VHF QRP indoor
« on: November 10, 2016, 17:13:35 UTC »
Last Marconi Memorial i tested a bit with my FT-817ND. Don´t have had a 2m Yagi or Vertical so i tried only with the original rubber whip in my shack .... ODX to F6HPP/P between JN19GP and JO30TK with 332 km :-) :-)

Thank´s Dave .... Have also had a few good ES contacts at 6m to EA6. EA3 and IT9 with simple wires in the shack. In the near future i will build a duoband DK7ZB yagi for 2m/70cm and a 3-Element DK7ZB for 6 m indoor use.  ;D ;D

Not to much place here but i think the chances to push up my ODX´s on 2/70 will be much better. My ODX on 6 m was 2 times W4 a dew years ago with 5w into a indoor delta loop in my attic in my old QTH in JO30SR ....  ;D ;D

Hello Juergen,

Well done, Juergen, as I said somewhere in this forum, you never know what you  will or can  do,
with simple antennas.


I found this in my antennas documents. It is simple, has some gain and can be use in vertical or horizontal polarization.

According to the photo, It fit in a standard window.

Try this one, and let us know how it works for you, sure you should have great dx fun QRP.

Have a nice week,

I love QRP/QRPp & CW
