Was in Moscow Russia, from 8th to 25th July 2016, Thanks to R2AF Sergie for letting me operate from his shack, also thanks to RK3DT Alex, for all his help and showing me around Moscow. I wish I could have met more of the Russian Radio Amateurs, maybe next time when I go again very soon (I love your country and the people).
Thanks for looking me up here on QRZ,com, if we haven't worked yet, then I hope we soon will.
Radio is a medium to make new friends even though we'll probubly never meet in person, but you never know!
