Title: Radio Vacation, March 2018.
Post by: gil on March 22, 2018, 09:45:28 am
Hi guys. I am leaving at 3AM for Tenerife in the Canary Islands. My KX2 is coming along, with the QRPGuys 17ft vertical antenna (four 10ft radials). I tested it in my backyard and it seems to work great. Unfortunately my Weber Slop Bucket radio does not work (yet)... Last year I was not able to make any contact from the same island, which is really surprising. It is far from everything... Watch the reverse beacon network for EA8/AK4YH this week-end and during the week.

It's a bit too "touristy" for me but it will be nice to get away from the cold for a week...
