Location portable in JO01CM, ASL 20m, Operating time 2 Hrs, Temp +1C
Operating alfresco in the UK Christmas Cumulative Contest with John M0UKD from Hornchurch country park. Located in JO01 at a height of just 20m ASL. Using a Icom 7100 battery powered, with a push up mast at 6m. The antenna was a UKD designed 6E pegtenna, with a gain of 9.3 dBd.
We worked 43 stations, with our best DX 280km into Wales GW8ASD.
Other highlights included working into JO03 (quite rare) and ON5AEN (JO10) in Belgium.
A map showing the QSO is available here.
Altogether a most enjoyable afternoon operating in the afternoon sun.
73 Dave M0TAZ, John M0UKD
