I’ll be on a business trip in Portugal on Monday, April 20th.
It’s not 100% sure but I’ll try to activate an 8 pointer CT/BL-004 and the 4 pointer new unique CT/BL-017 on Monday 20/04/2015 afternoon-evening.
Both seem to have quite an easy access and they are more or less in my way back from Agueda to Porto after my work meeting.
It will be my first activation in CT and should I be able to finish not too late my business meeting and go to the not too far mountains to activate, I hope you’ll be there to chase me and let me qualify the summits.
To avoid any issues at the airport controls or in the mountains, I’ll carry a copy of my CEPT license.
As for antenna, I’m in doubt on whether taking the 20m band mobile GP antenna I’ve been using lately with success or just a piece of wire to be connected to the long wire connector of my MFJ antenna tunner.
The wire inside my rucksack should be easier to pass through the airport controls and inside the cabin with my hand luggage, rather than a 1.3m stiff plastic tube and about that same length of the GP antenna.
Problem is that I’m not sure whether I’ll find some trees in those 2 summits where the wire can be hang from.
The battery will be a SLAB, so I don’t think there will be any issue with it being with me in the passengers compartment. What do you think?
Any ideas, comments, advises will be welcome.
Thanks and best 73 de Guru.
