Hej!

Kommer köra Single Band 15 HP (Non-Assisted) från stationen RA3A.

Anropssignal RA3A eller RM2D

Första delmålet blir att slå ryska rekordet... Hoppas på conds i stil med de vi haft sista veckorna.

Väl mött i CQWW på 15 meter!

73 de RM2D, Mats


PS Bilden ser litet skev ut men var enda sättet att få plats med 50 meters mast i en bild...

Som vanligt är inget 100% definitivt i Ryssland... Måste ansöka om ryskt medborgarskap för att få tillåtelse att besöka RA3A (som ligger på ett område med känslig forskning...).

Det blir Single Band 20 meter HP i stället från RM5A (med call RM5A).

Inte så pjåkigt heller med tanke på att det finns 3 x 5 element wide-spaced yagis @ 50 meter samt ett antal fasta 20 meters yagi mot EU och Japan.

73 och CUL i CQWW från RM5A!

(Likväl försök att attackera ryska rekordet) 1 UA1DZ 1989 SO HP 20M 765,545 2,067 38 117

Riktig radioamatör!
Ja lycka till, konsen ser väl lovande ut och med den antennparken så är nog singel 20 ett roligt val.

Inte ryskt rekord men skoj ändå. Var litet för dåligt öppet på nätterna för att komma upp i rätt poängnivå.

Hoppas det räcker en bit ändå.

Tack för alla skandinaviska QSO!

First Single Band 20 HP (non-assisted) entry for me ever in CQWW CW.

The goal was to see how the old Russian Record from 1989 (UA1DZ S.K) could
survive in 2013 CQWW with more participants, more available multipliers, new
computerized technology, better equipment and whatever else...

When I was offered to use the excellent RM5A station located 100 km (60 miles)
west of Moscow City for a 20 meter efftort, I could not resist.

Conditions were good but not extraordinary. 20 meters was open already from the
start at 4 AM local time and also during daytime my impression was that band
kept up in good shape. Second night (Saturday to Sunday) was less exciting. I
even allowed myself to sleep about 5 hours, with a short interruption for 4-5
Carribean multipliers at 00 UTC. Second day was in parity with the first day,
but band quickly became in poor shape between 17-18 UTC. As I needed to be
back in Moscow Monday morning, operation was terminated at 18 UTC.

(As a funny coincidence, electricity was lost in the whole region where RM5A is
located, just seconds before I was going to leave the house 6 hours before the
end of the contest. As I was told, band opened up nicely again in the night,
and who knows... I might have been able to challenge George Rumyantsev's
(UA1DZ) record in case I would patiently have remained in operation all
time...

However, destiny always rules and for my own peace of soul, I convince myself
that electricity would not have returned until the end of the contest :)

The legendary UA1DZ's record remained untouched (at least by me) and next year
I will try to challenge another single band record instead :)


Thank you RD3BW Oleg, for allowing me to use your excellent station.

Thank you RA5A, Leo, for preparig the station so nicely.

73 and see you all hopefully from my small holiday style DX Expedition as
XV2LRR (Nov 29th - Dec 14th).
