Nice to hear from my friends over at Team Thunderbox today, in an e-mail from Jon, 2E0DBD. Callsigns to be used will be 2E0KGV/P, 2EODBD/P, 2E0RJP/P, M3XGE/P and M6USB/P with operation between 9th and 14th of April.
Here's what he has to say about their latest project
We have been extremely busy on several projects, mainly the second tower, and a truly superb mobile power supply unit.
The second tower has been finished, and will be used in our next outing "Thunder Down Under"
The idea behind "Thunder Down Under" is to work as many stations as possible in the Southern Hemisphere during the 6 days we are operating portable.
The equipment we are planning to use is as follows.
For 160/80 metres we plan to use our doublet antenna installed at 60'
For 40 meters we will be using a 2 Element Cubical Quad @ 60'
For 20 metres we shall use a 3 Element Cubical Quad @ 60' on the new tower.
For local 2/70 work, we will assemble a Diamond X700H @ 35'
We plan to operate as greenly as possible, and the power will be supplied by a 30 amp wind turbine, and 12 solar panels supplying approx 10 amps fed into a distrubution system.
Hope to work some of you.
