The story of a great QSO between DL4FO/p Chris and VK4FW Bill
Thanks for listening to my weak WWFF-signal on 20m today and answering my call.
You really made my day!! I was on a hiking trip and called from a wooden tower on a summit near Frankfurt (not a SOTA reference but within DLFF-0068).
Since it was getting cold and my wife waited with two dogs down at the tower, I only took out the little MFJ-1820T telescopic antenna, which is abt. 1.5 m long (see picture).
I used the lighting rod of the tower as a counterpoise and started calling CQ with 5 watts from my KX2 by Elecraft.
Surprisingly UA9LT answered, but when you came back, I was completely hyped.
Thanks very much, I will send postage and my address via OQRS/Paypal to get your QSL for this great QSO.
Looking forward to meeting you again from any mountain or from my home-QTH!
73 and 44 Chris DL4FO/p
