Packtenna in The Wild – Westin Hotel Melbourne

I activated the Melbourne Westin Hotel for the on-going HOTA Hotels on the Air program

The wonderful Packtenna 9:1 antenna, Elecraft T1 Tuner and my circa 2001 FT-817 (wow 15 years old) was set up and i was QRV and QRZ looking for contacts

Propagation was bad but managed a couple of VK3 barge ins on existing QSOs on 40m just to prove the concept and get the activation points


Packtenna 9:1 antenna 29 foot radiator


Always get a balcony room
