Activation report DM/BW-110

Hi everyone,

here is a brief activation report from yesterday on DM/BW-110 (Limburg)

September 21st 2019; 13:25 – 15:10 UTC
Wx: sunny, approx. 20°C
Ascent/ descent: 200m from/ to parking lot.
Rig: KX3 / 10W, 7.2Ah AGM, Palm Pico Paddle
Ant: EFHW Dipole (40m, 30m, 20m) as inverted L on a 6m GRP Pole

4 CW QSOs on 20m
3 CW QSOs on 30m
21 CW QSOs on 40m
1 CW QSO on 60m

Limburg was inadvertently removed from the summit list in the beginning of 2016 as part of the introduction of P150 in DM. It was reinstated in summer of 2017 after I pointed this out to the MT.

Conditions seemed to be very good according to the many RBN spots I got. The activation was probably hampered by the CW part of SAC which took place at that time.
On the way back I met a strikingly large group of mountain goats :wink:

It was lots of fun again. Thanks for the QSOs, cu from the next one.

Thanks for the QSO Roman, it was one of those rare occasions where I was tuning 40m and heard you calling before you were spotted. Lots of noise my end, but your /P caught my attention :smile:

… it is always a pleasure to QSO, Adrian!
I had two QSOs on 40m before yours but then a contest station started CQing on top of me. So I moved a few hundred Hertz down and started calling there. You were the first to find me - before RBN did :slight_smile:
