The playground for contesters - ITU:18 - CQ:14 - Loc:JO46XC


Opdateret: 6.2.2020

[Update: 28. January 2020]

24-26 January became an absolutely exciting weekend in Stjær together with EI5KF Gerard as well as many other Danish guests and helpers.
The weekend started on Thursday when Gerard and Andrew prepared antennas and hung up a 160m dipole. I arrived on Friday morning and during the day we got 8 40 meter long radials rolled out to the Titanex vertical. It is a free standing aluminum mast at 26.7 meters height with an adjustable joint at the bottom so that it can resonate in the right place.

As the receiving antenna, we had a Beverage system with two double wires with a switching system so we could listen in four directions - one at a time. A really good system to exclude powerful stations from the EU when driving America. At the same time, we had set the receiver to be able to listen to both beverage, vertical, dipole and two of them at the same time. K3 is fine with Diversity on the two receivers.

The TX plan was that we wanted to combine vertical and dipole so we sent on both of them at the same time and it worked fine. Then, when open to DX, we would switch over and send the entire power to the vertical, since that is the DX antenna.
It was a really good plan except that we got problems every time we changed the Stack Match switch. At 3 o'clock between Saturday and Sunday, Alex OZ7AM and I messed around with flashlights to shift the 60 meter coax for the vertical. It was a not-so-pleasant experience, but it is part of every real contest, hi hi.

Operators were EI5KF and OZ2I with OZ7AM as a guest operator a few hours overnight between Saturday and Sunday. We had visits from OZ1ADL, OZ4AAL, OZ5KU with family as well as OZ4VW.

Thank you for QSO to: OZØB, OZ2TF, OZ1AAR, OZ3SM, OZ8AE, OZ1LO, OZ7YY, OZ4MD, OZ4CG, OZ8SW, OU2V - I hope I haven't forgotten anyone; o)

Also take a look at https://oz5e.dk/2020-CQ-160-OZ5E

ps. This is the first time I've run as assisted and used DX-Cluster, RBN and Bandmap. I must say that it is pure pleasure to run S&P - click in band folder, press F4 and it runs. But I found that there are many errors in the call signals, so you have to listen once if it is also correct.

We have planned a Multi Operator operation and we do have a guest operator from Ireland; EI5KF Gerard. More of you will recognize his call sign from many CW Contests thrue the years.
Gerard has got a Danish call sign; OU5KF and are sometime active from his "base" in Denmark placed on the island of Fanoe. We look forward to be on the air with OZ5E call sign in the 160m contest. Dont hesitate to call us if you hear us on the TopBand.
