EX/HB9DUR qrv on HF from Kyrgyzstan

Hi all,

This afternoon I have had an invitation to operate from George, EX8MAT shack just outside the city center for what is my first ham radio activity from Kyrgyzstan.

I made approx 340q on 15m in 2 hrs time and a dozen of qso on 20m, but condx were not optimal on 20..
Due to lack of time I ended after 14 UTC.

Due to excess baggage I haven’t brought any own rtx nor antenna with me. So it a a casual operation from local ham shacks.

Hope to be able to be qrv again and possibly on other bands. I will stay until 06 Jan 2014.

73, Andrea EX/HB9DUR

HB9CAT Onsite Referees for WRTC2014


Windham, NH

Onsite Referees for WRTC2014 Announced

WRTC2014, Inc., host of the 2014 World Radiosport Team Championship (WRTC),
is pleased to announce the fifty-nine referees that will be monitoring the
competing teams during the competition July 12-13, 2014.

A referee will be on site at each of the 59 competing stations to verify
compliance with the rules and make decisions on any rule questions by the
teams. The referees must be top-level contesters because they must
simultaneously listen to the audio from both operators for the entire 24
hours of the WRTC2014 competition.

The referee application and verification process was managed by Dan Street,
K1TO. There were 143 applications received. The selection process considered
many factors, including geographical areas, language skills and SO2R

Dave Sumner, K1ZZ, Chief Judge for WRTC2014, had this comment regarding the
selections, “With so many well qualified volunteers willing to serve as
referees it was simply impossible to choose everyone we would have liked. It
is a great tribute to the past and present WRTC organizers that the event is
so strongly supported by active contesters from around the globe. We know
that everyone who volunteered will help in any way they can to make WRTC
2014 another success.”
