I find a new toy. Big Boy's toy. Yeah! ISS - The Space Station.
I have entertain myself via its digipeater qso's. If you're reading this as you seen me on the ISS, please reply to ISS messages with: RR ( RogerRoger ), then signal (599 at the best) and if you have time to include your locator with it, it fullfill's satellite qso requirements. Call, raport and locator. SWL's are more than welcome. (eQSL)
If you're not keyboard operator, you can program your radio's key's sucha way, that it sends such confirmation message to other station by pressing the key. AMSAT has given a wish NOT to operate ISS BBS, as it is not in use anymore and beside that hogs everyones air time. If you dont know how to get on the air, I can guide you on to that.
Since January 16'th 2012, I been quite active on satellites, as they are nice challenge with normal working.
My first satellite qso was surprisingly with OH5LK.
I had first qso with ISS ( PI9ISS ) at April 22 2012 with Mr. Andre Kuipers
At February 21'st 2013, I had qso with K4FEG on AO-07 (mode-b) satellite and we made apparently world's second longest qso via it. 7853 km.
Extra long qso was repeated at May 15'th 2013 with K4FEG. To proof that the first qso wasnt about of pure luck, we tried hard for second qso and made it. So - having difficult qsos, theres a need of some luck but needs lots of work as well.
At March 14'th 2013, I got my 1000'th satellite qso ( With RA1AKR )
I got my very first qso to Alaska, at May 13, with KL7R via FO-29.
If you wish to have a try for such satellite qso, please send email to me and we see what we can do for it! You find my email above my biography tab on this page. I seem to have good setup for long path qso's.
After the 6m band opens, I very likely will be found from there at SSB area of the band. Give a call, and I'll be there with you.
After years wait at July 4'th 2014, I manage to have my all times first Japanese qso; JA4DND, 50.130Mhz.
Domo Arigato Hiromi san.
I was gently forced to install monoband dipole at the beginning of December 2014. My first HF qso was Dec. 6 2014 with FG4NN.
This building where I live
(Tower finally arrive at Nov. 28'th and we got it installed. But then start very rough time, with technical issues.)
Dec. 31'st was the day, when systems start working and first satellite qsos were operated.
Talks about" Radio blackout's" may not mean just this.. But if you look this, as you havent heard me on satellites or other bands - This is the reason.
