DM/BW-057 – Lupfen – 977m


April 14, 2017  12:30 – 13:00 UTC
Partly cloudy, approx. 11°C
Walking time 10 min. up, 10 min. down

Rig: KX3 / 5W, 2200mAh LiPo, Palm Pico Paddle
Ant: End Fed Half Wave Dipole with Traps (40m – 30m – 20m) sloping from the tower down to the trees.

4 CW QSOs on 20m, 4 CW QSOs on 30m, 22 CW QSOs on 40m

Lupfen can be reached from the car park (Wanderparkplatz) north of Talheim. The trail leads straight to the east, up the hill.
When I reached the summit, the last visitors had left the tower. So I decided to set up my shack at the top, the antenna sloping down into the trees. Conditions seemed to have further improved, thus the number of QSOs was even higher than on Hummelskopf.

After the activation I took a short break in the sunshine before I headed to the last destination of the day, Lindenberg (DM/BW-156).
