OH/KU-024 or OH/JS-008 Välimäki activation today

The Välimäki 315 m is an old summit with a new reference OH/JS-008 in the updated OH ARM. I was not aware that the summit database has already the new summits from the more careful analysis done by OH6FQI last January so I used the old reference for this summit. I hope it did not make too much confusion.

The ground and bushes were wet from the rain during the night. I was walking in a cloud of mosquitos and small flyes. The QRM here has been high S9+ on 40 m band, but the propagation to SM was good enough to make some QSOs. Other DXCCs today UA, G and DL. Looks like the space wx has been quite stormy today. As usual I called on 17 m, 20 m, 30 m and 40 m without self spotting (only modest Nokia phone).

Radio: ATS3B.1, 8xAA, T1 ATU, loop 10 x 7 m
