Brandon, KG6YPI needs your help: http://www.gofundme.com/ixs5rs

Thank you for visiting the QRZ.COM site of HB9EKK!

Please download a client on www.remotehams.com and enjoy my remoted EK890 receiver from Rohde & Schwarz.

All of my QSO's are stored in the new QRZ.COM-Logbook - please confirm there. Thanks for your understanding. PLEASE PRINT OUT THE LOOGBOOK OUTTAKE BELOW AND GET AN INSTANT QSL-CONFIRMATION, SINCE YOUR CALLSIGN WILL SHOW UP JUST AFTER OUR QSO.

After being HE9RRB and HB3YSG, I've got my class 1 CEPT licence in MAY 2008 and I'm also a member of the USKA (Union of Swiss short wave amateurs, www.uska.ch). Since I'm living in different QTH's, I'm using my remote base station, which has been set up with the technical support of HB9AZT (www.radiohill.ch) and HB9AAZ.

Remote Rig with Kenwood TS-2000, ACOM 2000A, PC and misc. Equipement:

 

Backside of the Rig with ACOM antenna switch and a lot of RF-blockers:

The remote station is located nearby Entlebuch, closed to the famous city of Lucerne (www.luzern.org), 1200 meters above sea level. The TX is a Kenwood TS2000, remoted with the software of Roger, W8RJ (www.remotehams.com). My microphone is a Logitech PC-Headset. The amplifier is an ACOM 2000A (www.hf-power.com). I watch the control panel of my ACOM 2000A with the SKYPE cam, further I control my amplifier with the microbit control panel from remoterig (www.remoterig.com). For 40m to 10m a Mosley PRO-67-C3 does the job (www.mosley-electronics.com/pages/amateur/pro67c3.htm). For the low bands works a full size Windom (www.hb9cru.ch). For the 2m and 70cm bands is a VX-2000 from Diamond installed (www.diamond-ant.jp). The whole antenna array works 18 meters over ground and is surrounded by a protected biological biosphere. The ground there contents a lot of water, which helps to increase the local propagation.

This remote base station can be controlled with any personal computer or laptop from anywhere. All I need is a high-Q internet access, a PC/laptop and a USB-headset (www.logitech.com). To change the antenna direction I'm using a hy-gain rotor T-2XDX with DCU-1 pathfinder, which can be remoted via RS-232, resp. the integrated rotor control function of remotehams (www.remotehams.com). To guarantee enough AC-power, I ordered an extra strong powerline (length: 500m) with 3 x 220 Volts / 13 A (one of them 13A+, for the amplifier). The location doesn't allow access by trucks or cars. Each part had to be brought up on feet - the HAM hobby is definitely no couch potato issue!

My hompage, hb9ekk.ch, is currently under construction and will be activated soon. Hope to meet you down the log and wish you vy 73's!enlightened
