Video of SV/AT-006 activation


#1

I enjoyed activating SV/AT-006 near Athens, Greece this weekend, December 15th. Initially cold on the summit, but after the sun came out, a very nice day.
Thanks for all who made the effort copying my fairly crappy CW. :slight_smile:

This day resulted in a nice, short activation video, including a demonstration on assembling the MP-1 superantenna. Check it out on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ndUHDBobJUQ

Best 73 to you all!

Cheers,

Wil,

Leuke video. 30 meter is altijd goed 😄

Hoop je ooit te werken op een SOTA activatie. Op 30 meter…

Hi Tonnie,

Dank voor je reactie. Ging idd een stuk beter op 30m. Die band is ook makkelijker met de radialen voor de MP-1. Ik probeer om ze op iets minder dan 1/4L te houden. :slight_smile:

Vast een keer tot werkens.

Vrgr,
Wil

Hej Wil,

Looked at your video and can only say that if that was “crappy CW” then I can only wish that my CW was as crappy as yours!!!

Nice video. Next time please tell the cameraman to include the operator so that I can see what kind of key/paddle your are using and where you mount or hold it.

73,

Hi Larry, thanks for your kind remarks. Well, I still make mistakes when doing CW. But, it is somewhat more difficult in the field when compared to the comfortable desk at home. :slight_smile:

Good suggestion for the camera position. The camera man was, this time my trustworthy Gorilla tripod. So, that is fairly fixed. But, @a previous activation my daughter was camera girl. And she did film my CW. So, if you want you can check it out.

Cheers and best 73s,
