From Sundsvalls Radio Amateurs: SM3BQC/Arne, SM3ESX/Christer, SM3FJF/Jörgen and SM3FWT/Hans

We cut the high pine tree, which turned out to be 26 meter high. We mount and raise the mast to 20 meters height. Now the Tribander is on 20 meter and the 40 meters beam is on 24 meter. We can raise the mast 9 meter more. But we will wait until next summer and se how it works until then.

FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 13, 2002

SM3BQC/Arne and SM3FJF/Jörgen are taking down the dipole antennas for 80- and 40 meters which have been mounted in some of the threes. Vi also marked the high pine tree which we must cut down before we can raise the mast. The treetop will otherwise damage the beams in heavy wind.

The rotor was mounted in the right position, and the feeders and the rotor cable were mounted in the uppermost mast section. Mast section 2 was put together. It began to getting dark so we hade to finish the work for the day.

We realised that before we rise the mast we must cut down a big pine tree. Otherwise we don't know what will happened if it will become very windy weather.

OPEN HOUSE AT SI9AM JULY 19 - 21, 2002 WITH ROYAL VISIT ON JULY 19, 2002

SI9AM

As traditional we arranged Open House at SI9AM in connection with the celebration of the 105th Anniversary of King Chulalongkorn´s royal visit to Utanede, Sweden, July 19, 2002. On July 19, 2002 a new building, a Teak House, was dedicated. Many persons from the government authorities had come to Utanede to take part of the celebrations.

The Teak House, which is built in teak, is a gift from the Royal Forest Department in Bangkok. Ragunda Municipality and Fine Arts Department in Thailand made the design of the Teak House and the Teak House is produced in Auyttaya north of Bangkok and shipped by boat to Sweden. It is built up during the early summer. The Teak House is located near the Thai Pavilion and around the Teak House there is a hedge and an entrance portal in Thai style.

In the park you could see Thai Folk Dance Performance, presented by Rajabhat Institute Surin, and also a lot of Thai handicraft.

In the Thai delegation was M.R. Chakrarot Chitrabongs, Secretary General Office of National Culture Commission. He is also a radio amateur with the call HS1VRD. After the official program we could show our Visitor´s Amateur Radio Station SI9AM for HS1VRD, M.R. Chakrarot Chitrabongs, Ms Phinranai Chotikanta and Lars Forslund from Ragunda municipality. HS1VRD, M.R. Chakrarot Chitrabongs hadn't heard about SI9AM and he showed a great interest when we told him how we had built up this Rent-a-QTH. We handed over brochures and the newspaper QTC from our official opening on July 19, 2000. HS1VRD, M.R. Chakrarot Chitrabongs promised to inform other hams in his district about this Visitor´s Amateur Radio Station, near the Thai Pavilion.

During the Open House days we worked about 1000 QSO´s, mostly on 20 meter. Operators during these days has been SM3CER/Janne, SM3CVM/Lars, SM3EAE/Lars, SM3FJF/Jörgen, SM6JOC/Björn, SM3LIV/Ulla, SM3SWZ/Sven-Henrik, SM6WXA/Janne and SM6WXL/Gunnel and a several time there were pile up on the unique call SI9AM.

From Jemtlands radioamatörer, SM3EAE/Lars

This Sunday it was time for us to mount the two beams. We have bought a 2-element beam for 40 meter and tribander beam for 10-15-20 meter. We started to mount the beam for 40 meter. Then it was time to lift the beam on the mast. SM3ESX/Christer had climb up in the mast and the other lifted it up to him and after that he worked to screw it on the mast tube. The only problem we got was a rope that had been jammed. We didn't reach it but with help of a long gardening tool we managed to put away the rope.

We also mount the tribander for 10-15-20 meter. It was more details and we had to look in the mounting manual a lot of times to put everything on the right place. But at least it was time to lift this beam on the mast. Even this time SM3ESX/Christer climbed up in the mast, but this time he was dressed in a raincoat because of the rain. Now it was three hams who lifted the mast, we made it very slowly and managed to get the beam on its right place and SM3ESX/Christer screw it on the mast tube.

SM3ESX/Christer and SM3JVJ/Lars connected some feeders and rotator cables in the electrical cabinet on the mast. In the afternoon all hams tested if the motor on the mast worked and with just a few simple operations we got the motor to start working and all hams cheered.

CQ WW WPX CONTEST,
SATURDAY AND SUNDAY JUNE 25- 26, 2002

SI9AM

For the first time we prepared to work all the 48 hours in a contest from SI9AM. The contest team: SM3CER/Janne, SM3CVM/Lars, SM3CWE/Owe, SM3EAE/Lars, SM3FJF/Jörgen, SM3VAC/Magnus and SM3WMU/Tomas.

A lot planning were done before the contest. SM3CER/Janne had made a schedule how the seven operators were going to work during the contest. SM3FJF/Jörgen had bought food and drink and SM3BQC/Arne had lent us his W3DZZ, which we were going to connect with a listening equipment.

On Friday evening May 24 SM3CER/Janne, SM3EAE/Lars and SM3CWE/Owe came to start the preparations for the contest. Among other things we installed the TR Contest Logging Program which is sponsored by Jonit in Östersund and SM3OJR/Jonathan. Later in the evening SM3CVM/Lars, SM3VAC/Magnus, SM3WMU/Tomas and SM3FJF/Jörgen arrived.

We had booked some rooms at Holmstagården for the operator to use as resting rooms.

SM3VAC/Magnus and SM3WMU/Tomas worked the first spell of contest.

On Saturday we tried to connect two computers with each other, to use in the contest, but we failed.

The night before Sunday we noticed that the Multiband Antenna FD4 didn't work, then we were lucky that we had the W3DZZ, which we mounted in a 20-meter high flagstaff. We could now work a lot of DX with low power on 80 and 40 meters.

On Sunday evening SM3VAC/Magnus, SM3WMU/Tomas and SM3FJF/Jörgen went home because they were going to work early in Monday morning.

At midnight SM3CVM/Lars and SM3EAE/Lars went home. SM3CER/Janne and SM3CWE/Owe worked the last spell.

When the contest was over we have logged about 1.825 QSO:s.

We were very pleased with the equipment and we can really offer all visitors a pleasant time at SI9AM.

EducationWe need more new hams in our amateur radio clubs in Sweden, therefore we arranged an amateur radio education during two weekends. The aim were to educate for the certificate of license class 2 (Klass 2). The education took place at Holmsta Gård in Utanede where the pupils and the teachers also stayed overnight.

Participants were:
Ann-Sofie Israelsson, Sundsvall
Hans Israelsson, Sundsvall
Vivan Johansson, Långträsk
Erik Olsson, Delsbo
Nicklas Norin, Hudiksvall
Ari Mikkola, Kramfors

SM2XHI/Leif, Långträsk operated from SI9AM the whole weekend

Teachers were:

SM3IEL/Lennart in Järkvissle helped us when we showed 'real' QSO traffic.
