I was back to Coochiemudlo Island today and was QRV on 40m, 20m and 15m from, but conditions were rather poor. On top of that, I had some local QRM all the time on all the bands, but couldn’t easily identify what it was.
I was operating with 20w and a three-band linked vertical antenna. The 15 m band was nearly dead, just had a few JA stations in my log as well as few VK/ZL/JA stations on 40m. The rest was all on 20m.
I didn’t even try SSB as it was very, very windy on the island and I’m sure my audio would be badly affected.
Thanks to everyone who called and thanks for your patience with picking up my weak signal, that’s life with batteries 🙂
