Welcome - Velkommen !

My JW Svalbard activity on RS-10 satellite

This is from my first solo trip to Svalbard in 1996 December.

Here I was at the club station of JW5E with my old call sign JW/LC3SAT.

And activated the RS-10 satellite, 2m up and 10m down mod SSB.

I mounted my private antennas from home in dark day, and my TS-711 VHF.

Strong winds and freezing temperatures, but fortunately no polar bear visits.

 And here I slept.
