Hi Martin,

A nice movie and pictures,
On 40 m band (QSB but fine copy) and also at 20 m band I have heard several stations I,DL,LA,G,S5 ect … calling you but no copy from your side. 17 m band the conditions nil here … no whisper … zero/nothing.
About your antenna test: few minutes before our QSO I came in the shack and switch on the pc and TxRx and heard you calling … I have no rapport about the difference between your antennas. Perhaps next time.

Until next time and video.

o.k. thank you luc for the information. i heard no one calling on 20m and 17m! hopefully condx will get better in the next months!

Hello Martin,

I have ‘honoured your work’ and found the experience enjoyable! Your backing music was good and I heard some callsigns that I know well from my SOTA ops. The summit looks nice; the trees must help with antenna support but also can screen signals a little on some frequencies. I sometimes wish we had trees on SOTAs here. You carried a lot of equipment up with you; the fact that you also had some energy left over for making and editing a video is admirable and provides an insight for us. I noticed your IC706; the same as mine.

Keep up the good work,

thank you very much for your reply and your kind words! i’m glad you like the music in my videos … i try to select relatively unknown artists, in this case an austrian band and an iclandic musician!

i’m sorry … but i have to tell you that it is a ic-703 (qrp 10w) in the video! i like this trx vy much und i do not regret buying it. as an antenna i used a buddipole with a tripod … so trees not needed. maybe in the future i will make a wire-dipole? will make it a little easier to carry!
