Im still QRT ...Amateur Radio

Posted by Mikael Thu, December 27, 2018 13:48:12

Unfortunately, I'm still QRT due to financial and technical problems. I am working on trying to become QRV again in the beginning of next year (hopefully already in January). It feels sad not to be active during the Christmas and New Year holidays, but hopefully my signals will be heard again in the air in the near future.

I will continuously update my website www.sm0lpo.se with statistics, new qsl cards, new diplomas etc. even though I am currently QRT.

I wish you all a happy new year smiley

Today, several envelopes containing qsl cards came in the mail. It is always fun to open the envelopes with qsl cards - a bit like opening presents.

Thank you for your contributions to my qsl collection.

OK OM DX ContestRadio contest

Posted by Mikael Mon, November 12, 2018 09:59:36

The weekend of 10-11 November it was time to attend the annual OK OM DX Contest. This year I participated in the class SO QRP ALL and it was a big challenge. The challenge this year was that the conditions were extremely bad in combination with QSB. In the end I managed to get 101 stations in the log, which I'm also happy with. The result was not as good as I had hoped.

One other thing and it is that the log application I use (N1MM +) gives each contact 10 points, despite the fact that the contest rules state that each contact gives only 1 point. So instead of my final result according to N1MM + was 94 940 points, my preliminary score is 9 494 points.

Despite the tough challenge this year, I thank all of you who ended up in my log for a nice race weekend this time and see you again next year.

Ukrainian DX ContestRadio contest

Last weekend it was time for Ukrainian DX Contest and I participated in the SO Low Power CW class. I was supposed to participate with QRP, but when there are so bad conditions, I could not get through QRM with my QRP power.

After a fun weekend (even though I had to change my participation from QRP to Low) I received a total of 341 QSOs in the log with a preliminary raw score of 190 638 (see picture below).

Thank you for all the contacts and hope work your station soon again.
