Ham radio exhibition April 28 - 29, 2012 in Umeå

APRIL 28 – 29, 2012

This year SSA´s annual meeting was in Umeå, not so far from SI9AM. It is about 250 Swedish kilometer from Utaende to Umeå. It was SK2AT, The Association of Radio Amateurs in Umeå (FURA) who had arranged the ham event.

In our exhibition stand we had a computer and showed a slide show with informations about SI9AM and photos from all the things we have done when we have built up SI9AM and photos från some of our visitors.

We also had the opportunity to answer a lot of questions about our visiting Amateur Radio Station. It was questions about the radio equipment and the antennas. Some wanted to know what other things you can do in the surrondings of Utanede.

Two of the prices in a lottery that was arranged by SK2AT, was a free day at SI9AM for two persons with a overnight.
We don´t know who the lucky winners are, but we say welcome to us.

It was the vicepresident SM3FJF/Jörgen and the treasurer SM3LIV/Ulla which  were in the exhibition stand this weekend.

2012-01-25 -- 2012-01-30

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.

More work at SI9AM January 15 and 22, 2012

SM3EAE/Lars went to Utanede and continued during two Sundays the installation of the newly purchased "micro Keyer II" to get it to work with log program WinTest.

Lars got via phone, helped by SM5AJV/Ingemar. Ingemar gave Lars the right parameter sets in micro Keyer II. After much reading in the manuals, Lars finally had it to work, so now the voice of memory is ready to be used by the three hams from Belgium.

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.
