When I´m QRV on Six, I have only a few possibilities,
as where I live, we have antenna restrictions - only use
of cable for BC and TV.
So if I have to be
QRV I have to rely on the club, friends or "portable"
So I have been QRV
from OZ1ANA, OZ4CQ and from OZ6CQ´s stations.
As well form our local branch of EDR - OZ3FYN / OZ5V, both
as such and with personal call.
During the last solar
cycle peak, mostly from my vehicle, with a 5 element Yagi
up four or eight meter´s (mostly only four meters
- as support wires then not are needed)
Rig used on 50 MHz is usually an IC-706 Mk I, which is performing
well at 50 MHz and it have given quite satisfactory results
in both DX´ing and Contesting with its 100 watt output.
As shown on the picture,
the radio is mounted on the dashboard in my vehicle.
The cabin acts as radio
shack under these operations.
My contest QTH is at Trebjerg 128 m.asl. Trebjerg is situated
in the southern part of the island of Fyn, north of the
city of Fåborg. The WW locator is JO 55 CE.
From here I have
a clear horizon except to the north-east. Especially the
southern directions are fine with a water front to the south-west
Normally I have a
range of at least 500 Km. with my 100 watt and the 2 * 5
element yagis, I use during Contesting.
