Leszek (SP3DOI) and XYL, Krystyna (SP3HDB) started their trip around the world since 30 November, 09. They are arrived Hong Kong in the afternoon of 4 December and scheduled to depart to the next country (Australia) on 6 December. I told them that is the best time to be here because the 2009 East Asian Games will have the opening ceremony on 5 December evening, set in Victoria Harbour. Also, have Fireworks show as well. Fireworks will be roughly at 2115hrs and last for 15 minutes, local time. He took my advice and went up to the Victoria Peak and has dinner there and watches the big show.
On 6 Dec, Leszek and Krystyna took the MTR to Fanling Station, met up with me and my XYL, Pansy. After lunch, back to my QTH and Les spent an hour in my shack to operate the special event call “VR2009EAG”, made about 50 QSO on 17M, majority stations from Europe.
Then I drove them to the Airport in the late afternoon.
I am happy met up personally with Les after many QSOs in the past years, especially while he was the operator in most major Expedition.
