Joe, good evening!
I used an FT-817 transceiver without an amplifier and a GP antenna. Together with me in the activation participated Vladimir RK8A, his grandson Albert UB9WLJ and my wife Irina. For Irina, this was one of the first experiments on radio communication:улыбка:.
The summit is located next to the house of Vladimir in the Urals Federal District. My federal district of Privolzhsky, therefore in my desire there was an additional figure designating work from territory of other federal district. Adding other abbreviations is optional. I could pass a long one “RA9WJV/8/p/QRP”, but it was too long.
The temperature at the top did not rise above minus 10 degrees, but there was no strong wind. Folding table, chairs and thermos were raised to the top by Vladimir for the convenience of work.
