Micro batch cocktail: Old Pali Road Whiskey with a Java Plum Shrub.
The Java plum grows wild on the Windward side and this cocktail was inspired by my mom and her cousins, who as kids, went hiking and walking and through the “Gushy-Gosh” and coming home with plum stains. These tiny wild plums are from my backyard. Old Pali Road Whiskey Distillery is about a mile as straight as the ʻAlalā (Hawaiian crow) flies. Only 10 orders available. TikisGrill.com

I was able to speak with 6
on the radio. I was using a Icom ic-7300 and a G5RV jr antenna with 100 watts: Call sign KH6ML, I was only able to be on the air for a limited amount of time. So getting 4 new ones in the log was great.
"Many leading contesters claim the WAEDC to be the most challenging contest of the year. Being a true blue DX contest, only intercontinental QSOs between DX and Europe are counted (exception is the RTTY part). Therefore the number of DX QSOs here may be similar to the amount of DX usually worked in the CQWW." -https://www.darc.de/der-club/referate/referat-conteste/worked-all-europe-dx-contest/en/

Moreover, the unique feature of QTC-traffic adds much fun and another operating challenge to the contest. Here the DX stations transfer real telegrams to the European stations. These telegrams contain data of previously logged QSOs. Each of these records counts one additional point for the sender and the receiver, given that the complete record was logged correctly. Thus, a DX station can actually double its score by sending QTCs. Some European stations, and not only the leading ranks, gain more than 70 percent of their score from QTC traffic. - https://www.darc.de/der-club/referate/referat-conteste/worked-all-europe-dx-contest/en/
