My first 5MHz activation

The Norwegian Post and Telecommunications Authority announced the new Regulations for Radio Amateurs Friday. The new regulations gave us access to 60m, 4m, and extensions on 12m and 40m.

Today I decided to try out 60m from a local summit in the Summits On The Air (SOTA) program. I worked 9 stations in G, GW and GM with my Yaesu FT-817ND, Elecraft T1 ATU and an inverted V style 88ft doublet.


  1. Great to work you on 60m. I hope you keep the band in your armoury when you are activating for SOTA. I monitor 5.3985 when ever I am at home and not asleep.

    Regards Steve GW7AAV

  2. Thanks for your comment, Steve! I'm looking forward to work you again soon on 60m.
