DK2RO from EU-047

I plan to be active from Spiekeroog Island (EU-047) between Monday 20th and Friday 24th of February. Activation is planned on 80-10m mostly in SSB (maybe also PSK / RTTY). It might also be possible that you hear me in CW but keep in mind that I am very unexpierenced in this mode so be very patient if you call me :-)

Locator: JO33US

Equipment will be: ICOM IC-7200 (100W) + Dipole + Z-Match

QSL is sure via the Bureau and Direct to homeadress (pse only SAE + IRC). The Log will also be uploaded to LoTW.

My activation has ended now and I can say that it was a success. In the five days on the island I have made about 100 contacts. It could have been much more in my opinion but I could not get my Dipole working on 40m and 80m. Also the conditions weren't to good. But I am still happy with the result as I was only about a total of 5 hours on the air.

All QSOs are already uploaded to LoTW and the next step will be to print he QSL-Cards. I think this will take some time. In the meantime you should have a look at the photos I have taken on Spiekeroog.
