A sepcial QSO was between PH9HB/AM Jerry in a Boeing 737 at 33'000ft above Toulouse and HB9PJT Peter in Switzerland in his home shack "Air - See - Land QSO". I met a lot of my Swiss Colleagues from my homebase club HB9RF and HB9O station in the Swiss Museum of Transport in Lucerne. And finally two contacts to the MUBA exhibition in Basel Switzerland.

The local QRM from the Ship was always S7-9 and the conditions near Iceland was very poor at that given time due to the Sun Aurora activity over Iceland (green zone).
I had only 5 QSOs on 20m with: 9A7JCY, EI7M, I4TJE, OE5SLN and HG17HD between 28. and 29. July 2017.
At that time I was between Kirkwall Scotland and Hamburg on the sea.
I was happy to meet Ari TF3ARI in Reykjavik. He is the most active Ham-Radio Operator in Iceland.
