December/January Activity

1 min read

Several bicycle mobile trips out on the promenade here in Blackpool over the lock-down period for exercise and recreation on my own of course.

Long path activity has been very good into the Pacific area on both 20M and 40M SSB with many contacts into VK, ZL, JA and the mid Pacific Islands between 08:00 and 10:00 UTC.

Also operations in an afternoon with good propagation on 20m into USA, Canada and Africa most days.

I have heated clothing and so I am able to go out in all weathers fortunately, with most operations made whilst on the move.

The coil shown in one of the pictures below is my 40M loading coil for my smaller 17ft vertical, I use a full sized 33ft vertical for 40M when the weather is calm.
