IARU HF contest as OL7HQ 20m CW + INBAND





   Again, after a year we were a part of the national OL7HQ call. Last years we run 15m, this one it was 20m and CW. Unfortunately I was really busy before Friedrichshafen with some new parts for: RemoteQTH.com. I wanted to prepare more new things to the contest but the only one I could do was inband antenna... Thanks to Pavel OK1MU, we repaired old tri-band dipole and installed it on the tree into abt 13m. These inband antennas are more than 350m from the closest TX antenna and in the West direction. So together with high IP preamp  it worked quite well! There is still big room for improvemets so I hope to find more free time and prepare more parts for inband.

   And to the contest, the condx was good but participation from NA is still really low. Anyway, it looks on the best number of mults on 20m (cw + ssb) ever! On CW we made 171 JA and 600 NA.
Thank you for all QSO, 20m CW team: Pavel OK1MU, Franta OK1DF, Vlada OK1CW, Petr OK7AN and Jan OK2ZAW.

CQ WPX CW new category: bathroom building :)  part 1





   We spoke about the bathroom for long years. We spend a lot of days at QTH, sometime more than a week or two. Also during the contest the shower is perfect and refreshing thing. 

   And because Pavel OK1MU was somewhere in EK and rest OPs were not interestes in the contest, we have decided to start with bathroom building. CQ WPX CW was a good chance to test new DELL PC with Intel I7 CPU as CW + RTTY skimmer. These CPUs are incredible! More than 2k CW decoders and abt 100 on RTTY and CPU runs only on abt 15 percent! What more, power consumption is only 38W !?! Condx looked great during the Saturday morning. Look at 20m band:


Unfortunately magnetic storm reversed it...

So we were happy to spending the time with something more funny and useful to the future!
