On Monday November the 5th I will try to activate PAFF-057 “Nieuwkoopse Plassen”. ( New One ).
All is depending on the weather, there is a lot of rain expected.
Extra handicap is that this reference is nearly all water and the banking of the roads are not valid. So if there is not dry spot, I have to rent a boat or wait until it is frozen…….
As usual I try to use +/-7.144 KHz and !4.244 KHZ ssb.
I expect to be QRV after 1300 UTC, and I have to go QRT before 15.30 UTC. Temperature, wind and rain can shorten my activity.
I always activate PAFF by foot, and in this case I have to do this also, it looks like there is no road or parking inside the reference.
