My report as an operator I can tell you with 18 watts as much as I could to communicate as QSO_EC8AUZ was from the canary islands with a signal report of 55 and from my side signal of 55 and from me to the station it was approximately 57,as S3 signal. ON FREQ 28.490.40 I tried other stations but they did not hear me. I was able to contact three stations on FT8 in the area later in the day. The next day, Monday 29th, I tried to activate the POTA at Wetland Punta Tuna Nature Reserve K-9723, tried on 2m 146.520 over 10min and did not hear anyone, then installed an HF HF antenna on 10 meters and was about 10 to 15min trying to locate signal and there was no one there. It is my first visit to this place and unfortunately I could not have any QSO. but for the next time I can be near, I will try to activate this park in the maunabo area. KP4RK station was able to activate this park this past february 2023. WP4MQQ___73 Hector Rodriguez Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
