the next two days i´m on tour in the black forest and swabian alps.
will do some summits if wx stays ok .will try to do only first activations.
but signal strenght is maybe lower as “normal”.
will do sota and walking/running these days. that means i can´t carry
a mast or big slabs. so qrp again with my long longwire and qrp.
qrg´s as spotted on spotlite then, that means in that order i send it
…>…>…- if too much qrm i spot an other qrg or call up or down 5.
in the last time i was a bit more active due to that i found a new ,interesting for me, hobby. i work normal one day late and one day early.
in the morning-work weeks and by nice wx i do some sports and sota in one time,but can´t carry big rigs with me then,and also no fiber-mast.need my
hands at the walking poles most used rigs are the k2 or my homebrew speaky.
both can produce >10watt in mostly a longwire in the trees. but with a good
techniqe i can hang it up abt. 15-20m in the trees .last activations i run
only 5watt in a 80m-longwire with a z-match at high-z feedpoint.
another info : at weekdays i have normaly enough time on the summits
but like very much the fast qso style at the beginning on 40m-cw.
at DM/BW-252 i try´ed to work in qrs at abt. 18wpm. and the result was
that after the activation i had over 100 qso´s in my log with many new ones
i never worked before.and that as a qrp-station with a lw. may it was the qrs
that produces many new ones !? but the “funny” thing was , that also qrq-stations and regulars called me then in qrs. thats ok, but you can also call qrq.
i made the qrs calls only for beginners and new ones. all other station can call me qrq ! no problem
qro maybe again in august.but only at weekends.
it is a very good feeling after a 10h working day walk on a summit and
have hamradio-fun.what can be better to relax as a nice walk and enjoy a
