Sunday in JN51XX
Today some MS activity /P from rare square JN51XX.
With Pino IK0SMG we have operated 144MHz with the call IW0FFK/0.
Fabio IK0IXI, Stefano I0LYO and Raoul IK0LZR with the call IQ0HL/0 have activated this rare square for the first time in 70 MHz.
Brief history of JN51 and JN51XX.
JN51 is for 99% sea without islands, 1% (JN51XX) is few km from Rome BUT is in a OFF-LIMITS-ZONE.
The earth portion of JN51XX is shared by:
– MILITARY TRAINING CAMP at north
– NATURAL RESERVE (Macchiatonda) in the middle…they don’t like our activity, generators antennas and RF
-MILITARY BASE at south
So the only chance to work from this locator is ask the director of natural reserve, and the permission is quite hard to obtain.
I0LYO got the permission last week, then I have heard IK0IXI talking about in KST’s chat…so I’ve asked him to join their team with IK0SMG for work also 144MHz.
We have been lucky, Fabio reply was positive…and after three years from II0W, back again in JN51!
We have worked some QSO in 6,5 hours, with well known “square hunters”, I have the log of 144 MHz, hope to publish also the log of 4m operations.
Confirmed QSOs on 144MHz FSK441:
