Mayan Equinox via ham radio

Spring has sprung - and what better way to celebrate it than by ham radio.  Today I worked a neat Special Event station, XE3MAYA/D on PSK31 (on 15 meters) in the Mexican Yucatan celebrating the 2011 Mayan Equinox.  This was a neat one for me as I had majored in college in North and South American anthropology and many years ago I had visited the Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza (depicted in the XE3MAYA QSL card). 

I'm going to enjoy this QSL card when it arrives!
