly during the evenings, and of course the countryside is so green - one point though if she drives, the secondary roads are awful (we're talking 3 foot wide holes a foot deep) BEWARE !

    Hope she has lovely time - now back to re-organising the shack !

  2. If the volcano perks up again think about all those hams unable to get back from Dayton.

  3. Hi Peter, I told the XYL about the road conditions there. Thanks for your advice. Good luck with the re-organization of your shack. 73 Paul

  4. Hello Julian, getting there is no problem, but going home is another. 73 Paul

  5. Hallo Paul, ik ben in 2004 nog in Ierland geweest en heb daar een auto gehuurd. Heb niets gemerkt van slechte wegen. Althans niet slechter dan hier op de secundaire wegen. Ierland is een prachtig land. Wij hadden elke ochtend motregen, maar rond een uur of 10 klaarde het dan helemaal op. Wens de XYL maar veel plezier. De vulkaan op Ijsland kan nog wel 2 jaar aktief blijven. En als we pech hebben barst de vulkaan ernaast ook nog uit. Leuke verbindingen op 10m, ik laat de radio nog wel een tijdje uit ;-)

    73, Bas
