[Article 227]Whisky Oscar Field Day

In the same weekend as the two radio fox hunts from the RandstadVos, on Saturday the 7th of September the Whisky Oscar DX Group using the call PI4WO organized a field day in which I participated as they needed more fully licensed radio amateurs 😉 Some very nice DX contacts were made: Asiatic Russia, near the Bering Sea, China, Japan and some other distant countries.

TRX: Kenwood TS-590S @ 100W.
