Hello and Welcome!

Hello and welcome! I'm Dzianis, a licensed radio ham holding the callsign DD1LD. I love to take this hobby with me wherever I may roam. The blog "QTC de DD1LD" means "Messages From Me" and reflects my ham radio activities and projects. I barely have time to write everything down, so I blog occasionally, and mainly, for myself.

After-work-activation of DLFF-0756

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.

Short statistics:
  • Operating time: ~2.5 hours
  • 40m - 100 QSO, 80m - 24 QSO, 20m - 11 QSO, 30m - 5 QSO
  • CW - 106 QSO (76%), SSB - 34 QSO (24%)
  • Unique callsigns: 125 
  • P2P: 4
  • WWFF Activator Award Points: 3
Mni tnx all chasers fer QSO!
