    It was a very humbling day. There is just something about being there to see it and breathe it in in person.
    Here are a couple pics of bomb craters still left over from D-Day.

    And the monument that President Regan stood in front of while giving the speech for the 45th anniversary.

    Most probably last fishing trip in my boat for the summer. Picked up a load of fishing line on my prop,so needs a strip down and service . Fishing wasn't too good- a few joeys [small mackeral] and a few decent sized pollack. But the seals were out sunbathing , so made it a great trip. Threw a few fish for him ,but the fat , lazy b****d couldn't be bothered to move :)

    Warning ,warning HAM speak ahead......QSL

    5BTV 5 band vertical. After 10 years of trying dipoles, bazookas, you name it... etc...due to a ridiculous height restriction IMHO I put up the vertical.
    There are 27, 30 foot radials buried. Advice from some said don’t go to a vertical, I was tired of really not operating and took the plunge.

    First contact was East Coast net in Maine, next was Slovenia then Spain. Recently chatted with my Elmer on Prince Edward Island which was a first for me. It’s flat across higher bands but 75m is really limited to about 150khz spread.
    The antenna is awesome for DX.:)

    After years of running dipoles and never having a height restriction this was a big change.
