I'm quite well educated in history. I'm also aware of France's history since then as well. Maybe you stopped going to class after the Louisiana Purchase.
Thanks for the partial history lesson!
Napoleon was the last good thing to happen to France and Europe
You are DX for me.
I have never worked a UK station in 46 years of being a Ham, unless you can count Ireland. I have never been a DX chaser. I am a rag chewer. I worked Ireland on 10 meters mobile @ 10 watts PEP in the 1990's. I still get a thrill thinking about it.
I had a great contact which last 20 or so minutes. The good old days when the band conditions were good & I still had hair.
Curmudgeon & old crow
History made nations and many of them had good time in the past, at the present or may have in the future.
And whatever happens I will always enjoy DX-ing with all of them.
...speaking DX-ing either propagation is going really bad or my antennas getting rusted.
Well rather rusted - after changing coax it's much better
Being only on VHF simplifies things.

Because of the post-Brexit difficulty of maintaining the Eire/Northern Ireland border, there is a modest chance that Ireland could be re-unified as one country and the UK would cease to exist as such.
Belfast is a very interesting city, it would be intriguing to see it re-absorbed into the Republic!
