3A/YO2MSB: Monte Carlo calling! Between 07 and 11 of September 2014 I was QRV in portable from Monte Carlo. An authorisation from the Monaco Department of Communications was issued for this event. First day of activation done in 07 of September from the main dock of the Monte Carlo bay. Second day done in 09 of September from the same location. Last day of activations was 11 of September, late in the evening from the same dock, with an outstanding propagation in 20m due to the effects of an incoming solar storm. Hundreds of QSO's made on these 3 days with stations from 5 continents. A special QSL card designed only for these 3A activations will be issued very soon and available to all stations worked during the activations in Monaco. Pictures can be seen in 3 albums, following the links below on this page.
A lot of direct QSL Cards are already received. I will send back my QSL cards later this year for every direct QSL request. Bureau QSL's will be spreaded next year.
Logs already completed on QRZ.com, local HRD and eQSL's checked.
