Contact with R34P in WRTC2010

Tagged:

Audio is edited from R34P recordings. Photos taken during event on my side. It was 15m and I used our small 1/4 wave trapped vertical for 20–15–10m from ECO. R34P was weak by me, same as me in Russia. I had not only such inteference from other nearby stations.. Russia direction covered by near wall of big trees, signal had bounce somewhere..

QRZ.COM Bookmarklet

Tagged:

Probably everybody of us search sometime callsign on qrz.com. For me it is: 1. select callsign, 2. copy to clipboard, 3. open new panel, 4. open qrz.com page and 5. paste callsign to search box and 6. search for it. Quite many steps, especially if you repeat it more than once..

Contact with Alaska

All this started in November, 2009. I tweeted link with map of USA where I mark confirmed states via LoTW. You know, I am not focused on collecting awards, but after some months, I was curious where my signal reach the USA and WAS data from LoTW was nice opportunity mark it onto map. After hearing names of US states many times before from TV and Radio, that was also great opportunity learn where they are exactly on the map.

Official list of issued hamradio callsigns in Czech republic

Sometimes is fine check callsign, if really does exist. In Czech republic is available search on website of Czech telecomunication office, who care about our hamradio licenses. So, you will get most official results from there. But, in Czech republic does exist law for protect personal data, so this search returns only ID number of license and license expiration date (No names, no addresses)

Accidentally, I found Ama magazine issued August 1998, where is on frontpage my father OK2BX and me as OK2BXT. We were near village Pavlov and participated in VHF field day on 144MHz. I remember we used Icom IC751 with transverter. During contest visited us Vojta OK2ZU who has QTH nearby and Karel OK2FD. He took this photo..

QSL Card OK2BX 1949 is back

Tagged:

This QSL Card sent my grandfather Bohuslav OK2BX for CW radio contact on 28MHz to station W6FHW on 11th March 1949. I luckily found it, during searching other old stuff, on ebay and got it back on 11th January 2010. This is really most valuable QSL card at home for me and for my father either! I am glad my grandpa did not use printed stickers and we can now enjoy his handwritting. Btw, he designed this QSL card on his own.

Old times, hamradio and me

Tagged:

Unfortunatelly, I had not luck meet my grandfather Bohuslav OK2BX personally. He passed away too early. He was quite known person in begin of hamradio in Czechoslovakia, I think. These days still happen to me that older hams remember to my grandfather, when I tell my name.

Winkeyer

Tagged:

I ocasionally experienced that direct keying from writelog over FTDI USB interface has “hiccup”. In this case I must interupt transmitting and send macro again. I ordered Winkeyer2 kit serial version from Steve K1EL.
