Impressions of PI4ZI/P

During the weekend of 5 and 6 September 2015 I was member of the crew of PI4ZI/P.
PI4ZI/P is the SSB field-day contest station of the VERON Twente.

We had 24 hours starting Friday 15:00 local time to build the station off the grid and the next 24 hours to make as many contacts as possible. Every new country or 'entity' as we call them gives extra points.
Rainy and windy
The weather was rainy and windy so a good dry shack and steady antennas where very important.

One HF shack (and kitchen) to the left and 4 HF shacks to the right.

We managed to contact about 800 HAM radio stations on every continent of the planet. Don’t send PI4ZI/P QSL just contact us every time you hear us.
