PD55RADAR Special Event

Peter PD1AJJ and Elmar PD3EM will be active with the special event callsign PD55RADAR between 4 - 14 september 2010.

RaDAR is short for Rapid Deployment Amateur Radio. This is an international concept of Radio Amateurs being able to operate anywhere under all circumstances.
The goal is to setup an Amateur Radio station quickly on remote sites anywhere using only battery power. And anywhere means not only sites reachable by car but also on locations after a few miles walk. The 5x5 concept means being able to communicate by Amateur Radio within 5 minutes after arriving with the QRP power of 5 watts maximum.

Peter and Elmar will participate in the IARU HF SSB Fieldday (september 4-5) from the Dutch polders near the famous windmills of Kinderdijk. They will use their Yaesu FT-817 which means QRP only so keep your ears open!

The rest of the period they will be operating PD55RADAR in their free-time which will mainly be during the evenings.
