Short but nice visit into Wisla river estuary near Gdansk. I know this place for a long time – i visited it back in late 90’s for birdwatching. This time we’ve spotted a lot of rare birds as well. You can find out more about this superb reserve here. You can reach this place easily from Gdansk in less thank 30 minutes.
I wired my Elecraft K1 to Nokia Booklet netbook via G4ZLP keyer/interface. This little device works in WinKeyer format provides USB interface for keying through logging programm (N1MM this case) as well as padle connection. Nokia netbook, although old piece of gear, works some 7-8 hours with it’s battery. This setup works perfectly on portable – except for very beginning when OS collapsed:) I enjoyed nice pile ups using simple dipole, hanged few meters over the beach. Salt water does the job again. Over 100 qso’s has been uploaded to the online log as well as spff database. It was second activity from this place overall!
QSL is ok via the bureau as usual.
It is one year now since first portable qrp activity. I definitely find it nice and relaxing to have some fun with little radio outdoor. I’m also pleased to provide you with qso and informations about interesting places.
