29-10-2023 My first Pota activation in a park next to our little vilage.
Unfortonaly this weekend is also a CQWW contest so the whole band was full.
So as a low power station is this fas from ideal. After 8 contacts i stopped the activation because there where stations who i think did not hear me came on the frequenty i use. and other free spot i did not find.
Of course this was a first test to look if my equipment was good enough. And it was . Signal reports where resonoble good. from a 5 by 6 to a 5/9 with a dipole G5RV junior and 10 watss.
Radio is a Icom ic-705 wich i buy a week a go.
We try to do it again very soon if the weather is better. Because there is a lot of wind.
Park was PA-0079 Eilands polder provincial park near De Rijp NH JO22JN
