On August 10, a small team of hams and travel enthusiasts climbed the summit Yalangas R9U/SO-018. As usual, there was an off-road part that became a test of the skill of drivers and their cars)
A long period of rainy weather turned forest roads into swamps.
Already in the evening, with a delay of 2 hours from the planned time, the RX9WT / P first appeared on the air, on 14 MHz.
A little later, Marat appeared on top and picked up a microphone.
Work in the CW QRP range was prevented by loud contest signals, as it seems to me that violated the rules and recommendations.
Given the very short time left for safe descent along the rocks, our activity on the air turned out to be short.
I got 16 QSO, Marat has only one.
The sunset was approaching, we had to hurry, as there was a long descent to the camp, to the cars.
We quickly turned down our position and began to descend. Finished release already in complete darkness under the light of headlamps.
In this activation, I checked the just completed field transceiver, made on the basis of the Ukrainian SW-mini project.
In the case, a hermetically sealed cover, a CW key, a battery, headphones, a notebook and so on are also placed.
The transceiver passed the test perfectly!
