The first ”Nordic Joint Activation” OHFF-0018

Idea for ”joint activation” was born with Anders, SA2CLU and me late autumn 2017. Just needed to find good place and some extra free time. Best time was New Year holidays – who want to wait summer?

We met in Ylläsjärvi willage, as located on south side of Pallas-Yllästunturi National park, on midday and had quick and light lunch. Temperature was mild, -4C. Fast packing to Anders 4×4 pickup and on the road. I was reading map. We drove about 1 hour to north, Kolvanrova area. There would be nice place to mobile station. As we arrived to place we noticed that there are 70cm to 1 metre snow. No needed any stands for fishing poles, just stick them to snow. We used Icom IC-7200 with 30Ah acid lead battery. Antenna was linked dipole to 20m and 40m, about 10m high. Continue reading

I had a fun time activating here. I sat down and started calling CQ and the first person to pop in was K7CAR, Kent! We chatted a bit about KFF/POTA and he’s going to think about joining. He must have called N7SMT, because David stopped by shortly after. It was great to have 2 people I’d chased come by for a visit! Thanks for spotting me too! I got several folks asking if this was a continuation of NPOTA and I explained about POTA and WWFF and sent them to our web page. One was very happy I was there and will get signed up and chase WWFF this year. He did a healthy 400+ NPOTA chases last year. Continue reading
