10 GHz from a boot

Is it possible to work 3 cm NAC contest from a boot ?

We know that the antennas for microwave can be very small, but small enougth for a boot ?

Yes, if the boot is big enougth.

I found the big boot about 1 km from my home, it was build in 2017 in connection with the Danish Scouts Jamboree (37.000 scouts).

A cold Marts evening I went out to the boot, with my small 48 cm setup, with only 1 W.

With only 2 degrees, you wont stay for long time, so only worked 5 qso’s (not much activity).

ODX PA0T 283 km, ok with 1 W on flat conditions…
