30.January 1st Session

At 07:00 o'clock I got up. First looking for the weather condicions. Looks vy nice, again a sunny day without any clouds.

Abt 8 o'clock I started to drive up the amazing mountain street from our QTH on 240m to Jinama abt 1200m.
On the street up some special traffic jam - see picture.
I planned to have my QTH at this viewpoint (Jinama).
But, unfortunally since 3 years they are building a terrible block from beton...still in progress.
So I drove a bit further, abt 500m away, over a natural street right of Jinama.

On 08:55 I was ready, not in HF - first I had the daily sked with La Palma DL9RX and and Teneriffe DF6GU on 2m.
With the UV868 Handy I could really reach my friends on the other Islands very well with abt 5 Watts in FM on 145.500.

Abt 20 Min later I began with installing the Mantelwellen Antenna.
(Its a Vertical Dipol for 20m QRP but end feeded with abt 100 Ohms).
I had a bit to adjust them to 1:1 - against the tuning position where I used them in the garden.

Abt 09:35 I was QRV and listend.
Suddently I heart OM6TC Jozef - replied him several times but he could not read me.
09:37 14056 HA2NK Feri, 569 559 20/4 Watts 22C, QSO in Log, but does not understand my exchange, seems a normal QSO
09:49 14060.8 DL4BBJ 569 569 ?/4 Watts 22C - QSO in Log also a normal QSO
09:52 14064.2 OO7Z Peter 549 449 4 Watts (I forgot to write down the Temp...)
09:55 1406x heard CT7/K9PM with abt 559 - but he could not read me.
10:00 1406x YU7AE Kare 439 559 5/4 Watts 27C 12C - QSO in Log
Then I heard and replied following stations but none of them gave a reply:
OM7TC Jozef again, IV3ICH, EA3IJO Jose, EA7EGU, DK1RX, DL4BBJ again
11:02 14059.9 OK2BQN Zdenek 529 429 ?/4 Watts ?/22C - QSO in Log also a normal QSO (he chases me always on SOTA)
After heard and replied YT5M, HA... but both din't read me.
Then again called and called but no more takers -
Abt 11:30 I decided for QRT.
After analyzing the heard and reached stations must say - short-medium skip condx.
2 QSO with Field stations - YU Serbia, OO Belgium)
3 QSO with normal Stations - HA Hungary, DL Germany, OK Czech Rep.

First 4 done with 4 Watts from PFR-3
Last 1 done with 4 Watts from HB1-B

For me it was successful, radio and antenna worked well.
Sometimes from abt 10:30 I had for some seconds until abt 30 seconds a terrible QRM - from a radion station(?) or from not recognized spectrum transmission - power lines ?  (but there are no powerlines to see on the mountain).
