I have been emailing back and forth with Jens, DL7VTX, over the past day or so, and he wanted me to fill you all in on a few of his trip details.
Hi Zack ,
Tnx qso & qsl , I will send qsl direct if printed in abt 1..2 month . Was vy enjoyed working via sats during hikes at this very beautiful small tropical island . Had always good takeoffs either at sea - level or in 500...860 mtrs elevation .
