We left spring solstice a week behind already, but unfortunately TEP is not so strong as expected. Of course several stations have been heard already as FR4NT,3B8CF,V51YJ and several ZS6. But those are the usual suspects. It seams that the second peak of cycle 24, predicted in previous post, it is late if it ever comes.
Last weekend we were occupied with the usual spring repairs in second QTH of SV8CS. In the photo you can see SV8KOU, SV8CS,SV8DOU (left to right). I call it the “periscope”, as it is located on the top of a hill 560m high and absolutely open 360 degree around. Keep in mind that it covers all bands from 160m to 70cm and it is fully remote operated. Powered by 800AH batteries or fuel generator if need it, it is a very respectable tool indeed. Now we are loaded with the finger on the trigger. The only thing we need is the target!
