OH/KU-024 activation +plans


#1

Thanks to OE8SPW and HA7UG for spotting on the Tahko mountain last Saturday. Most of the signals were very strong on 20 m. The weather was nice and warm with plenty of mosquitos. After the trip I removed two ticks. OH7AA APRS gateway was working, though my route went through dense forest and there is an easier path to the summit. Also two digi QSOs on PSK31. I used FT817ND 5 W, T1 ATU and loop 7 x 10 m. No luck on 40 m and 2 m.

My next plan is the SRAL summer camp HamiWaara09, where I will talk about the SOTA. The Finnish page is here

Unfortunately the weather forecast looks bad for next weekend, so I am not sure if I can activate any summits there. I will put an alert on the possible activations anyway. I hope that you can see where I am from aprs.fi.
