SPFF-713 again

Last weekend i returned to SPFF 713 to get some more QSO’s. Unfortunately there was poor condx for qrp as it was in the morning and propagation changed slowly to high angles. I got a lot of 559 and 539 reports and also heard some of OM’s were strugglin’ to receive my signal.
Despite poor conditions it was lovely morning with great weather so after i failed with gaining pileup i’ve decided to take a walk for some pictures.

Short activity from small reserve – SPFF-716


We had polish hamvention in Burzenin Last weekend. It is probably largest hams meeting in SP with more than 400 participants. During some spare time I’ve decided to visit floral reserve nearby called Winnica. It is very small and charming place near to Warta river and contains floral posts simmilar to those in polish Jura (check out previous activities). It is because jurassic marl rock apears here on the surface and such flora (warm meadows specimens) likes such undersoil.

It is nice, quiet place lost among fields few hundred meters from Warta river who shaped its mild walley. It is almost 4km from Burzenin and I’ve decided to take a little walk with my backpack. It was pure pleasure with great weather this day.

First portable operation – SPFF-713


My first activity from Flora Fauna QTH is history now. Using Elecraft K1 qrp transceiver i managed to log tens of callsigns and had a lot of fun! Take a look at a place i’ve visited and a setup used there.

SPFF-0713 area known as Morysin reserve is placed in southern outskirts of Warsaw. I used to grow in this neighbourhood so i know this place well. It has interesting history. Founded as a park near Wilanow royal residence become abandoned and taken back by the nature shortly after second world war. There are some relics of XIX age buildings nad some old trees planted there as a part of a romantic park.
