I spent a few day with friends at the North Sea coast living in an old farm house in JO43dm.


Portable setup in my friend's farmhouse. On the right you see the TenTec RX320D above the Yaesu FRT-7700 RX tuner.

Years ago I have put up a full size dipole inside that house right through the top of the roof about 14m above ground. The location is very "silent" radiowise. This time I took my RX320D receiver with me and ran it with WSPR on 30m first for a few hours on 11 October and then on 40m for the rest of the night. The power supply of my notebook is rather noisy; this reduces capabilities of that location. And too bad, that the activity has been so low. I could copy even the weaker stations I do not get here in my home QTH, but there were only few of them. So I stopped WSPR next day and preferred to play Irish tunes on my violin ...
