The field for the antenna isnt much and I would like to allow as many stations to log FK, so my choice is to operate “good” on a few bands and few modes but “bands closed” and “short skip” should be a problem so i’m working hard in order to be active in any band with the best antenna system possible.

During the CQ WPX SSB Contest I will be active as SO20QRP (5W out) Not Assisted !!

Equipment :
Icom IC-7300 (100W no PA)
2x 50A switching
Laptop (running Wintest and WSJT-X)

17-20m : Homemade 1/2 wave Vertical Antenna
15m : 2 wave wire Antenna
40-30m: 1 wave wire Antenna

Mode : SSB-CW-RTTY – during noprop FT8 random
