DA0CW/p activation DLFF-060 07.May2011




We were long time thinking about make it or not. There was another activation from here just one week ago but finally we decided to make it and the decision was well. After arriving in Nature Park Frankenwald we started to assemble antennas and equipment around 0600 utc. We used double-dipoles for 40/20 and 30/17 meters plus a dipole for 15 meters. The team this time consisted by Günther DC2RK with his perfect fieldday-trailer full-packed with different masts and tools, Josef DO6RZ made PSK31 with his FT950, Xaver DK4RM gave out DLFF-060 on 30 and 17 meter with his FT990 and Manfred DF6EX with FT2000D on 40 and 20 meter.
After a slow begin at 0658UTC on 20meters we moved to 40 and had a real good run especially on CW. Propagation also improved and our top hour was between 09 and 10 utc with 162 QSOs. In phone there was lot of activity also from other WFF-operations so we used the CW-portions without contest very effective and made 60 percent of the QSO in this mode.
First contact was EW6AF at 0658 UTC and the last in our log was DL1RMJ at 1137. So the 629 QSO with 585 different stations were not too bad and we finally were very satisfied and left the area.

Additional WFF-report which we write for all our activations to the WFF can be viewed here.
