The RSGB IOTA contest for 2013 is over. This year we activated the island of Texel (EU-038) as PG13IOTA. It’s very nice to operate in an environment without man-made noise. In particular on the 40-meters band, where the average noise level from my home is S9+, which makes local QSO’s even hard to follow.
Nice thing about this years’ activation was the help we had from SWL’s Lucas, Roald and Ron. Two of them are going to do there ham-radio exam in September this year. They should be very motivated after the weekend where they helped operating our station.
