First 6M qso's from JO22NB

Last Saturday I built up my 6 meter station for the first time. This means the mobile 1/4 whip on the balcony, put on a metal table and the coax connected to my FT817nd.
The balcony is about 13 meters above street level

With 5 watts SSB I worked with YL2IP & IS0BSR/P. 2 qso's about 1400 km away from JO22NB.

Not bad for the first qso's from this new location.

  1. Hoi Tjeerd, dat is dan meteen raak, goed dat je weer in de lucht bent. 73 Paul

  2. Hallo Paul,

    Ik realiseer dat het grootste gedeelte van het Es seizoen voorbij is. Kijken we er nog lukt.
    Binnenkort nog een dipool voor 6M maken.

    Het begin is er in ieder geval.

    73, Tjeerd

  3. Good evening Tjeerd, nice to hear from you again as for 6m that is still a mystery to me. It's nice to read of your success and with the bands the way they are it seems to be one of the only hopping bands.
