This morning was a clear and sunny day here in JN53, but definitely too windy to be comfortable both for me and my telescopic whip antennas. Well, at least all stuff is ready for use, batteries are charged, a good location for portable operation has been identified in the hills behind Livorno, so now it is only matter of waiting for good weather conditions, hopefully in the coming week.

Hi all,

unless blocked by higher priorities, I will perform my very first tx tests next Sunday in the morning from JN53 (portable operation).

Current plan is to use first a ground plane antenna (approx. 7.30-8.30 UTC) then a rotatable dipole (approx. 8.30-9.30 UTC for the N-S direction, 9.30-10.30 UTC for the E-W direction).

The G0UPL Ultimate2 beacon kit will be used for transmission, continuously running following sequence of modes/frequencies, with callsign IZ5WWB:

WSPR 28126,850 kHz
QRSS (FSKCW) 28000,850 kHz
CW 28280,800 kHz
