The last time I made a QSO (two-way radioamateur contact) was 11 days ago (on 2022.12.27). Today afternoon I made the first in 2023 with a Spanish special radioamateur station (EF2WRTC) on 21.245 MHz.
I went through the pileup with 100 Watt and with the 30 meters long wire antenna above four or five meters above the ground in the garden.
WRTC stands for World Radiosport Team Championship.
The propagation was good. I heard him with S8. He heard me with S9.
My transceiver: Yaesu FT-450D.
Transmitting power: 100 Watts.
My current antenna is a 30 meters long wire antenna, four or five meters above the ground in the garden.
My current QTH (the location of my radioamateur station) is Tiszasüly (KN07EJ), Hungary. EF2WRTC is located somewhere in Spain. The distance is around 2000 km.
I am a licensed radioamateur since 2012.01.16 (my callsign is HA5KZO), so I am transmitting legally.
Happy New Year.
Have a nice day and have a nice weekend.
All the best. Greetings and much love from Hungary.
