On September 5th of this year I wrote about the fieldday contest. During this contest, I made in about 3 hours 31 QSOs with QRP. In the QRP section, I was unfortunately the only participant. It was inevitable that they sent me the certificate belonging to the first place.Next year I expect more competition.

Last weekend was the CQWW CW contest. The condition in recent weeks are a lot better, especially on 10M.
Yesterday I setup my FT817nd on the dinner table with on the rear the ATX-1080 antenna. There were plenty of signals and have the preamp turned off.
I made 2 QSOs with European Russia and one with N3RS in the USA. Unfortunately I managed not to work W3LPL, the station where PB2T was a guest operator.

  1. Hallo Tjeerd, mooi certificaat. Misschien moet ik ook maar eens meedoen. Heb ondertussen wel 1 en ander voor QRP portable gebruik. 73, Bas

  2. Bas,

    Het kan heel eenvoudig en het plezier is enorm.

    Mooi weer werkt natuurlijk ook mee.
