The field for the antenna will not be much and I would like to allow as many stations to log FK, so my choice was 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.

In this table you can see the planned bands and modes for each band :

During the CQ WPX SSB Contest I will be active as SO15LP Not Assisted !!
