After some years of absence, the German IR-DX crew decided to organize a fieldday meeting again.
The first fieldday visitors from the Netherlands (19IR04 Rob and his wife) and Switzerland (15IR076 Chris and his wife), did arrive as one of the first on friday afternoon.
Meanwhile the crew was busy with cleaning and building up the side and got some help from the visitors, to get ready for the main fieldday on saturday.
IR and non-IR members
Several (non) members from the area, showed up on fridayevening, to say hello and took a few drinks.
Under great weather conditions with a clear blue sky and very sunny weather, the fieldday started on saturdaymorning.
More members, including non-members, showed up and we had a lot of nice eyeball QSO contacts.
It was really nice to meet several old friends, who did not see eachother for over 10-20-30 years.
Some “Young Ladies” from the IR-DX group had made some nice cake at home and did share it during the fieldday. At the late saturday afternoon, we had a nice BBQ with several nice salads.
The eyeball QSO contacts, did continue until the end of the evening. On sunday, the fieldday was being faced out, little by little and at the end of the afternoon, it was really ended.

Fieldday – 11 WW Contest
As we know that the 11 WorldWide contest was running, we decided to use 13IR/HQ as our callsign, instead of 13IR000.
We knew, that we did not announce it in advance, but we did not make a serious plan to be active many hours.
So far, 79 radio contacts could be made, mainly inside Europe, but also with continents Africa and South-America.
We would like to thank all people involved with the fieldday organization and all participants to make this event a success after some years again.
Unfortunately one of the organizers was in quarantaine, so unfortunately he and his wife were not able to join us.
