EA6VQ/P in IARU reg.1 VHF contest
(September 2003) from JM19NW

This time I was only QRV on sunday morning with the IC-202 + 80w running from the car battery. I used a new antenna (12 el / 3 wl by M2) which seems pretty good for portable operations. It can be transported inside the car (longer boom section is about 1.5 m) and can be assembled in minutes. Propagation conditions were quite poor but curious. It was hard to work stations in southern france, but at the same time I could hear TM1Y and HB9/EA2URE (JN36) almost all the time and I even heard two other stations in JN38. See the longest distance QSO at the bottom of the page.

The M2 12el. antenna attached to the car rack. The well-known Hotel Formentor in the back.

And another beautiful view of the peninsula of Formentor. What a pleasure to operate from this location.
