Active on following modes: CW -Phone- RTTY- PSK-JT65-FM-QRSS-AM-SSTV

The 80m antenna is now up and running. It is an inverted L with 15m vertical section+ 5m loading wire
and 2 elevated radials.
I am very excited to be able to operate on 80m from a such small city lot
so every QSO is appreciated! Local 80m reception is very challenging with plenty
of man made noise.

If you hear my signal please send me an email report with time and RST.
Thank you. Skeds are welcome.
