QRV /P from the beach - EA5 Castellon JN00aa

I was qrv from the beach in EA5 Castellon - JN00aa last night

Temperature at 21.00z was 27C, pleasant with the sea breeze. The propagation accompanied too, with a lot of callers coming back to my CQ calls until about 21.30z

55 QSOs in about 2hrs of CW operation 

DX: JAx5, K4, UN & partial with FK8DD/M
I also heard Korea & Brazil very loud, but were too busy.

Equipment: FT-817ND, 1/4wave ground plane on at 7m pole.

I will be back tonight and possibly another day this week in the evening.

    1. Hi Bert,
      Thanks for the comments. It was great fun to operate from the beach at dusk. Conditions were great and at some point JA stations started to call me back and even raised a mini-pile up. Congrats on the Cylinder antenna. It has taken me a long time to catch Isle of Man.
