  1. Hi Paul, I advised through Parks and Peaks that I would be activating the Pauline Toner Butterfly Conservation Reserve VKFF- 2175 at 01.30Z. I was using a KNQ7A at 5W into a dipole on 7.144 MHz. I called for 30mins without a comeback. So I went home and got a vertical and called for another 30mins from 04.00Z. Apart from hearing you finishing with a VK7 (?) again I heard nothing. It was so frustrating. I know the antenna is resonant on 40mts, the Pauline Toner park is in a winding valley and the dipole can only run east to west which isn’t ideal and conditions on 40 mts haven’t been good for QRP operation. I’ll have another go when the sunspots improve.

    • Hi Tony,

      Sorry to hear that you didn’t have a lot of success during the activation. With conditions as they have been of late, that little bit of extra grunt certainly makes a difference.

      Cheers,

      Paul VK5PAS.
