VHF MAY 2020 – DF7EE
Our local radio club F27 decided to use the COVID-19 rules for the DARC CM* to play a litle bit for a good position in 2020. The big difference is – that in 2020 ALL logs will be counted and not just the best 4 (!). This has motivaded a lot of people even with small and very small VHF setups to join the game and have fun! So did i ……
One single 9 emelemt Tonna Yagi and 100w out of the IC-9700. No rotator unfortunatly, just up 2 stairs from the cellar turn the antenna – down to stairs and continue to play radio. Fantastic drill for the weekend.
My son Timothy showed up a few times, but this time, he did not want to operate himself … maybe next time.
To keep things as simple as possible I used Wincontest from DD3KU again and it worked fine as always!
The conditions, especially on day one were very poor and so I failed to reach my goal of 15.000 points.
With my location and the antenna on the balcony the pattern has some white spots. The whole north to north-west is blocked out from my QTH, but it was fun anyway.
Thanks to all the stations copied my tiny signal!
