We are ready for it

Next weekend it’s IARU contest time again.

With pa1pat and Coen we will setup a portable station again, as we have always done.

Using an Icom IC746 and a FD5 longwire of about 80 meters long we try to have lots of fun during the contest. Our goal is to reach over 500 QSO’s in the 24 hour long contest using the single TX and only 100W.

The contest starts on 2011-07-09 1200UTC and runs for 24 hours. That’s 14:00 localtime.

The running call sign is unknown at the moment, can be mine (pa1ton), Patricks (pa1pat) or the Nijmegen club call (pi4nym). Changes are rather big that it the prefix will be with pa1.

The place where it all happens is JO21xs.

Hope to hear you in the contest.
