Abstract

January 5, 2021  11:00 – 11:40 UTC // 13:10 – 14:20 UTC
My third activation of Burg and my fourth activation of Heersberg, both first time during winter.

Wx: Cloudy, approx. -4°C light winds
Condx were average with QSB on 20 and 30 metres. k = 2, SFI = 78

Rig: KX3 / 10W,  2.5 Ah Li-Ion battery (4S), Palm Mini Paddle
Ant: 42 ft (12.8m) random wire as inverted L on a tree

DM/BW-058

Walking time: 20 min. up, 15 min. down
Ascent/ descent: approx. 90 vertical metres
Total weight of the (radio) equipment:  2647g

34 QSOs on 40m CW, 2 x S2S
1 QSOs on 60m SSB, 1 x S2S
Weight per QSO: 75.6g

DM/BW-064

Walking time: 25 min. up, 15 min. down
Ascent/ descent: approx. 60 vertical metres
Total weight of the (radio) equipment:  3219g

5 QSOs on 20m CW, 3 x DX
12 QSOs on 30m CW
9 QSOs on 40m CW, 1 x S2S
9 QSOs on 60m CW
Weight per QSO: 92g

Highlight:
On BW-058, after chasing two other activators for S2S-QSOs on 40 CW I didn’t even have to call CQ when I started my own activation. I went to a free frequency and asked: „QRL?“. Immediately, somone was asking: „3TU?“  It was SP9AMH (needless to say). SA4BLM followed suit. Only then the hordes arrived. Well done, my friends!

Lowlight:
The situation on the often crowded 60 metre band is spoiling the fun. Deliberate QRM is getting worse. My run on CW came to an end because a very strong DL station started a rag chew on SSB right on top of my QSOs. (Remember that we’re allowed only 15 watts EIRP!)

How to get there?

Activation report:

Due to the currently large number of activations I just put a couple photos here.

It was lots of fun. Thanks for the QSOs!
