2013-05-05 : REG 1 contest May
Nice sunny wx here in Stockholm this weekend. But on Sunday morning I toke some time in house to try the remote station during the contest. Worked several nice QSO via AS towards OK/OM/OL/DL. But sometimes it take very long time to complete a QSO via AS so not so many QSO in my logbook. Most time I spent waiting for a good airplane.

Looked mostly for QSO in 700 and above range so sorry to all other stations on KST which I didn't have time for. I also wanted to spend some sunny hours in the garden. Most of the sked got to a final QSO but OK2M was difficult. Tried several times but no trace on on the waterfall display even when I saw nice airplanes within the SCP, frustrating. But as a summary nice hours at the station and thanks for all QSO, sked...

Didn't work any stations on 13 cm (except SP4MPB). This because the station is to bad (still no preamp) and I wanted to focuses on QSO on 23 cm this weekend.

Hope to upload audio segments for some QSO later...

2013-06-06...07 : Baltic Sea Ducting
During my travel (5 Juni) to my SM7 QTH (remote site) I got a SMS from Ari/OH3LWP that it maybe will be possible conds because high pressure over the Baltic Sea and he want to try on the microwave bands.

During the evening 6 Juni conds were getting stronger over the Baltic Sea and I worked a LY2BJ via ON4KST sked. Later OH2LAK canme QRV on 23 cm and I worked him but with weak signals, I checked OH2SHF after that QSO but nil copy. Send SMS message to OH3LWP but  didn't get any response, to late evening. 

Next evening 7 Juni conds again came up at about 19.30z with ES0SHF being 599 but thats no good indicaiton. ES0SHF need to be more to full scale reading before other beacons will show up. To my suprise I got OH5SHF in log, not to common to hear it. Then I hear OH3SHF on 9 cm and send a SMS to Ari and he responde and we soon worked a nice QSO on 9 cm. After that we also worked on 13 cm, 23 cm and later on 3 cm when the OH3SHF becon came up on 3 cm. Nice with four 721 km QSO on 23, 13, 9 and 3 cm. Bad that I still don't have my 6 cm station QRV.

Thanks for some new squares on the microwave bands. Last update
on 9 cm was 2012-09-25 but on 3 cm it was 2011-08-05, so it was
really time for some new squares!

2013-06-18 : NAC 23 cm contest
This contest began nice. When I switched on the remote station I first checked the beacon band. Weak signal from ES0SHF which is easy to hear if there is any conds over the Baltic Sea. But weak signal indicate bad conds. But then I found LY3II/B in KO15FM so I tuned the antenna and it was very strong. Maybe some conds to east and southeast then.

Because of the nice signals from LY-beacon I started my operation towards LY and work 5 LY stations within 30 minuets, very nice activity. I keep calling on 1296.185 MHz towards LY, YL and ES and worked some more stations in these directions. Then I worked ODX this evening when I tried a QSO with YL2GD. Bit surprised to get him but signals was good.

After the first hour towards east directions I started working stations in other directions but conds was not good and the airplanes was not so helpful as I wanted. Heard OH2AXH and OZ1FF but no complete QSO this evening. Tried with several other stations as ES6FX, SM5AZN, SM6BFE, SM4DXO, LA2Z, ES5PC and DL1SUN.

2013-07-06-07 : REG 1 contest July
This weekend I was active more then I normal are on this kind of 24 hour contest and maybe I work more stations also but it take a lot of time when there is no good tropo conds. All long distance QSO need to be worked via airplane scatter (AS) and as you know i can take several tries to get the right airplane to complete the QSO. I have this weekend very many tries with OK1KUO but finally we made a complete QSO.

As usual I prefer working on 23 cm because my station is "best" on this band. Have 50W out (-cable loss) and 1.9 m dish. Use the same antenna for 13 cm and 9 cm. The 13 cm band is bad mostly because I still don't have any preamp installed. On 9 cm it's better but I need to replace the feeder on all band to get better performance out of the antenna. Later in the contest I tried to get some more 9 cm QSO in the logbook but I didn't work so many QSO on this band.

2013-07-06-07 : After REG 1 contest
During the REG1 contest this weekend I didn't have any tropo conds at all. All QSO was made over then "normal tropo" distance or with help of airplane scatter. I noted during the contest that several stations worked G-stations on long distance (SM7ECM/SM7DTE) but conds never came to my QTH. I tried with G3XDY on 23 cm but no signal.

After the contest I continue to monitor the DX-cluster and ON4KST because if they (ECM/DTE) worked G it maybe can get to me much later but I was not sure it will make it this time. But late in the evening the conds seems to have increased and I checked to see it I can hear GB3MHL beacon and yes it was there on 830 as it shall, so now time to try a QSO again.

I got in touch with John/G3XDY and we started on 23 cm and worked easy. Then I moved him up to 9 cm as I wanted to try that more then 13 cm (because of better equipment on 9 cm). We worked there also and then I moved back to 13 cm. Maybe we misunderstand each other then because i got to 13 cm and maybe John on 3 cm. Well we mad a 13 cm QSO easy also. After that we tried on 3 cm without any signal at all. I still don't have my 6 cm equipment ready, I need to get that done some times to have that band QRV.

2013-08-06...08: Some RS QSO this summer
Seems I missed the nice RS day (27 July) because I was at a scout camp (Space camp 2013) which was visited by Christer Fuglesang.

But now I'm back on Íland and enjoying the nice summer wx and looking for conds on the microwave bands.

I have been working some RS QSO's but not many...
