Planned activities by PG7V and PH0NO - June 7 & 8

Activating the last remaining "new one" and one or two "most wanted" references

Joining GreenParty 2013 this Saturday June 8, JanJaap PG7V will travel to the last unactivated PAFF nature park: PAFF-071, De Boschplaat. This nature reserve is located on the island of Terschelling, IOTA EU-038.

JanJaap will be working QRP with his FT-817 and MP1 antenna in CW and SSB.

Preceding this activity PH0NO will be active Friday June 7 from one or possibly two "most wanted" PAFF areas in the north of PA. First park will be PAFF-029 - De Velden - and when propagation is good enough the second park on the list is PAFF-001 - NP Olde Feanen.

PG7V was active from PAFF-064 (IOTA EU-038)

CW operation during field day contest from PAFF-064
During the weekend of 1 and 2 june 2013 JanJaap PG7V was QRV from the island of Vlieland, EU-038. A part of the island is a nature reserve with reference PAFF-064. This was the first activation of this reference.

It is not allowed to take a car on to the island so JanJaap brought his stuff (radio + tent) by bicycle. He worked QRP and although he tried some SSB he only logged CW contacts.
