France Flora Fauna
The 14th September 2013 in the afternoon , together with Gianni I1YHU , we worked the park : FFF-445 Cap Martin - le Corbusier – Eileen Gray with the call F/I1UWF .
It has been a tough operation as it is not possible to enter in the park with the car; we had to carry all equipments on a trolley and reach it.
The park is very small ,one hectare only , located between the railways and the sea with cliff .
There is a small pedestrian way crossing it , but no shadow and not enough place to built up the antenna.
In spite of all those difficulties (please see pictures )we were able to establish the station and make 101 qso .
Environment is beautiful , high on the sea and really wild.
Most of qso were in 40m as in 20m propagation was really poor.
We will return again ,probably next spring ,to operate from FFF445 .
Working conditions : ic-7000 , tuner, car battery , vertical antenna
