today it was my second try to activate DM/BW-256, so i go up there if rain or not
i say´ed before
but what a activation , in some short words
- rain,a broken antenna and masses of mosquitos …
by setting up the antenna one wire of the 2x7m dipole broken direct at the center .only one antenna with me .mmhhh, throw the 7m wire in a tree and hope for good conds
my z-match tuned the 7m wire with the other part of the dipol as counterpoise
on all bands without problems. but one C of the tuner was not in order, so i can only go up to abt. 4…5watt cw/ssb.the result with the short wire in
a tree are 68 logged qso´s on hf. most sigs are very weak today,also the well known regulars seems to be quiter as normal, but maybe that was my “antenna”.
best bands today with this hi-tec antenna are 14 and 30m. on 30m a few UA-stns
calling in with also UA9WFB and UA3LPF/M.
68 qso´s with a handicap … fine !
thanks all chasers who called me today. they must have good ears
due to the light rain by the activation and the big rain from the last days, the forest ground on these summit was a paradise for mosquitos.but no problem,
i think, i take my “autan” spray.but after a a short look in my rucksack
it seems, i forgotten it in my car.
so sorry for my part times more as badly keying, but i fight with these
little bloodsuckers. think i called G4SSH roy with 8 dots or so
thanks for fast break in and cfm qso roy ! …
today on the summit are many of my little “friends” with me, and stayed till
my last calls i made after abt. 60mins on 20m/ssb.
now i work on the antenna…
