Continuing an animal theme, over the road were the team from G0ATS/P who made no QSOs, having eaten all their equipment.

Making the contact was easier than trying to post multiple pictures!

It's a lot easier to do a screen grab than to try to photograph the laptop screen.

Hi Adrian

This is a screengrab of your testcard I received when you were working stations further north.
I simply press the windows logo and the Print Screen key and the pic is saved in my Screenshots folder.

I saw and heard several stations but failed to make contact .750 was very busy with some really good DX being worked.

Thanks for that Arthur ...I pushed the buttons and the screen dimmed ..so I guess that it worked! Where it is on the computer remains a mystery at the moment!
