Once again excellent PMR-446 activity day. Just before noon I took a tram from Hobujaama and rode to the crossroads of Läsnamäe and Majak from which opens a clear view to the Tallin Laht. There I managed to raise Äpu with very strong 59 signals. Then I took a tram again and rode to the Kopli peninsula and departed the tram at Sepa, that is the second last stop on that line. The last one is Kopli, I think. I walked accross the railway line and managed to raise Äpu, Ambur and Officer from the open field between the railway line and the sea. Then I walked towards the beach and raised Officer Once again. I walked the beach line westwards until I arrived at the fence, obviously there is Estonian Coast Guard station. From there I raised Vanapagan and Officer. Then I took a tram once again and rofe to the Kadriorg. From there I walked accross the Pirita highway and raised Äpu once again, that was on the beach about directly from the Embassy of China. Obviously I managed to break in on some QSO, sri. From there I walked towards Marjamäe Loss and climbed atop of the hill behind the Palace. Frome there I could open the Tallinn papagoi with 50 mW. Unfortunately the activity has ceased at that time on ch8.00 as well as on ch3.00, perhaps only some scrambled traffic on papagoi or someone opened the repeater. I didn't try Keila while it was not programmed on my Intek and I didn't remember the channel. Anyway this is the place to be while Sunday activities are considered. The powerful TV transmitter splashes on UHF strongly but you can locate yourself so that the man made hills and piles of landmasses are between the PMR station and the Pirita high power TV-mast.
I have now tested several QTH's around Tallinn and my ranking list is as follows
1 The hill behind the Marjamäe Loss
2 Paljassaare Poolsaar
4. At the crossroads of Majak and Lasnamäe
Probably the Kopli Poolsaar is not very wise selection because those military installations are not necessarily the best places to run your field day activities. I have some earlier experiences from Cyprus in 1991 when I was listening my scanner radio beside the road at Dhekilia S.B.A. British M.P. Land Rover was immediately on site and at the end they let me go, yes with my scanner radio.
My log is as follows
and couple of stations I could not identify but I gave them reports, one was perhaps Aivar.
Vy nice PMR Sunday indeed, Tuhanned tänud QSOd eest ja pikk sided/73!
