Pekka Ketonen, OH1TV and myself will have another DX-pedition at the end of February, 2015. We will be QRV from Lord Howe Island between February 22-28 with the call sign VK9LC.
We will have two stations including K3's, a 2-el tribander for 14/21/28, a 2-el monobander for 24, a 3-el yagi for 50 and dipoles for 7, 10 and 18 MHz. Our QTH will be on the north-eastern corner of the island and we hope to get antennas high enough for good take off to Europe, North America and Asia. During the week we will also dedicate time for South-America and Africa. SSB will be the main mode but our plan is to be also on CW.
We are not sure about 24/7 availability of the net, but somehow we try to download our logs daily. QSO checking via Clublog.
QSL cards either directly to OH2YY or SRAL QSL bureau.
Looking forward to meet you in the pileups!
I spent one week in Bhutan with my good friend Pekka, OH1TV. We used the callsign A52O. We were staying at the Mandala Resort close to the city of Paro. The QTH was up on a hill facing to north and we believed it should give an excellent take off to North America. To our dissapointment the Paro valley, down from our QTH, was too narrow and the hill on the other side far too high so that we hardly heard any signals from that direction. Take off to Europe was excellent and the majority of our 4000+ QSO's came from there. Anyway, we were pleased to have QSO's to all continents, even though the North American propagation was a big dissapointment.
We were using 2 pcs of K3's but due to a technical problem with one of them, we were forced to use only one radio. We had a 2-el tribander for 14/21/28MHz and a 2-el duobander for 18/24MHz. Both antennas were working just fine. We also had dipoles for 10 and 7MHz and a 3-element yagi for 50MHz but due to the mentioned problem with one radio, we decided to stay on frequencies 14 to 28MHz. For the very same reason the CW-operation was rather limited.
The pile-ups were nice, the audience was behaving very well and we believe that we managed to give a new one or at least new bands to quite many of you. Thanks for participating.
QSO checking can be done using the link below and later on using LotW. QSL cards dirctly to the home address of OH2YY or via SRAL QSL bureau.
All QSL's either direct to Pekka Ahlqvist, OH2YY, Vapaalanpolku 8B, 01650 Vantaa, Finland or via SRAL QSL bureau. I'm also using LoTW.
