Goin’ out in Mother Nature!

Not much listening yesterday evening and last night. Instead I prepared for a little 24h “mini-pedition” to the Skagen Peninsula, which is the northern part of Vardøya Island. Skagen is easily accessed by car, and the weather this morning is indeed very nice. Very little wind and even parts of blue sky. I will use my ICF-2001D (ICF-2010) and two BOG’s, 200m in 330 degrees and 200m in 50 degrees. Both fed via 9:1 baluns into a coax switch and a step attenuator. It will be interesting to listen in an environment which is free from man-made noise. Nearest building structure populated by Homo Sapiens is almost 900 meters away. Hope that the rather low A- and K–indexes remains. I’m getting back tomorrow afternoon with the results of this little visit in Mother Nature.



About Hans

Male. 50 years young. DX:er since 1980. In September 2011 I moved up to Vardø on Vardøya Island (EU-141) to start working as manager for the Coast Radio station in Vardø. I feel very lucky to have this opportunity to work with the thing that I think is the most interesting in the whole world - Radio! My main interest is, yeah - you guessed right: Radio. I'm a ham radio operator, holding the callsign LA2MOA. My main radio interests is low power operation and low band DXing on the amateur bands, but also mediumwave and tropical band DX-listening. I'm also interested in angling, fly-fishing and fly-tying. The area around Vardø offers some great opportunities to do all of this. And, since I'm of swedish origin, I'm also madly interested in ice-hockey and since 35 years I'm a hardcore supporter of Rögle BK in Ängelholm - one of the few really true hockey clubs left in Sweden.
