Due to my chronical pain disease I’m not able to go hiking anymore. On the way searching for some activity in nature I discovered the WWFF program.
Today I activated ONFF-320 Kwarekken Westerlo, one that’s never been activated before. I had a hard time finding a place reachable by car. And the sign of “Kwarekken” is not inside the park … just outside … But we made it !
In about 1,5 hour I made 145 QSO’s in 22 DXCC. An average of 97 QSO’s per hour … not bad ! Had to stop earlier as planned, the pain came up to heavy. Probably will go here again in the future.
The eQSLs are already fired out, the log is on the way to WWFF.
Note that I will have printed QSL cards soon (with the help from DJ6OI, thanks brother!). Paper QSL only on reply (buro & direct) or request a buro QSL via email : dannyATon4vt.be
Some photo impressions of today :
What did we learn today ?
1. I’m getting my operating skills in pile up handling back … 97 QSO/hour is not bad I think
2. Many stations really have a bad modulation and are using strange codes for their callsign, using the NATO phonetic alphabet would make it all a lot easier …
3. My portable setup is doing well (more on it later on this blog)
4. WWFF is big fun !
See you on my next activation !
