Ham Spirit is alive...

6 months now Im searching over the Internet with many friends around the world a 390 pF capacitor rated at 500V in a 1820 case for recovery a mistake during my FT-847 4m modification. Many old friends they give up very early saying that "it's very dificult" or "is too complicted" to find it... except an unexpected one: Jille PA3EAQ. He said don't worry will find it... Im sayin unexcepted becuse Jille is a new ham friend and not so close to me until that day.

Finally today I get the letter with 3 capacitors inside...!!!





Thanks Mr. Jille for your Ham Spirit...!!!
Thanks for your time and your expences. 
Thanks my friend.

A full ham radio day...

We wake up at 7:00...and the Windom antenna change the position that have the last 4 years. New erection ...new hopes. All goes well and ZL's comes at 17m CW with 599 signals on their grey line.


Then the promise to my young son for a mountain walk with radio operation.All equipment and antennas was prepared by him and finally the Sunday comes....









Then the first QSO on 20m band and ....finals on FT-817 blown...!!!

Back home again...
 
The Aiolus 2-way Ham Ballon project it's running and it's a good opportunity to have the QSO. 
After many tries the operator gets my call and YES....Im into the log.
We celebrate it with 2 fresh orange juices at our veranda...

Sound is bad, but if you increase (a lot) the volume you can hear it...  Sorry
