We are happy to share the summary of our HB0/HB9DBM, JN47sf, MW DXpedition in November 2018. You find additional information and photos of the DXpedition at https://hb9q.ch/2018/…
This was our 4th DXpedition with our “portable” station. We are very happy to report that we experienced no technical problems and suffered no damage at all. We are also very happy with the performance of our station.
We have worked a total of 131 QSOs and 108 initials on 5 bands in 5 moon-paths, one path per band! It was nice to work a total of 25 CW QSOs on the 5 bands. On all bands we were CQing for hours with no takers, so there is obviously a lot of opportunity to work more stations!
