Sweden On A President Florida Antenna

So thought about doing something crazy as its 39c so why not try and DX on the biscuit tin challenge with a 45cm President Florida on a tin lid, against the roof facing the wrong direction but it won’t work anyhow so there is no harm in it? But I was really wrong indeed.


There was Erik 21DW066 from around 100km from Stockholm with his 6900nv6 and GainMaster antenna. The distance between us locator to locator 1,333KM.

In the video I say Super Florida, after measuring the antenna I’m completely wrong! It’s a simple Florida with 50w PEP handling.



Station was 480SAT (Thanks Janos) cr577 microphone with 30w and antenna was as you see a Florida and Ant2: Antron99 at the location where I was at the time, we were installing new cables and air conditioning.
