A step backwards to go forward.

Today Kees PA3BWD, Ronald PA3EWP, Dervin PD9DX, Ton PA1CC, Richard PD4RD and Alex PA1AW spent their day taking down the 4 1/2 element 20m yagi and removing the damaged rotator from the tower. An productive day in preparation for new antennas to come.

28 january 2021

Derk PD9DX activated the PI4COM station once again on 40 and 20m.

He had fun all day between curfew hours, 300+ qso’s, all SSB.

The map below explains why…. 40m is Red and 20m in Orange


Our traditional kick-off of the contest season is the CQWWRTTY. This year apart from the usual technical issues we also had to consider Covid-19 as a competitor but with our “stand-alone” shacks this is not very hard to do.
The team this year: Kees PA3BWD, Ronald PA3EWP, Florian PB8DX, Joeri PD0W, Dennis PA7FM and Alex PA1AW. A nice mixture of experienced contesters and rookies.

It was a contest as we had many before: Heavy rain and wind during station built, fun, broken amplifier, fun, new antennas, fun, long shifts, fun, learning on the job, fun, smoke from bandfilter, fun, etc., fun

We like to thank all who called us. Cu next time ?¿
