My latest operations include ZA1KS, a DX-pedition organized by the Amateur Radio Society of Kosovo to Durrës Albania in September 2015 and participation in the CQ WW SSB Contest in October 2015 as ZA/OH2YY also in Durrës Albania. ZA/OH2YY QSL cards via my home address.
All the VK9LC QSL-cards have now been sent either direct or via the Finnish QSL Bureau. Direct cards are naturally still available through my home address.
Pekka, OH1TV and Pekka, OH2YY were QRV at Lord Howe Island on February 22-27, 2015 using the call sign VK9LC. We made 5675 QSO's ( duplicates excluded) with 95 countries (79 on SSB and 71 on CW). By number of QSO's JA (2107) and W (1758) were dominating followed by OH (202), VK (154), I (152), DL (138), UA Eur (122). QSL cards either directly to OH2YY or SRAL QSL bureau.
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 was 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.
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.
