  1. Hello Diego....I have seen many videos of QSOs I have had over many years, but yours is very special! This is a truly excellent, high quality video, with good, clear audio. Your presentation is very artful also, with the addition of the pictures from my website. It was both a great surprise and pleasant experience to find this on the WWW. Many thanks again for a great QSO! 73 and Happy DXing, Mike W2AJI.
