I/PM-204


#1

Hi to all,

yesterday I had activated this summit near my home during IARU contest. I activated I/PM-204 on 432 Mhz band and also 144 Mhz band in SSB and FM with other SOTA activator on I/LO-182.
I work with only 2,5 watts all my QSO’s by my Yaesu FT 817ND, telescopic antenna 144/430 dual band and 6 A/h lead battery.

I’m happy for new italian summit references and I hope that this nice work is very good for the future!

I hope to hear yours callsigns in HF band, but also I work more in VHF and UHF bands.
I’m also alpine rescuer and I hope to work many high summits in the future!

Many thanks and best 73’s!

and sorry for my english…

Andrea :wink:

Hi, Andrea

Enjoy your activations from your beatiful summits. Hope to hear you on HF soon.
For my HF-Equipment I use a LiFePo4 battery which is half the weight of a lead battery and delivers about 12 to13 V over a long time. For 2 hours of operation with 5 to 10 W a 2Ah battery schould be sufficient. You can save weight and take a larger antenna:grinning:

73,
Peter

Thanks for the report!

I’ll second the vote for LiFePo4, they’re very convenient and light!
I went for a couple of ZIPPY Flightmax 4200mAh 4S1P 30C LiFePo4 Pack from HobbyKing
