(obscured), Phil Brooks, Harry Weatherley with Ernie Moore behind. This photo was taken after we adjourned from the QRN-heavy DX location to the neighbouring clifftop where, under Chris Martin’s expert guidance, a long wire was dropped over the edge and we all heard Radio Monte Carlo 1466 signing on in the local afternoon! Certainly a top moment in my personal DX history spanning more than 50 years.
