Helvetia International Contest 2020

HB9MM (op. HB9DUR) Guest for Helvetia International

During the coming weekend 25. – 26. April 2020 the International Helvetia Contest will take place. I would like to remind all operators that it is a World wide contest, so any-to-any QSO are valid.

Helvetia Contest link

Starts: 13:00 UTC Saturday
Ends: 12:59 UTC Sunday

At the moment many countries forbid Multi-operators entries, so be careful to pay attention that at the moment the Single op category allow a maximum on 18hrs of operations

I will be guest op at HB9MM in west Switzerland in Canton VD

HB9MM in JN36HP

One of the way to increase activity, could be that all interested to join the UA1DZ Memorial Cup on Sunday, April 29, 2018, 13:00 UTC until 18:59 UTC (6 hours) right after the end of Helvetia and to extend participation in the UA1DZ Cup and guys interested in the UA1DZ contest

I suggest the two organizators to get in touch and discuss some sort of future partnership between them!

I will send my online results to http://scoredistributor.net/ to feed both online scoreboard

I am grateful to the Radio Amateurs Vaudois (RAV) for this opportunity

A must read during the COVID-19 restrictions is the interesting Insight of the contest manager HB9CZV Dominik on the 2019 Edition -> here <-

See you in the air!

Putting EX0DX on air again and some extra “work”…

EX0DX 27DEC19 till 12JAN20
ARUKR applying to IARU R1
Amazing CUBESAT woman-project

28DEC2018 UPDATE

#EX0DX CW and SSB (if any) activity is visible here https://clublog.org/livestream/ex0dx live when I a QRV



Topic #1 Holidays season is approaching and I am planning another trip to #Kyrgyzstan. I will operate EX0DX occasionally still from the very noisy QTH . However the focus is to spend my time with the family so my operation time will be randomly adjusted.

Anyway, this time I have some interesting pieces of equipment that will surely help me to get you guys our of the S9+ QRM

The nanoVNA and the SDR Play RSP 2 will help more as monitor devices

I plan to be QRV sometimes after 27th December 2019 as I have to erect the R8 Vertical antenna in the garden firstly. End of operations 11JAN2020

Temperatures are slightly below 0C which is OK. https://www.timeanddate.com/weather/kyrgyzstan/bishkek/ext

RIG will be the usual Yaesu FT450D with 100W and the Cushcrap R8 + dipole 40m. In June 2019 I tried a bazooka antenna with the hope of reducing the noise level but results were very unsatisfactory. I will look into the matter one more time.

I’m looking forward to some good QSO in spite of the inexistent Sun activity as of today 22DEC2019

WHY extra work? Topic #2

I have been appointed by the National Amateur Radio Union of the Kyrgyz Republic ARUKR as IARU R1 liason officer. We are in the process of finalising all documents for the application to fill the existing gap as Kyrgyzstan is not an IARU R1 member.

Topic #3

There is an awesome project currently running in the country related to a group of Girls building the first CUBESAT satellite ever as the Kyrgyz Space Program is crowdfunding the country’s first satellite. Info from TEDed blog and here . By the way they are searching for funds and I eager to learn more details about their project.

So family has PRIO 1 and the rest of the time won’t be boring
