During Easter I visited my mother in the northern part of the Netherlands. In her house is a ZEPP for 30M hanging, on the topfloor. Normally I span the last few meters via the window to the end of the garden. This time I put the last few meters to the floor in the attic.
I brought my Q5 30M transmitter and wanted to see whether the signal would be heard by someone.
The next project is a switchbox to connect a seperate tx and rx to an antenna.
I gave a CQ several times on 10.116 MHz and saw that my signal was heard in Slovenia. A distance of almost 1000 km with about 250mW output. This experiment was successful.
Then I wanted to try my Rockmite 40M transceiver. On Easter Sunday there was a contest in HB9 and impossible for me to make a qso. After the contest, I made a new attempt, without success.
Always difficult with a crystal that you can not move.
I had a few successful qso's with this trx made in the past.

630M 474.200 WSPR - Terug op 630m ontvangstmatig De propagatie 630m is nog steeds vele malen slechter dan in de begintijd van deze band. Komt het nog weer goed met de lage band...
