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 Summer QTH

 

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).
