Waiting for Es

Nice video about Holland and The Netherlands. It’s good explanation about things I don’t know myself, really.

Well, radio activity is a bit low here. I am waiting for sporadic E, there were Es warnings for multihop propagations but I couldn't hear anything. I do have only a vertical antenna for 6 meter. Today I am WSPR-ing on 10 meter with 5 watts. First station who spotted me was LB9YE. 1412 km.

  1. Wow, hoe vind je zoiets. Ook niet gecompliceerd hoor, nee! En wat kan de commentator snel praten, hij struikelt net niet over z'n eigen woorden. Leuk filmpje! Mijn 6m is buiten werking en daarmee ook de rest van VHF/UHF. Ik denk dat ik deze zomer maar even de es oversla. 73, Bas

    1. Hallo Bas, ik kwam het filmpje vanmorgen toevallig tegen. Ja, de Es valt tot nu toe nog erg tegen. Vorig jaar eigenlijk ook al. Ik kijk het even aan in juni en juli, want anders zet ik een vertical voor HF op. 73 Paul

  2. Very, very clever, amusing, and at the same time enlightening. Of course SWLs knew the international radio station as Radio Netherlands, not Radio Holland. I'm not even sure there is a Radio Netherlands any longer thus joining the Radio Holland that never was.
