PG4I travelling through Europe

<< < (2/3) > >>

I made a total of 9 QSO's this afternoon. Ukraine on 20 and OK, SP, DL, F and LY on 40. First time I have used the endfed, nice antenna! When the sun was going down I was observing the Reverse Beacon Network when calling CQ and was heard as far as Wales and Sweden on 40 meters.

So, I hope to activate I0/PG4I/P next...

Here is a picture of me in my little outdoor shack!

Good going Joop! BTW I think I've I've got the same shirt :-)

 ;D It's a Tenson shirt Dave...

I might be staying in SV8 in a couple of weeks, one of your hangouts. Either on Corfu or Lefkada.

I am now at Lago di Trasimeno near the town of Passignano, callsign I0/PG4I/P. I have spent some time on 40 yesterday, propagation picks up at around 17.00 GMT due to atmospheric absorption, which is about 2 hours later compared to Northern Italy. Did not expect that and it might get worse the more south we get..

Stations from Germany are the strongest here and it is mostly north/south contacts I hear. I would have expected more stations from across the Adriatic sea but I hear more stations from Spain. We will move to the west coast in a couple of days, let's see what that gives...

Propagation on 20 is still very bad  :-\

I must confess, travelling and operating a radio station does not go very well together. I can hardly find the time to unpack all the radio equipment and put up an antenna unless we stay at one place for a couple of days...

We have arrived in Sicily on may 1st. On the North coast, near Milazzo I have done some listening on 20 meters. Signals from the middle East are much stronger then at home I noticed.

We are now at the South coast, near Menfi. The Reverse Beacon Network picks up my signal okay, but at fairly low levels. Hope to make some contacts here.
