Ham radio portable DX station

My amateur radio station working portable on the Scottish coast with tall fibreglass masts holding up a 102ft-long antenna. On this trip I contacted Thailand twice inside ten minutes, Togo, Canary Islands and Albania as well as several other "easier" countries less far away. A beautiful afternoon. ("DX" refers to Distance X or distance unknown, since there's no way to know how far the radio signal could travel) The wind was a good deal stronger than it looks here so I couldn't safely use the full height of the central mast. (It's over 40ft high)
