First SOTA with Yaesu FT-857D

On this activation I logged contacts on 10, 20 and 40 meters. As I had the necessary battery power (4.2Ah LifePo) and 100W  TX power I spent a bit of time working DX on 20mt in the afternoon - unfortunately none of them were SOTA chasers.

This was the first time that I completely drained my battery by using 100W for DX and had to finish the 40mt contacts on my spare battery.

10mt dipole (Buddypole)


Linked dipole 40 + 20, FT857 on the ground.


Great View
