The weather was not fine and also propagation but we were able to complete our first activity of 2010, reference DRI-I004, also valid for the Italian Municipalities Award DMI-0983, making 108 QSOs in the log, which is already available online.
On Saturday 15th and Sunday, May 16th at our stand at "Computerfest & Radioamateur" in Malpensa Fiere (Busto Arsizio-VA) will be available the QSL for all who connected us.
After Installing the gazebo and banner in the early morning, Fulvio IZ2EXA and Mario IZ2GAO mounted the vertical antenna by I1UJX on land adjacent to City Hall, thanks to the kind of available condominiums of Via Trieste 44, we were allowed to have access to their garden so w thanks them a lot!
We were able to operate from 07:30 UTC to 14:00 UTC, then we had to pass to QRT because of rain, with an intermission for lunch by the Restaurant "Once Upon a Time " (QSL SPONSOR!) where we enjoyed a great traditional menu.
During the day we received the visit of the Mayor of Buguggiate Mrs. Cristina Galimberti, the Deputy Mayor Dr. Alessandro Vedani, the Parson Don Giovanni and some Councillors.
It was a very nice experience in the context of a traditional event as the "Festival of the Village."
The following Members enjoined:
Patrizia SWL I2-5134 with his daughter and our "mascot" Camilla.
confirming once again the spirit of aggregation of our activities!
