Back to the country as of 16th January and enjoying good conditions on 12 & 10 meters. The local QRM is bearable higher in the spectrum, while it’s getting worse and worse on 17m and below.

Antenna for 80 & 160 has been removed. While I could easily reach EU with very decent signal, only a single QSO was made on 160 and a few more on 80. Local interference prevents any meaningful activity on lower bands. For the fall, the plan is to activate a QTH within the Kathmandu valley, but away from populated areas, covering 160-40m. I have identified a couple of good locations which should not suffer so badly from QRM, as is the case in the city. Till then, will continue to operate higher bands, while also preparing some extra RX stuff for this year’s 6m season.
