    I bring my Icom IC-7300 to the top of Mont Hereford, Québec, Canada at 2800 feet elevation (875 meters) to do DX contacts, I will be operating on battery and transmitting a full 100W on a 33 foot vertical antenna. Fortunately we can drive all the way up so I can bring all my gears.
    We have a very good and sunny day with low wind, let’s make some DX contacts! (Italy, Slovenia, Spain)
    Due to gusting winds at times, I had to lower volume at some places and cut video segments.
    Note that this recording was on a weekday so less overall activity compared to a weekend.
