Portable in the RSGB Christmas Cumulative

Location portable in JO01CM, ASL 20m, Operating time 2 Hrs, Temp +1C


Operating alfresco in the UK Christmas Cumulative Contest with John M0UKD from Hornchurch Country Park. Located in JO01 at a height of just 20m ASL. Using a Icom 7100 battery powered, with a push up mast at 6m. The antenna was a UKD designed 6E pegtenna, with a gain of 9.3 dBd.


We worked 43 stations, with our best DX 280km into Wales GW8ASD.

Other highlights included working into JO03 (quite rare) and ON5AEN (JO10) in Belgium.

map showing the QSO is available here.

A most enjoyable afternoon operating in the afternoon sun.
