POTA on 2 Mtr Bellevue State Park Delaware POTA K-1731

Recommended Posts

Dear Fellow Club Members and friends

Thank you for taking the time to hunt me Sunday afternoon during the Delaware Parks on the Air activation. I activated Bellevue State Park in Delaware and successfully tested a 5 element Cushcraft 2M/70cm Wideband Yagi Beam for 2 Mtrs and a power amp. I also activated this park for K2AA  on 40 Mtrs

Follow along with me on You Tube during this Activation

Let me know next time you head to Delaware.  Recently, I have been spending most of my time on 20m. That is not a good band for MD to DE.   My loop can do a reasonable job on 40m, but is much more efficient on 20m. Last weekend I stuck with it for about 3.5 hours and made over 220 contacts. The 30 AH battery makes a difference for long activations. At 100W, I get a few Europeans calling in. I have Alaska, but not Delaware! 

I have been activating different parks in the DC area. In DC I run 8W. The parks in MD and VA I run the 100W rig. Here is another thing I need help with. The islands of the Potomac river are a park. Anyone got a boat for my 100W station?

Scott, I don't do anything like your videos of activations. I have a few still pictures, but I am just not a videographer like you!
