K3BOC / Bicycle mobile

I am Dervin PD9DX,one off the operators off the PI33EUDXF activity,

with this ses event callsign we have nice pile-ups,and there are always stations in the pile up that you never forget,stations from a rare DX,or small Islands,Martime Mobile stations somewhere in the pacific etc,

but the station that whas calling me last week,whas also verry interesting,it whas K3BOC / Bicycle mobile,amazing signal from his bike !

I contact later Mike by mail and he tell his station info:

Bike: Trek Antelope 830
Radio: Yaesu FT-100 @ 70 watts

Antenna: Outbacker Perth

Power: Bioenno 20 aH LifePO4

Mike inform me that he work all US states and 167 countries from his bike,most contacts at 35 watts with a 7 aH SLA battery !! but now he have a new Bioenno 20 aH LifePO4 (Lithium Iron Phosphate) battery so now he can operate at higher power,usually 70 watts, for a much longer time.
att the moment that he whas calling me he whas operating at Immaculata University,where his son goes to school, near his home QTH in West Chester, Pa.

EUDXF 33 Award is very populair

Now, on day 12 of the EUDXF Activity Month, the number of award applications exceed the situation of last year. The activity on the bands by the various Special 33 EUDXF stations apparantly helps a lot to get the required QSO’s logged for the award.

I have to emphasize that this years 33 EUDXF Award rules differ from the rules of previous years. So please check out your application complies to this year requirements to avoid “problems”. Click here for this years rules.

Some of the 33EUDXF station will disappear in the coming days as their license is only for a limited number of weeks, whilst other will show more activity in the 2nd part of the EUDXF Activity month.

I like to thank the operators of the various 33EUDXF stations for their commitment and activity for the EUDXF.
