Atmosphere during CQ WPX RTTY Contest 2019

Saturday, 9th February 2019, was an extraordinary day for us. After many years, the OM3KSI call sign once again appeared on the amateur radio bands. At 8:16 UTC, we established our first connection in the contest with station UC0A on the 14 MHz band. We thus began a new history of the OM3KSI radio club.
