Balance Rock – CT/BA-013, Nossa Senhora do Castelo

Activation date: 31JUL2016

This is a drive in summit, in this nice interior region of Portugal.

At the time I arrived to the summit, the sky is fullk of clouds and mist.
20 minutes later the sun is warm and all the clouds and mist disappeared!
However, 2 issues are against CT1DBS/p:
– HF propagation
– A place to erect the pole

So, a single 40m/CW QSO was made with CT2IWW.
The qualification was made in the 2m/FM (4 QSOs).
All QSOs between 1055z and 1112z.

I’lle back to this one another time…
