Happy New Year 2013 everyone!


Posted: January 1st, 2013 under Hamradio.

fireworks I wish everyone a Happy New Year 2013.

I've been thinking about this page a lot these days when I have had some time off from work. My updates have been few and far between them. Mostly life has been keeping me busy, and radio activity has been low.

Also I'm not sure how many people really read the stuff I write. If I judge by the comments, there are very few. If I look at the statistics, I do have some visitors now and then.

If you read my page and appreciate my postings, I would really be happy if you would post a comment about it and let me know.

Now let's hunt some DX!

Hi David.

Thank you very much for the comment. I sure do appreciate it.

The OH8X experience was incredible. I can’t believe almost 3 years has passed since we visited the station.

Hope to meet you on the air sometime.

Hei !
Very nice web site. Realy like it, my googlge searching device is quite often on your site. Im interested how you worked EME with only horisontal rotor ? That have to be nice. In 2 years time I should build my station from scratch, maybe will need some help, hihi.
Thanks very much and good luck !

Hei Piotr!

Thank you for the comment. I appreciate it very much.

Regarding EME, it is possible to work contacts without an elevation rotor. But you do have limited time to work contacts either on moonrise or moonset. The big benefit of working with no elevation is that you can get up to 6db extra groundgain as it is called. You do not have this when elevating. The drawback with elevating, is that you lose the groundgain, but your noiselevel will probably drop when you start to elevate and you can follow the moon to get addional moontime. My noiselevel is usually low, and my moonset is excellent. That’s what makes it possible for me to work EME.

You can read a lot about it if you head over to W7GJ’s page. He is one of the big stations when it comes to 6M EME.

Good luck with your future new station, and do ask again if you have any questions.
