Second activation of PAFF-067 by PH0NO

Revisiting Planken Wambuis

Today on my way home I was able to activate Planken Wambuis PAFF-067. It was already activated two weeks ago by Hans PA3FYG but activity level was not very high at the time.

The forest was brilliant with the autumn coloured leaves all over place. It was rather wet and muddy (antenna pole and wires need a good rinse). The weather was good.
On the radio it was not too busy due to weak conditions. I worked on 15m, 20m and 40m. 15m was already closing by the time I started. I could just copy a K0 from Kansas who set the maximum QRB for this activity to 7350km.

All in all I logged 107 calls from 25 DXCCs in 2 hours time (effective radio time about 90 minutes). A couple of OMs made it on two bands, only Luciano I5FLN came by on all three bands.
