Story:
Me and my wife wanted to take a short visit to Åland since none of us had ever been there. It takes only a day to drive from our home near Oslo, Norway to Åland. Since Åland is it's own DXCC entity I of course had to bring with me some radio gear.

Operating bands and modes:
I operated with a halfwave dipole cut for the 20 m band on 20 m, 10 m and 6 m. The antenna was hanging from a flagpole to a tre close to the little cabin I rented.

 

Radio Equipment:

ICOM IC-703 160 m - 6 m HF/VHF Multimode Transceiver
ICOM IC-E92D 2 m/70 cm VHF/UHF FM/D-STAR Transceiver
Dipole antenna for 20 m
Switch Mode PS 12 VDC - 5 A

The "shack" consisting of an ICOM IC-703 and an ICOM IC-E92D.

 


The little cabin we rented was located next to a unused flagpole, how neat!

 


This map shows the contacts I made on 6 m from OH0, with only the dipole and 10 watts from my ICOM IC-703.
