In mid October we met at a house on Hvaler(EU-061) for further planning and testing of some of the equipment we are bringing along.

The Folding Hex Beam looks promising. From the picture attached it might look like a pain to put up, but it was quite easy to unfold. First setup and tuning will take you hours but after that it’s a breeze. A K3 and KPA500 was also set up for testing and a few QSO were made.

All ops where at the meeting: Rune LA6YIA, Morten LB8DC, Bjorn LB1GB and Lars LB2TB.
