OHFF-0229 Sorsasalo Nature Reserve Area

I made some modifications to kids snowsled. I needed some help to transport 12V battery and supplies to woods. We, my wife and I, like to move with snowshoes so ”2 flies with one hit”. We walk to Sorsasalo Nature Reserve area, OHFF-0229, with snowshoes. After one kilometer walk in forest wife’s snowshoe broken. It took some time to fix it. I was on the air later as I planned but no problem. Propagation was nice and I got 54 phone QSOs on 20m to Europe with 30W . FT-897 handle mild frost nice. There was only -7C. This was the second activation as I used 20m/40m link dipole. Antenna was inv-v position and top was about 9,5m high. What is positive in winter activations? Not so much mosquitos … 73 44 Timo OF7JHA/p

OZFF Cup 2017

OZFF Group would like to invite all Hunters and OZFF Activators to OZFF Cup 2017.

The OZFF Cup is a simple competition starting January 1st and ending December 31th.
Back in 2012, we got the idea of a little game to motivate Hunters and OZFF Activators. Hunters get 1 point for a QSO one time band/mode. The Activators get 1 point per QSO. If more than one Activator is on the air from the same area, Hunters also get point for QSOs with the other Activator. This motivates Hunters to have more than one QSO with the same area. If the Activator starts up a new Activation, from the same area but on a new calender date, both Activator and Hunters will have points again.
