My ugly mug in front of my radioshack desk. I added a home built speaker to this setup. 

Mi careto en frente del escritorio de la sala de radio. Falta un altavoz autoconstruido en el hueco de la derecha.

 

As of April 9th, the HexBeam is now 40 feet in the air. Time will tell if it was a worthy effort to raise it up that high. It's missing the 40m fixed dipole.

Desde el 9 de abril 2014 la HexBeam está a 12m de altura. El tiempo dirá si mereció la pena el esfuerzo de subirla tan alta. Falta el dipolo rígido de 40.

Just before lift off!

Below you can see the two towers side by side.

Field Day "Vértices Geodésicos", (more info, in Spanish at www.radioclubhenares.org/dvge/)

Vértices geodésicos - Encuentra toda la información en español en la página del Radioclub Henares RCH www.radioclubhenares.org/dvge/ )

In Spain we have these things called "Vértices Geodésicos", which indicate the highest point within a certain sq. mile area. The Spanish National Geographic Institute uses them to create topographic maps, measure earth movements, changes in altitude, etc... Sometimes they are on top of large mountains, or on manmade structures such as towers; some other times just on a low hill.

There are thousands (over 11,000) of these markers throughout Spain.We, amateur radio operators, go to these markers, setup a portable station, and start DXing providing the VG number (Normaly VG plus the letter for the state follow by the number). We can "activate" them once a year. Once activated we send the log to the website www.radioclubhenares.org/dvge/ and once validated the database its updated.

If you contact any of the station activating this VGs you will be added automatically to the log. Once you have 50 or more contacts you can get a diploma.

You can just check your callsign in our website and download the PDF with your diploma once you qualify for it.

It is an very popular activity for EAs (Spain) amateur radio operators and we get quite a few calls from surrounding countries. As a matter of fact a few stations from outside Spain are actually on the top of the charts as far as contacts.

At the end of the day, its all about having a great field day. A fenomenal excuse to get out of the house and do radio in the middle of nowhere.

Here are some pictures of some of my mobile activities:

HXCC Award Rules - Hexbeam to Hexbeam Century Club Award

(Reproduced here with the permission of W4WB)

OBJECTIVE: The HXCC Award is to recognize the achievement of working at least 100 band-stations that are using a HEX-BEAM type antenna. The 5BHXCC Award recognizes the achievement of working at least 100 stations on each of any bands.

Award: A certificate of achievement will be issued to those qualifying.

Rules:
1. It is based upon the honor system, QSL cards are not required.
2. You are not required to be a HEX-BEAM owner or using a HEX-BEAM to participate. Only the station you work is required to be using a HEX_BEAM type antenna.
3. A HEX-BEAM type antenna means either a factory built HEX-BEAM or a homebrew antenna that utilizes the basic design of the HEX-BEAM.
4. It requires 100 points to qualify for the HXCC Award.
5. There is no time limit on the contacts you make, e.g., a contact in 1997 is valid.
6. Only contacts you make from your stations operating within your entity, as defined in the DXCC rules, will be considered valid.
7. A point is defined as working a station (not an operator) using a HEX-BEAM on a given band. For example, working the same HEX-BEAM station on 18 m, 12 m, and 10 m counts as 3 points. Working different operators at the same physical station does not count as extra points.

b. Date
c. Time
d. Station call sign
e. Freq/Band
f. Mode
g. Reports
h. Op Name
i. HEX-BEAM SN if known or if homebrew

9. Excel electronic file submittal is desired.

Certificate Request: Submit your data to W4WB.
