Completed contacts with 73 diferent stations via AO-73 satellite
( RA9LR Vladimir was 73th QSO) for 73onAO-73 award by Paul N8HM, (12.Mar.2015)
Promis to Paul new 73 uniqe stn ( now on no:150 ( 73 + 73 ( duble number made and going to treple figure ) )
Also made my 700 QSO via Sat. One off my satellite antennas setup was 8el Oblong 144MHz by 9A5KM

Very proud on my 9a2ki.net web page in progres ( temporarly off ) .

Interesting is posibility to use Amateur Satellites as aditional band. In one pass via AO-73 sat have QSO with UN9L station , distance 4600 km.
My ODX via sat is TR8CA Alan ( 5.040 km via FO-29 and AO-7 satelittes )
Still waiting for transatalintic QSO...
If you have info about longer distace via AO-73 ( or via any other sat ) send me info on my e-mail Many thanks to Paul N8HM for very nice award ( received to my adrees 02.May 2015 ) 73 on AO-73 sat Award no # 17 .

Very nice expirience with simple equipment.Also all worked stations oprators perfect and very easy to contact.
CN2AA caled once and after few QSOs they give me a call...
Called and not worked statios:V47T PJ6/OH3JR 5R8SV YW4D C92ZO PS2T PZ5W K1TO ( big pileup or very bad copy- my antenna not enough for solid QSO )... Nice to be part off it.... . .
Last night ( 29.Feb.2016 ) 7MHz CW operation: some rain made band noise low so stay longer in night ( local time after midnight ) and made lot of interesting QSO with 100W@Dipole antenna up π/2, made by my friend Marijan : EA8AF AB8CC XE1CT N5RB W4AFB W3WW WB2MKX K4JGA VP2V/K6TOP UY0MK WA2T KO4D K3TN VE1WT WA8JXM KA1VE UK8FF VU2TE UA6YX WA1VNR VE2CW W5ZR UN7LV UK8LA AE8EA K0MD N8PW K2TTP WB5RYB . Many thanks to all , specialy to stations who spotted me: K2UG Barry , K0MD Scott, K4JGA Jose.
Another night on 7MHz. 10/11th April 2016. Very low noise level on the band ( after few rainy days ) made me to try new GP ( 9.95m high ,no radials ). It was night for legendes off amateur radio : K1ZZ, Dave 4Z4DX, Duv. PV8ADI, W8FJ, and more interesting stations : YV5EN W4HXH RA9MP NC1T W1BJ and also thanks to Vlad , R9VV for spot... see you next nights ...
Nice day July 14th. 2016 made me put my Satellite equipment on nearby field.. AO-7 sat is not working good. FO-29 passes are away from me. And there are Chinas XW2-F : CW lot of stations 4X1AJ Andrey , RD7P new for me, HA5AJZ Attila and try to call 4Z5CP but Andrey was faster. Next is XW2-C CW QSO with old friend HA1SE Imre, and SSB QSOs with OM3WAN Aloiz and F1RRJ Francis. One more pass before thunderstorm was comeing via XW2-F : SSB calling CQ: EA3CNO cling but not confirmed my raport, and G3YWA Ted not strong but very nice modulation throught sat transponder... Very nice three passes and interesting contacts like usualy via AMSAT... See you next time... .
11th. Nov. 2016. Few days ago, Chris NK1K, heard my SSB signal via AO-7 sat. After few days of trying , finaly made my first ( on my owen callsign ) transatlatic QSO via AMSAT: Nick KB1RVT answer on my CQ AO-7 call. And Dave KB1PVH give me nice 57 , to made my ODX about 6800km. Improvement was on my Antennas setup: aditional 9elY and Power Divider for staccking= 2x 9elY for 432MHh. Also for FO-29 preamplifirer with MGF1302. ( all made by my friend Marjan 9A4DF ) Now is time to rize up my Output Power on UHF ( now is only 10W ).
18.Feb.2017. Again Chris NK1K inform me about his impruvment in RX on 70cm (preamplifirer ). He wants me to try QSO via FO-29 amsat (for him new DXCC / for me first transatlantic QSO via FO-29 ) For him about 2° max el , for me 4.5°. Sat was about 1280km high at the moment of QSO. Weather forecast said rainy night, and I said to Chris if no rain ( my antenna setup is on nearby field , 100℅ /p - and in rainy condition almost imposible to work ) will weakup (for me two o'clock in the night ) Fortunatly rain wait us to make Perfect CW QSO . Thanks to Christopher NK1K who again made me hapy .
see you via AMSAT
