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!

NEW tower with number 7 at OL7M

   And we are happy again :) After more than 6 month we erected new tower, the highest one. It has got number 7 and there will be fixed stacks to NA. Our plan is 2 x 5el for 20m and 3 x 6 for 15m. We will have another, the same tower, about 70m far away and in the direction to NA. So I hope to put there also 5 el wire yagi for 80m band :)

Special thanks to everyone who helped and contributed to making this project real! Slavek OK1CU, Ondra OK1CDJ, Standa OK1CID, Dan OK1HRA, Pavel OK1MU, Jan OK2ZAW, Milos OK1UOW,  Jarda OK1XUB and his father and our friend Lada.

 And there are some photos from last weekend:
