POTA activation of DA-0034 on the FeldbergHam Radio POTA
Yesterday I was able to succesfully activate POTA park “Taunus Nature Park” on the Feldberg near Frankfurt.
The following was my gear during the portable operation:
- Yaesu FT-817
- DIY 6600mAh 4s LiPo battery
- modified mic with built in voice keyer (BX-184)
- self made 1/4 wave vertical antenna for 20m
- 7m Spiderbeam mini mast
Due to the weather conditions, I only operated for one hour in total but I’ve made 22 SSB contacts on 20m from which four were DX and one was a park 2 park to Iceland. All this with just 5W - which was amazing!
This was my QTH this day:
