IARU Region 1 VHF Contest

DL0GTH participated the contest from Schneekopf in JO50JP on 4th/5th September with much smaller than usual equipment. Nevertheless, the results achieved were much better than anticipated with such reduced equipment: 1086 QSO and >410000 points. Looking forward now to the October UHF/SHF/Microwave Contest.

July VHF/UHF/SHF Contest

Even, I participated a few hours only, I am quite satisfied with the results. No skeds, no airplane scatter software use.
144 MHz: 101 QSO, ODX IQ5NN 823 km
432 MHz: 20 QSO, ODX OM6A 583 km
1296 MHz: 10 QSO, ODX DG2GR 192 km
Now, I am looking forward to September IARU-Region 1 VHF Contest. DL0GTH will be QRV again from JO50JP in multi OP mode.

Returning to normal life

Fortunately, new Covid-19 infections went down significantly, shops and restaurants are open again and I am looking forward for some ham radio events. I also got my second shot of vaccine and feel much more safe now. Likely, I will participate July VHF/UHF contest in Single OP category still. But I am confident that DL0GTH will operate as Multi OP station in IARU-Region-1-VHF contest. CU on the air.

May VHF/UHF Contest from Home

Since multi operator contesting is still restricted by Corona pandemic rules, DL0GTH was not active and I made some QSO on 2m, 70cm and 23cm bands from home. A few hours only, also because there was not much activity and poor condx. The contest weekends are almost the only chance for some QSO in SSB/CW because outside of contests there is more activity in digital modes.

Hello friends!

I am currently more active on amateur radio bands than usual caused by the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions which limit other interests. Stay healthy and active on the amateur radio bands.
