sorry for my bad audio on 20m during the activation of the OK/PL-031 on Sunday. I used this time Yaesu FT-100 (70% of max. HF power = 60-70W out) powered by SLAB 12V/22Ah and inv-V antenna. The reason of the distortion was low battery voltage and maybe also low temp -6Â°C on the summit. Power consumption of the FT-100 is very high and also my battery is old… It seems the FT-100 is sensible on the power source voltage.
However I enjoyed the activation well. Thanks a lot for the very strong pile-up, specially on 40m, I made there 71QSO in 37min. Also 20m was successful. I made there N1EU, W4ZV and N4EX, where the N1EU was really 59+20dB!
Also the next activation of the near-by summit OK/PL-041 was nice. Although I used only QRP from my Yaesu FT-817, the pile-up was also nice and I made N1EU and N4EX on 20m again. Thanks for it!
73 and CU next time
