The local QRM from the Ship was always S7-9 and the conditions near Iceland was very poor at that given time due to the Sun Aurora activity over Iceland (green zone).

I had only 5 QSOs on 20m with: 9A7JCY, EI7M, I4TJE, OE5SLN and HG17HD between 28. and 29. July 2017.
At that time I was between Kirkwall Scotland and Hamburg on the sea.


I was happy to meet Ari TF3ARI in Reykjavik. He is the most active Ham-Radio Operator in Iceland.
TF3ARI SDR Kiwi SDR Radio with an 13m vertical antenna.
