QO-100 Field Day

A QO-100 field day was organized by Francois (3B8BAN) and Patrice (3B8FA) on Saturday 30 April 2022. The location was Buttes a L’Herbe, Grand Gaube. They had 2 QO-100 portable stations on the air and made many QSO’s to HAM’s worldwide, so quite a successful day. They also made QSO’s with almost all the 3B8 HAMs QRV on QO-100 namely 3B8BAL, 3B8BAU, 3B8DU, 3B8GF, as well as between themselves at 1M distance with the signal going approx. 72,000 Km (from Earth to Orbit and back). A great achievement and good rehearsal for international emergency communications in case required. Great work guys, congratulations.
