I was very happy to inform you about my DX trip to ZL7 after an interval of 8 years, and actually enjoyed this DX holiday.
Well, all of contact to have done were exciting and impressive, and forced hard works.

I would like to say thank you who help and made QSOs with me sincerely.
See you somewhere and sometime in near future.

Thank you
