I tried to participate in the activity day of the “Dresdner UKW Runde” (DUR) last sunday.
So i drove to the Bayerhoehe (JO61RB) which is some km west of Dresden close to Wilsdruff.
Testing the equipment one day before gave me a good feeling but unfortunately the RX/TX relay of the transverter did not switch reliably with the 12V battery supply.
So i was just able to do two qso. Also the antenna was a bit tiny. So i have to look for a small Yagi before the next test. What worked fine was the antenna rotor driven by a 12V to 220V switched converter.
