|This is "our" camping group... getting bigger and bigger|
|Lovely billabong for swimming|
The radio reception is great, absolutely no RF noise. Can hear well, however it is not the best for DX. For the first time I used my folding hex beam and it worked well.
This year the CQ WPX SSB contest had fallen on Easter weekend and I "tried" to give out a few numbers. Did not do very well, because the other activities: Cycling, walking, swimming, drinking and sitting around the camp fire disrupted the contest intent.
It was the first time I've used electric rotator in the field, feeding the controller from a small inverter. It worked rather well. I used beam (Spiderbeam) in portable situation before, but turned in manually. This is new for me and it is going to be good in future.
