Yesterday they was a solar storm and most of the bands where not good so was not expecting much today but the weather was nice with little cloud so headed to catch the local bus to Seaham , Seaham is small town just outside the city of Sunderland on the North East coast and the locations here to operate portable are amazing and plenty of WWFF GFF Sites .
I set the super antenna up on the rocks and laid the counterpoise kit out and tuned the slider on the coil to 20m on 14317 and the calls started rolling in thick and fast with contacts into Israel and Europe and even tried 17m and worked ZA/DL4KM/P in Albania and Russia and Ukraine with excellent reports and then went onto 40 and was amazed to see the antenna doing well .
Total number of contacts today was 103 in around 3 hours of operating QRP at 5w , Location makes a massive difference with the MP1B and the Saltwater is a massive amplifier :)
The weather sets to be pretty wet over the next few days so my next portable activity maybe into next week .
Thanks to all that called me today and logs have been added to WWFF & EQSL
