Story from 14DX/36054R activity.
Had leave house to approx 8:30 am utc, it's raining, temp approx 4c, just hoping better conditions there in Mehun#1 island, 140 kms drive and arrive to Villedieu Sur Indre where many iWi take place.
I have to drive across Mehun#2 to land on #1, not easy way, haven't got 4x4 hi !
When found nice place i check long/lat, and starting to built antenna, suddenly some hundreds mosquitos attacks.....
I moved to 200m away and no more bzzzzz around my ears.
1st cq was given around 7:25 am utc, beaming 100/120 degres bs is good but many qrm and qrn, it's rainning and i have to turn skypper very often.
As usually was hard to keep clear frequency.
Many thanks all who tried and made contact. See you on next island.
