The shortest day, 10 meters still going strong

Five days ago I switched over to the mobile version of the Albrecht, because I want to make some small modifications to the internal power supply of the AE497W.  KQ2H was fine today, but yesterday it was another story. The signal didn’t exceed S5, and I had a hard time getting into the repeater system. This was the display of the Albrecht AE485S:

KQ2H only S3 on average, a far cry from the 9+10dB I was used to.

Today everything was back to normal. Looking forward to more sunspots, a higher flux and the longest day!
