Backpack eme

There are rumours about that an eme contact between W5RZ and DL7APV was completed this weekend using a backpack station. No other details yet.

It’s feasible using a single Yagi (19elel) and about 150W on 70cms using JT65 (or some other such mode).

You’d need:
70cms trx
150W+ PA
tablet/laptop
batteries.

Probably you can do it with less uplink if the other station is a serious EME station.

On Sat Sept. 8th I could Work Tom MX0CNS with his DIPOL!!! & 60w easy -27/-21

That about sums up the required equipment.
