First call to Kiiskilanmaki OH/JS-016


#1

During 15-22 July 2014 will be arranged Youngsters on the Air radio camp (http://www.ham-yota.eu/) in Virrat in Finland.

Finnish SOTAmates have arranged possibility to keep one summit during the Camp. Summit day is Friday 18.7.2014 and place is OH/JS-016 - Kiiskilanmaki. Time period is about 12.00-15.00 UTC.

Number of operators is 20-30, may be more (depends on logistical issues). Operators are using call OH/”Own Call”/p if they are having CEPT compatible license, other they are operating under supervision with OG2H/p call. More detail information about calls will be put into SOTA pages online.

We hope that possible many chasers would be active with these youngsters for giving them first touch to SOTA and getting some of them and/or all of them as chasers/activators in the future.

Put this date and time in to your calendar!

73, Saku OH2NOS

Second call to Kiiskilanmaki

From Kiiskilanmaki will be operated with two calls OG3X/p (supervised by Tony OH3T) and OG2H/p (supervised by Saku OH2NOS) in the cases when youngster does not have full license. Jaakko OH6FQI has made reference table which helps us to apply Cept requirements.

OG3X/p will operate on ssb mainly with 100W and OG2H/p on cw with 5 or 10 W (two options). If needed is also possible to operate OG3X on cw. We are going to make short antenna tests roughly minus one hour before show time for checking propagation to directions EU, NA and VK. This will be informed on SOTA-web separately.

Kiiskilanmaki SOTA-Team consists of Hannu OH3KW, Pekka OH3GDO, Tony and Saku. After the event we are willing to get feedback. All pros and cons are warmly welcomed!

In reply to OH2NOS:

It is showtime!

We are expecting one full busload (!!) of YOTA campers to the summit.
That translates to 40-50 operators from several countries participating, so
please forgive us the many spots to the cluster today with different calls.

Depending on intra-station QRM we will have 2-3 stations QRV from
OH/JS-016 between 1200-1500UTC.

Main focus on 20m and 30m bands with wire beams on all bands between 10 and 30 meters. The usual SOTA QRGs. OG3X/p runs 100W KX3 + small amplifier (main focus on SSB, but CW as an option). OG2H/p runs 5-10w CW (with 50 watt option with another small amp). Having said that, we expect the YOTA campers to work with their own CEPT licenses with OH/homecalls, so listen carefully and follow the cluster.

Please do not hesitate to work every call from the summit, even on multiple bands and modes if possible. I will donate a nice set of Finnish Arabia coffee mugs to the top three operators with most band-mode-slots to OH/JS-016 today. Six cups for the first and three cups for the second and third. In order to make my life easier please send the claimed scores to my email mycall@sral.fi (you can find my email address also from qrz.com). I will cross check your scores with sotadata, so you must upload the calls within 24 hours after the event (deadline is Saturday tomorrow 1500UTC!!). Those failing to upload the data are not eligible to receive the coffee mug donation :slight_smile:

Further, between everyone giving us a call (excluding those top three) we will draw six coffee mugs.

Please follow this thread!

Finally, lets behave on the bands, have fun, and make this an excellent demonstration of SOTA and HAM spirit!

Yours,

Toni oh3t

In reply to OH2NOS:

Hello Saku,

I spoke with 8 YOTA today on 18.130 before the band went elsewhere for me. 20 was flat here until 1500.

All very slick operators 8)

Best wishes
Mike

In reply to G6TUH:

Hello Saku,

Just done my log - x15 YOTA’s. I heard Ricky MW6GWR under OG3X but when I called the op’ had changed! I know everyone has to have a chance to operate but perhaps 4 minute slots or so! Static has died away - I suspect heading north so hopefully the weekend should be good…?

Best wishes
Mike

Hi all,

I joined the Kiiskilänmäki operation yesterday by bike from Jyväskylä, just to see if my help would be needed. But the guys had it all very well organized, and the enthusiastic young hams seemed to be having great fun on the hill.

So thank you OH3T, OH2NOS and all the others who made this possible. Hopefully we’ll hear many of those young hams activating and chasing summits in the future.

73,
Jaakko, OH6FQI

In reply to OH2NOS:

Because I have temporary uploading problems, I present Kiiskilanmaki pre cw-log here. I ask participants check if I have copied your calls correct from log book. Especially I am unsure with call W90A/9 (“/” can be “1”).

If there is errors, please send correction to my email OH2NOS(at)sral.fi

Listening to the activity report of Youngsters on the Air 2014 the SOTA activity was very much appreciated by the participants.
Nice to have met Saku during my activation of OH/JS-066 while on my way to the airport.

In reply to OH2NOS:

SSB logs attached. Sorry about the small delay for processing this… had to spend one afternoon salvaging ham radio gear from an escaped trailer

and then had to do some antenna work and tower climbing

I think we have a clear winner for the coffee mug copetition G6TUH congrats.
I will make a separate post on the coffee mug including winners of the lucky draw :slight_smile:

Cheers,

In reply to OH3T:

After log cross checking with Saku I am happy to announce the
winners of the coffee mug challenge. As always there is a protest period
of two days if we have completely missed some calls in our combined logs.

Tadaa…

We want to thank the all stations for their outstanding efforts and support during Yota 2014 SOTA activation of Kiiskilanmaki OH/JS-016. Several stations had more than one contact with the SOTA stations, but after the end we had very clear winner.

G6TUH 15 contacts 6 coffee mugs
DJ5AV 5 contacts 3 coffee mugs
EA2DT 4 contacts 3 coffee mugs

Finally, the lucky winners of the coffee mug draw (lady luck was OH2NOS’s XYL Kaisa over the phone), each receiving one (1) coffee mug:

DK4MD
DL8UVG
HB9ASV
IZ5IT
MW3MI
OE7PHI

Kindly, if your call was mentioned above, could you please provide me with your mailing address for sending the mugs.

Cheers,

Toni oh3t


#14

In reply to OH3T:

Thanks Toni & Saku,

I just responded to the request to support the young ops 8)

“…Please do not hesitate to work every call from the summit, even on multiple bands and modes if possible.”

The coffee mugs will be useful because a few here got broken at a recent birthday party!

Best wishes
Mike

MW3MI

…looks like a typo. Presumably (checking logs) MW3RNI ?

Congratulations, all. 73, Rick M0LEP


#16

In reply to OH3T:

Very cool operation Toni! Glad the band opened up enough that I could work one of the operators.

I just noticed that I had somehow missed uploading my chaser log for this summit. When I did, I found that it showed unconfirmed. It appears that the times in the SSB logs in this thread are in local time rather than UTC. Also, most of the activators do not appear to have uploaded logs. I was just curious if they intend to do so at some point.

Thanks,

—73 Karl KA3RCS


#17

In reply to KA3RCS:

We try to fix this. Yes, we know that the times of SSB logs are local. They need to be converted to UTC before upload.

Thanks,

Toni oh3t


#18

In reply to OH3T:

The times are not considered when checking for confirmations.
