My second activation of Blankenhalde, this time together with DC1SAF.
Wx: Sunny, few clouds, approx. 25°C, light winds
Walking time: almost zero – drive on location
Ascent/ descent: approx. few vertical metres
Rig: KX3 / 10W, 7.2Ah SLAB, Palm Mini Paddle, Belcom LS202E / 3W for VHF
Ant: EFHW dipole w/ QRP-L-Tuner as inverted L on a 10m squid pole, MFJ1714 for VHF
Condx seemed to be good. DC1SAF worked one station from NA on 20 metres.
k = 1, SFI = 77
12 QSOs on 2m FM, 11 x S2S
14 QSOs on 40m CW
12 QSOs on 60m CW, 7 x S2S
2 QSOs on 60m SSB, 1 x S2S
– First CW SOTA activation of DC1SAF
– Because of the HB9SOTA-weekend an incredible number of Swiss activators was QRV. Many of them could be worked on 2m FM with my old Belcom LS202E and about 3 watts output power.
– Great aerial views of the summit thanks to Fabian’s quadrocopter
