June 18th, 2020. Short activation report of DLFF-0756.
Spontaneously I decided to take advantage of a nice weather window and activate another New One - Hochmoor am Kesselse, DLFF-0756.
The propagation conditions were very poor. The 20/30m bands were almost useless, I wasn't even lucky this time to get a NA callsign in my log. The signals at 40m were weak and were negatively influenced by ambient noise from car traffic and QRM (from a gravel plant?). I had to struggle for every QSO. I wanted to give up after 100 QSOs but decided to do a short run in SSB on 40m and 80m. The 80m band was much quieter where I collected the last 24 QSOs with solid reports. I will keep the 80m-band as an option for future after-work-activations.
Operating location in DLFF-0756,
GPS coordinates 48°04'00.66"N 12°09'59.91"E.
Altogether I gathered 140 QSOs in ~2.5 hours of operating time. I will have to find another quieter operating place next time.
