Big Scandanavian E’s

Friday night.. June 10 we had quite a sensational opening on FM into Scandinavia. Norway, Finland, Sweden were all heard from this QTH. Russia was also heard. The interesting thing for me was that I had just repaired my Yagi antenna and put it into action for the very first time in Europe. (Horizontally)

The Yagi up there now pointing at Scandinavia
The tree is an issue but for E’s its not too bad
This is the unseen story – Dx to the South East is blocked
E’s are okay. But I want to put all antennas up on that roof
The Yagi on the washing bearing
Good news is a clear path towards the East
That’s the log down for repairs. I’m going to make that the vertical
I also have a gap towards England and sort of a bit to Spain.

I have some logs which I’m going through from last nights session. I’ll post these here Sunday morning. I’ve spent the day dismantling the dx shack and rebuilding the interior. So the place is still a mess. Also typed in 300 OIRT frequencies into my scanner (Pro 2004) and built a wire dipole. Just waiting for dx now. Today (Saturday) there has been nothing to date.
