ON5RZ/Raf, ON7DS/Dirk and
ON4AWT/Fons visit SI9AM
Once again we could welcome ON5RZ/Raf, ON4AWT/Fons and ON7DS/Dirk to SI9AM.
One of the reasons for their visit was to work the UBA HF SSB DX Contest. And during this contest you could follow them, via Live video broadcast.
The guys landed on Skavsta Airport in Sweden on Wednesday January 25, 2012 and had a rental car waiting for them. They made a stop by SM3LIV/Ulla and SM3FJF/Jörgen in Njurunda. SM3JOS/René hade also met up by Ulla and Jörgen. After coffee and sandwiches and a lot of radio talk they continued the trip towards SI9AM in Utanede.
They made a very good result from UBA contest from SI9AM. 990 QSOs and 880.944 points.
Besides running a lot of QSOs they made a trip to Sundsvall and visited SM3JOS/Rene. Another afternoon they visited SM3YKF/Kent.
On Monday morning January 30, 2012 they started their trip back to Belgium. They made a short stop by SM3FJF/Jörgen i Njurunda to give back the keys to SI9AM. Unfortunately it was flight strike that day and they had to stay one night in Stockholm before they could fly back to Brussels Airport.
Welcome back next year 2013.

Work at SI9AM 2012-01-07
We have bought a micro KEYER II and wanted it to work before our Belgian guests arrive. So, in the morning, this Saturday SM3EFS/Lennart and SM3FJF/Jörgen went to Utanede to install the micro KEYER II. On their way to Utanede they also picked up SM3BQC/Arne in Järkvissle.
They started to update some programs in the computers, which took about one hour. After that they began to install the micro KEYER II. After phone contact with SM3EAE/Lars the managed to get the radio station and micro KEYER II to work and also the computer and micro KEYER II. But when they tested contest program “WinTest” they got problem. After phone contact ON4AWT/Fons they were told that they were going to use contest program “N1MM”.
During the day SM3BQC/Arne checked the area around the antenna mast and everything seemed to be ok.
