19.09. OEFF-217 Nature-Park Karwendel

The first step could be completed successfully. My plan was to activate this nature-park from the area of Achenwald, not too far away from our accommodation. However it was raining extremely today in the morning so we had to cancel our planned mountain-tour. Instead of this we moved at first back to germany and moved via the Sylvenstein-Speicher back again to Austria claiming via Hinterriss directly to the Alpenpark-Karwendel. The weather was terrible, however nature still beautiful. On a small road you can drive in the area up till 1250 meters ASL. At about 1100 UTC we had to close down the wandering-activities as it still began to rain more and more. After some dinner break we decided to start a bit earlier as usually planned with the operation. So the only advantage was, due to the bad weather we had one large parking-area totally alone. During constantly rain we built up the station and were ready to go at 1041 UTC. In the next 2,5 hours around 300 contacts were made. Several attempts on 20 meters were for nothing. The band was nearly totally closed. To change the antenna and probably test on the other bands was impossible in the constant rain. However 40 meters was very successful and it seems that a lot of Flora-Fauna hunter could get a new one. During return-trip via Sylvenstein-Stausee we already picked some possibilities for the planned activity from DLFF-173.
