"field evening"
« on: June 19, 2014, 12:06:00 UTC »
yesterday evening it was perfect weather for a "field evening", so I packed my bag and took a walk to a nearby field. We all know that QRP is fun and although the conditions weren't that good, yesterdays evening best was a QSO with Nick RU3FM (my rst 57 his rst 59+30) over a distance 2059 km. yep, i'm a happy puppy .

Setup : FT-817 with 2.5W in a 20/40m DIY endfed (horizontal between 2 trees aprx 8m above ground)

Note to my self : bring a aditional 12V battery pack in case you forget to fully charge the FT-817.    :-[
