For anyone interested, Paul - NA5N has updated the QRP To The Field (QRPTTF) information on the web. And it looks like he has included operation timed for Europe as well. So as if you need a reason to get on the air, here is something to look forward to.
Vy73 – Mike – KD5KC – El Paso, TX.
Normally I take my telescopic mast with me on the mountain and use it to pull up a vertical one, which I operate with one radial. This is quick and … works.
I always wanted to compare the performance to a “real” antenna and built a quadloop for 20m.
I will be at DM/BW-009 on Saturday at 12 UTC.
I will be QRV from the home QTH using my 20m / 17m vertical with 4 radials. Hopefully I will be able to work over the pond with this set up, but will have to put up with a much higher noise level than when on a summit. Let’s hope conditions are favourable.
73, Gerald G4OIG
