70 MHz Cumulative #4

Portable operating in the summer can be one of the main attractions of contesting. Not only do you get the chance to enjoy the summer, but a chance to try things you cant do at home.

Like many, home comes with a considerable amount of man made noise, operating in the middle of a field solves that!

On this occasion we had setup around 1hr before the contest, so had enough time to call CQ and have a chat with other stations setting up for the contest.

The contest lasted 2 hrs, and the first 60 minutes provided close on 40 QSO. The second hr wasn’t so busy, I guess we had worked most of the stations taking part.

We worked 48 stations in total, best DX was MM0CEZ at 554 KM.

The QSO map can be found here. The claimed scores can be seen here.
