On last Sunday, we went to the KM-005 SOTA summit with Mozsó (HA2PIC), Gabesz (HA2SZG), Noybi (HA1TN), AI3iT and their girlfriends to have a picnic, test our new portable antennas and have some QSOs. The weather was absolutely perfect and we had a great time.

Noybi and I were the HF squad, Mozsó worked the VHF stations. We didn’t make too much QSOs, as we didn’t focus on that part, most of the time we only talked, ate and had fun. :)

Noybi brought a 9m vertical made from aluminium tubes with four 10m long ground plane wires, for which we didn’t have enough space on the balcony so we dropped them down to the abyss. It worked nice from 80 through 10 meters (for 28 megs it was a bit long, we couldn’t tune it under 1.5). My new portable VHF yagi worked great as well, I’ll blog about it soon.

More pics are here.
