CC: Cloudy and cold activation : CT/BL-012 Pampilhosa da Serra


After a working day that started very very early…

Temp around 4ºC, wind moderate, some rain

On the summit a weird situation (see photos):

  • To the South, cloudy and foggy
  • To the North, clear sky

9 quick QSO’s. The first one was my first S2S on SSB (7 MHz), with CT2IUV, Nuno. He is at CT/TM-018 Serra do Leiranço, 182 Km north.

My signal to Nuno’s position is weak but at 3 W and a 2.95 Euros mic in the KX-3….

First time I used the bothy bag!…


The trig in the distance


Wire antenna and pine tree as support
