QTH = SCHAIPPACH - JO40tb
"Schaippach" is a suberb of Gemuenden.
Schaippach is located on the River Sinn, about 4 km north-northwest of Gemuenden, which is located on the River Main. Both rivers merge together with a third river, the River Saal, in Gemuenden.
Although part of Schaippach is at a low altitude, my exact QTH is up a big hill, almost a mountain. It is probably the worst QTH on the planet for Amateur Radio.
DJ0IP's HF Hole.
The foto below shows the
mountains in all directions.
During the summer I can operate upstairs in our summer house. "House" is a bit of an overstatement; it's open on 3 sides. From up here I get out a little better, but I still have this mountain between me and North America.
With this darn mountain and all those rivers,
maybe I should take up FISHING!
(By coincidence, I do have several Spiderbeam fiberglass telescoping poles laying around).
