not forgotten to blog...

But it will be better when there is some radio activities to report. Weather has been great so it has been OK outdoors putting in the electricity supply to the house and radio shack. I expect faster progress when there is power in the shack without running the generator all the time.

OH6MAZ asked just how bad is the take-off to the North-East for OH/SM? Here is a picture, the grey hill in the distance is about 230masl which is 80m higher than the top of my antenna. The G4JNT programme says take-off angle is +0.5 to +1 degree to Scandinavia, I hope I will be able to work some stuff in that direction but will always be thinking of the old site in IO94ea when I could SEE 80km which was pretty useful for Auroras.

Thanks Tim,
Seems to me that the takeoff is actually not bad at all, but since OH is so far, even that faraway mountain is a problem...
