17 Meter Opening

At about 1420 zulu, while having coffee before my workout, I decided to fire up the Kenwood TS-570D and see what kind of action was going on. 17m was going crazy. I made contact with the following countries:

  • Belgium
  • Italy
  • Bahamas
  • Croatia
  • Slovenia
  • Germany
  • Austria
  • Switzerland

With the Solar Cycle being at the low end, this was fun, especially living in Northern Minnesota and not having any beam antennas. 100 watts and a wire is all it took!

It’s been pretty crazy and cold lately so no portable action from the Burger family. Catch us in March operating portable from Arizona doing some SOTA and possibly WWFF/POTA.
