This year is the 50th anniversary of my radio amateur license.
I wish to do something I've always dreamed of. Go to a 'wanted'
So far I have thought of Faeroes or Aland Islands, of which
it seems Faeroes to be
the most wanted country, or perhaps VP5 or some other tropical
However, I have no previous experience, and
neither the necessary antenna-equipment.
Any suggestions to how and where to go? And what to bring?
Anytime this year between April and September?
11th, 2005: 1st QSOs in ten years today:
(rst 569) and LY4BR (rst 579) on 7 Mhz
with a 2,5 m MFJ HF mobile antenna
April 15th: Improving a bit.
Now my old 40 m windom is lying on the roof of our house!
with the following results on 20 meter:
14.30 UTC 4KR6ØS
599, 15.25 UTC UA9CCL 599, 16.20 UTC ZA1MI 579, 1750 UTC 5R8FU
and on 40 meter: 1828 UTC R3K 599, 0407
Prepare to put
it up 2 meters above the roof tomorrow, Saturday.
Saturday April 16th:
Now I'm back on the air again!
WAC during the first 24 hours:
Korea, Indonesia, Malagasy, Brazil, USA and Andorra
and a russian arctic expedition at 89° N, near the North Pole.
Wednesday, May 4th:
Just found that my windom works on 10 and 18 Mhz, too!
Well, just 5w output on 10Mhz, but worked DX: 4X4 and TA3 last night.
Now 10 countries worked.
Now also on 18Mhz with 40w output. 2 countries worked.
That means LI6CF will be on all bands from
10 to 160 m.
However, 28Mhz seems almost dead at present.
Tuesday, May 10th, 2005
Now I am really back again, with my new (used) ICOM 757
Ready for all bands CW and SSB and will be as LI6CF
How is it to be back after 10 years QRT?
Some thoughts about contests anno 2005.
last day QRV from this QTH. Now moving to Ulefoss, Telemark
apprx. 59°17'N 9°14'E, about 100 km westward.
will be back again late in March or first part of April from here:
YES, I'M BACK ON AIR AGAIN!
23rd at 1506 made the first QSO with UE6ANT on 20 m with my antenna
half way lying on the roof, hanging down from two tall trees, the
one in the middle of the picture,
and the one left for the TV-antenna.
First DX was AE1N the nest day, then 7Q7VB on 30 m followed by FS/DL7DF
on 80 m !!!
So with part of the antenna covered with snow (have about 2 feet/60cm
on the roof)
worked TO2ANT and FS/DL7DF on 40 m and NP2 ON 20 m.
Finally, on March 3rd, raised the antenna half meter (2 inches) above
and got EX8MLE on 40 m, followed the next day by HQ9F both on 80,
40, 30 and 20 m.
Who can ask for more? I am happy again.
March 24th: Up more than 2 meters above roof, and first one to come
was HC8, new one!
now California is THAT away (NW)
towards NE (Japan etc)
ESE (Arabia, Indian Ocean)
SE towards Malagasy and Reunion.
July 2006:The windom out to the left with the baloon,
in center the new dipole, 2x3m (6-12-18m) or 2x7m (15-30m)
August 2006: Now also 2x20m (20-40-80m) dipole changeable with the
May, 2007 - antenna-park has changed. None is higher than about 7-8
m above ground (2m above roof)
At long last I finally got a beam up again.....:
