[Article 145]Almost two years have passed… PE1MR in the field again.

As I have neglected this blog for too long, some pictures made during the weekend of the 6th, 7th and 8th of September 2013. Still waiting for the pictures of the Whisky Oscar Fieldday on the 7th of September. Update 22/10/2013 – finally got them!

RandstadVos (Randstad Radio Fox Hunt) –  HAM radio field setup

TRX: FT-897D with internal PSU, powered by a 220V power generator.
ANT: Fritzel FD-4 for 10, 15, 17, 20, 40, 80 meter band (even a decent SWR <1.1 on 6 meter band!) // Solarcon Antron 99 vertical antenna for 10 and 12 meter band.

6th of September – During the radio fox hunt on the 6th of September near the town of Bodegraven some decent DX contacts were made on the 10 meter and 20 meter band. The A-99 was towering at 24 meter coil height.
The 1:6 balun of the FD-4 not ideally between the branches.
For the 2 meter and 70 cm band, we used a Diamond X30 on a short stacking mast.
8th of September – PE1MR/p during a radio fox hunt (ARDF) in the town of Zoetermeer, Western Netherlands. The A-99 at 15 meter coil height.
