Activation of PAFF-057 by PA3FYG/P

Nieuwkoopse Plassen

Activation of Nieuwkoopse Plassen PAFF-057.

Yesterday I made a trip to PAFF-057 ( NEW )  and had  a successful activation.

I found a more ore less dry spot, after a bit of walking and filling my shoes with water…

I had a lot of rain during the 75 min drive  trip to the spot, but was very lucky during the activation, even a bit of sun and 7 degrees.

I made 175 QSOS on 20m and 75 QSOS on 40m SSB in 125 minutes.

 As usual with  backpack, FT897D ( 50W ), 12m endfed vertical ( PA3EKE ) and Lipo 5000mAH.
One battery lasted 90 minutes pile up.

Mooie activatie. Krijg zin om er ook weer 1 te doen. Dit is echt back to basic. Zoals je er zit tegen dat hek aan doet me denken aan mijn PAFF activatie van Schiermonnikoog. 73, Bas
