YOTA Italy Saturday

By July 18, 2015YOTA Italy 2015
Hello to all!
This is ‘Dante on the Air’ writers team.
Saturday 18th of July. The start of YOTA 2015 summer event. There is no appropriate word to express the excitement each one of us had, no matter if they were present on some previous YOTAs or this was their first time.  In my case, some 2 busy sleepless days before.


It’s needless to say that the day was excellent. Different activities for everyone. The pool for those who were seeking some place to cool themselves, because it was a terribly hot day, approximately 35 degrees Celsius. Not so pleasant for our Nordic friends, because when they departed from their homes, they said it was only 10°C. Some other went to the beach, while some wanted to give a few CQs at our II5YOTA station, to get familiar with it.

I was thrilled, the pileups were enormous. Our radio team made some 800 QSOs on that day, mostly SSB but some morse as well.
The rest of the day was running smoothly. There was a lot of new faces to meet. We were hanging out deep in the night. The only thing that could be heard was the laughter.
