First SOTA activation with 17m QCX Mini


Richard - N1RBD
 

Took the QCX Mini to the second summit today.  VHF was treating us right, so I knew worst case I'd be able to get 4 chasers on the HT, so the MTR stayed in the truck and the 17m Mini went to the summit.  My very first SOTA QSO on the radio was ZL2IFB in New Zealand.  RST was 339 both ways, but we did complete the QSO.  8100 miles on 17m with 4.2w.  I'll take that any day!
