Work with the Antennas,
August 27, September 10, 11 and 18, 2010


Friday, August 27, SM3FJF/Jörgen picked up SM3BQC/Arne and together they went to SI9AM and started the preparations for the Antenna work. SM3BQC/Arne cleared up the area around the antenna mast.

Friday, September 10, SM3UQO/Björn, SM3BQC/Arne and SM3FJF/Jörgen went to SI9AM prepare for the work with the 4 elements beam for 20 meters, donated by ON6UQ/Marcel and ON4ACA/Jef via their ham radio club in Belgium.

During the day they mounted the four element mono-band beam. The first QSO on the beam was with RL3QK, although the beam was only two meters above the ground. The work with the antennas took the whole day. When it became dark outside you could here SI9AM calling CQ and suddenly SM3UQU/Björn was in big pile-up.

On Saturday morning SM3EXM/Erik arrived and also SM3ZET/Urban who brought a sky lift. The work started immediately. First they had to dismount the beam because it was the only chance to get it 11 meters up with the Skylift.  It was a hard work which took the whole Saturday from early morning until late evening. There was no time to make any CQ from SI9AM this day.

Saturday, September 18, now they could finish the antenna work. SM3BQC/Arne and SM3FJF/Jörgen mounted back dipole antennas for 30, 80 and 160 meters. Now they could use all antennae and work the SAC CW Contest, which started at 12:00 UTZ
