My QTH is on my island named Kalvoya, which is part of a larger island, Smola.
The station is remotely controlled via a 5GHz radiolink from home location in Kristiansund city. The LOS distance is about 28km. The link is capable of 50 MBits/s. It functions flawlessly in all sorts of weather conditions. The station is controlled, including two-way sound, without PC on the remote side using products from www.remoterig.com .
My favourite band is the 75/80m where I have a fullsize 4square phased by the Comtek unit. The 4square has been up and running from March 29th 2010
Additional antennas at the remote location: OB11-5 yagi with Prosistel rotor, 1/4w vertical for the 40m band,2x Comtek phased Titanex V160HD 27m verticals for the 160m band and a 5el LFA yagi for the 6m band.
I also have a selection of Beverages for the low bands. The longest one is 650m pointing west (pointing to New York).
There is also a couple of LightHouses on the island. Please indicate whether you want this info on the QSL-card.
