The Elba vacation has finished... Now I am in Firenze but no unpacking the radio... The hotel policy do not allowed radio operation from room.
This evening i will be in Bologna in order to catch the fly to Bucharest tomorrow morning.
I will post my consideration from Elba operations here on a separate post.
Also, on fotografiamea.blogspot.com I will post some of the most beautiful pictures i take in this vacation.
Between 21st of July to 27th of July, I will be on vacation on
I will work on SSB on 7.060 Mhz, 14.260, 18.128, 21.260, 24.950, 28.460 and 28.560 MHz and 50.110Mhz , under the callsign:
The rig :
-Alinco DM-330MVE power supply for full 100W output;
-Horizontal wire dipole for NVIS on 40m and multiband;
-LDG Z-100 Automatic antenna tuner;
-IBM Thinkpad X40 for logbook.
To confirm a QSO, I will use e-qsl service and a special printed QSL Card.
I will also confirm SWL reports via Bureau.
I don't know yet if the QSL card will be sent direct or via Bureau. TBAL.
I don't know if I will have a reliable internet connection but If so, the e-qsl will be sent instantly direct from HRD Logbook.
I will try to setup the antenna for NVIS operation on 40m band in order to give a chance for close european stations to have a QSO with me.
You can ask for sked here, by a short comment. I will try to make the qso's according to this sked askings.
Remember that I am in holiday so... don't be angry if I skip a sked! Please...
