Fair "BOOT & FUN“ Berlin 2014
DLØMFW und DLØMFB active on the fair "BOOT & FUN“
From Nov 27th til Nov 30th the both MF clubstations DLØMFW und DLØMFB were active
from the fair called „Boot & Fun“ in Berlin. The Deutsche Marinebund (DMB) gave MF already
the second time a chance to give an overview about MF. Operators were Klaus/DF6LI and
Werner/DF2OR who made a professional composition in front of the event.
Later on Friday Albert/DF8LD completed the crew.
Ham Radio on a fair is a difficult behaviour due to the permanent QRM by the public and
also by the installed electronical equipment within the fairs hall.
active on bands
It is mostly not possible to hang antennas as favourable as the operators would like
to do. So our windom FD-4 antenna dangled only about 1,5 m above the tinny roof of the
building. Unfortunately we were not allowed to hang it in another way.

Main mode was CW while a permanent noise level of about S7 made SSB nearly impossible.
In spite of this lots of QSO came into the log, also MF stations of course.
It was a great fun for the operators to show the flag of MF on a fair. Many visitors
were decoyed by the „peeps“ and this was finally also a profit for the DMB.
So we got already an invitation to take part also in the next years fair.
