2012-05-22 : May NAC microwave contest
Nice wx and on the wx radar map I say that there was nice thunder over Helsingör/Helsingborg area (about JO66GA) and found that it was in direction of OZ1FF. Made a sked with him via KST and then we worked easy during the first minutes of the contest. A bit later the thunder was gone and only some rain was left and no more RS QSO for that evening. But I got one nice RS QSO over 530 km distance.

Else there was easy and difficult QSO. But only one QSO on 9cm with SM7ECM. Tried with several other stations for example OH2AXH (13cm) and SM5QA (3cm) but no QSO.

2012-06-29 : RS QSO
This day I have seen nice thunder moving slowly towards my QTH but day get late and thunder less intensive. Found a small one in boarder between Germany and Polen with scatter point about JO73CV, see small rain on the radar map. Got one QSO with DL6ABC with nice rain scatter signals.

Tried also with DL6NAA, OK1JKT, DO1UKA and DL4DTU. DL4DTU heard DO1UKA calling me on SSB on our sked QRG but I didn't hear anything of him.

Later in the evening the larger rain came to the same position as the small one and then I late that evening also worked OK1JKT with very nice signal. During a sked with SP6ASD (JO81LD) via scatter point JO73IV I got called by OK1JKT with very nice signals and then an easy rain scatter QSO was completed witn 55s/55s signals. Tried several times with SP6ASD but at 2230z we ended and I switched of the station for this day.

During the evening I alose tried with OZ9PP but no QSO.

2012-07-03 : 2m NAC contest and Baltic Sea microwave tropo
Nice wx this day and very calm and nice evening. Switched on the radio at 19.10z looking for DX-stations on the 2m NAC contest with my big 6 element yagi and the big 2W power into it. Worked only two stations and there was very few stations on the CW part of the band.

So I checked the conds on the microwave bands this evening and found that it was nice sea duct over the Baltic Sea towards the OH2SHF beacon in Finland and the DB0VC beacon in Germany. Checked other beacons also but nil. Some more stations notice the conds so there were some QSO this evening on the microwave bands also. Well I got the same number of QSO here as on 2m e.g. 2 QSO!

Maybe I spent to much time on microwave bands compare to all stations QRV on the 2m band contest. But when I didn't find any stations on 2m CW I easily moved up to the higher bands.

2012-07-06 : Rain scatter over Baltic Sea
Strange wx today with very foggy and rainy day but very warmer and nice evening with sun and a good bath in the Baltic Sea, for sure the bath was not a warm bath but very nice.

Later during the evening a thunder storm mover over the Baltic Sea and a started to listen for the few beacons available for rain scatter study. It was only ES0SHF on 23cm and SK1SHH on 3cm. SK1SHH is using parabolic antenna towards north to SM0 (why?) is I don't normally hear it. Some changes even on 23cm via rain scatter.

2012-07-07 : July Field Day Contest
During the weekend 7-8 July the summer field day contest work going and I was active only during the first 6 hours. During the rest of the contest I was away on vaction travel.

I worked some long distance QSO on 23cm via sked on ON4KST and as usually most of them via air plane scatter (AS)...

2012-07-24 : July NAC microwave contest 
A normal NAC microwave contest with no conds even it's summer and can be nice conds over the sea. One day later it was nice conds towards OH/ES but then very low activity.

This evenings happning was a new locator square on 9cm when I worked SM7DTE in JO75. He was using low power station with only 10 mW output but hopefully much more next contest.

Else bad on 3cm as usally....

2012-07-25 : Baltic Sea Tropo to OH
During the evening of 25 July I listen to the OH beacons and especially OH3SHF which I heard on 13, 9 and 3cm this evening. I got one contact with OH3LWP after some SMS traffic but only 13cm. He only have 13, 6 and 3cm QRV. At time of QSO 13cm was open and we made a nice QSO. 9cm he was not QRV and I not QRV on 6cm. The 3cm band was not open at that time and at the later time he was not QRV.

During that evening of 31 July I worked some QSO during NAC Open contest the 5'e Tuesday of the month.

The 4 of August I worked DB6NT easy via RS on 3cm.

144 MHz QSO

2012-08-04 : Estonian Open VUSHF FD 2012 (1296 MHz)
The Estonia Open FD contest is a very nice contest giving a good opportunity to use the good conds over Baltic Sea if they are present. This weekend the conds was very nice during the whole weekend followed by a rainy Monday.

I was only active during the 1296 MHz contest there activity was good and I was more or less calling CQ into OH/ES/YL/LY most of the time. Petty that I didn't get any QSO with OH or SP this time and very little activity from LY. Well the activity from SM was not so good either.

But good activity from ES and YL. But the duplicate QSO timeout make the contest more active because without that rule the contest time will be more empty or more CQ without any response.

Thanks for a nice contest and good conds and see you 2013!

2012-09-16 : Sunday conds?
This weekend there was some indication that it could be good conds on the higher bands e.g. above 1 GHz. I think there were some conds on 2m but I'm not sure.

I started my remote station when I saw a dx-spot from OZ2LD working F-station on 23cm. Not sure I now after the weekend saw correct because I didn't find any conds. I tried with F5DQK but nothing in my receiver and nil at his end. So no conds (?) well I didn't find them.

In the evening I found that SP4MPB have requested a sked on 13cm so we tried and that when very nice with a new station in the 13 cm logbook and square number 43 on this band. Thanks!

2012-10-06...07 : REG 1 contest
October REG 1 contest and finally a contest on the high bands and maybe the last with SM on 2320 MHz(?). From 1 of October we only have access to the band above 2400 MHz but some of us have permission until end of this year.

My goal was to work up to 10 long distance QSO on 23cm. But I didn't get so many QSO on 23cm as total and far from 10 long distance QSO. Tried to get attention on KST but it didn't work out well this time. Maybe I was QRV wrong hours? Was QRV in the beginning until 20:00z and in the morning 05:00z-06:30z.

Did get a good start with OL9W on both 23cm and 13cm. Then it got a bit slow. The timing with airplane was not perfect sometimes but some QSO was very perfect. For example DF0MU on 23cm was a very nice and it was very close for a 13cm QSO on another airplane a bit later.

So thanks for a nice contest but hope for more QSO next time!
All QSO made on CW from my side.

DF0MU QSO on 23cm

2012-10-16 : October NAC 23cm
One hour late to the contest and no TV channel for me to see the soccer game between Germany and Sweden. Yes I missed something! Sweden changed that game the last 30 minutes from 4-0 to 4-4 in Berlin, nice! But without TV I enjoyed the NAC 23cm contest.

Regarding the evenings contest game I mostly was calling CW towards east and south-east direction on normal QRG 1296.185 MHz. Not so many QSO on the CQ but some good one via sked on ON4KST.

No tropo conds so most QSO was done via airplane as usually. I also tried with YL2GD in KO37ML and we heard each other via one small airplane but too short and also too late in the contest. We may try more next time.

This is the result from the Swedish station SM7LCB:

2012-12-26 : Jultest 23cm
Not QRV for more then a month with my remote station. During Christmas holiday we travel to Öland and the remote station. Find that all is working nice and think that its the DDNS handling who have failed. Seems I fixed that now and hope it will work now. Need to fix a backup plane for failing DDNS handling.

I was able to enjoy the Christmas contest (Jultest) this year but only the short 1 hour 23cm section of the contest. The previous 3 hours were allocated to 2m and 70cm. Maybe we can make one section for four hours running all bands 2 meter and up?

Well worked a few stations with the help of ON4KST (as usually). All QSO was worked with very nice AS signals as you can hear on the recording below. I have uploaded the complete QSO just to illustrate how fast signals can come up from nothing.

Seems to be last contest for 2012 so best wishes for a new year with many nice radio contacts,
