EI8GQB / EU-115
2011 IOTA Contest
I worked Olivier EI8GQB (Home call ON4EI )
on 40 meters this afternoon ...
from his incredible portable location in Ireland.
He was running a K3 at 100 watts
and a single 40 meter vertical.
His signal was peaking S9 at times.
Olivier was testing his antennas
to prepare for this weekends IOTA contest.
Here is a pic inside the portable shack.
Olivier will be running SO2R / 100 watts
with a Elecraft K3 and a Kenwood TS-2000 ...
during this years 2011 IOTA contest.

10 element 20m inverted V antenna
