The 'Green -hole'...in Timisoara / KN05ps...downtown location of YO2IS & DM

We are living here since 1974, lot of fun with amateur radio, Contests and DX -ing remain a real challenge !.
Lately got fun with TV-sat 'DX', already got 11 TV-sat's from 0.8 West to 23.5 East with the western dishes
and 3 TV-sat's, 39 to 45 East, with the eastern dish, not bad for our tiny skywindows !.
