On September 6 our dog Pepita and I took a walk in the woods to a bird tower in nature reserve Gammelstadsviken. This reserve in KP15ap is situated not so far from the city Luleå i northern Sweden. A previous attempt to reach the tower last year was interrupted when Pepita caught sight/smell of bear droppings on the trail and refused to continue. At site I erected my 8 m vertikal, but it started to rain so I moved it to the top of the tower. My 5 W from the FT-817 sometimes was not enough, but I managed to work nine SM stations on CW on the 40 m band. One of them was also a portable station, SM4EDK/P in JP70pg.
