Before QRV. I walked through a snowy wetland. It was fine weather, windless and wonderful scenery.
This park is north of Tokyo. It takes 2 hours 30 minutes by car.
Outdoor operation with BitX 40. The antenna is EFHW, 2 QSOs (distance 600 km to 800 Km
from JA1 to JA8 and JA4). NVIS condition was up and down . But 1st time contact to JA8(800Km).
Battery is Lithium ion 18650 * 3 3400 mA. And operation is possible for 2 to 3 hours.
I am using a 10 KΩ potential meter for tuning.
