Hi Tony, N2UN

I remenber our succesfull SSB QSO via FO-29 from the promenade
behind the East River up to the bay of Naples on april 15, 2007

Our QSO from NYC (FN30) and JN70ES was 7052.5 km 

Tank you for sending the photograph of the Hell Gate Bridge along
with your portable pedestal + antennas and tranceivers

>From your picture I realize that you where full loaded with the antennas
in your hands and the equipments into your bag

I hope to make another try when FO-29 will be reactivated in 2010
.....................Well done Tony look for a way to lighten the load !
