Every third Sunday is time for 9A VHF and Up Activity contest.

And as this reference is very near to me (about 15km ) and last activity was in 2019, and no many QSOs where made in past:

It was logical choice.

54 QSOs where made in VHF Contest on 144MHz.

200QSOs on 7 and 14MHz.

Interesting is that DX stations was somehow with better signals than many closer.

K2TRD Martin NY, ful 59.

UN7BBD Alex 599
