OK/ST-040 HF all band activation


#1

Hi,
today I have activated OK/ST-040 with the goal
to work on all HF bands. The setup was KX3 with
the magnetic loop antenna ( 40 to 10m ) and LW
52m ( 160 and 80m ). I managed to work total of 77 QSO’s
160m : 22 QSO’s
80m : 10 QSO’s
40m : 23 QSO’s
30m : 6 QSO’s
20m : 11 QSO’s
17m : 2 QSO’s
15m : 1 QSO
12m : 1 QSO
10m : 1 QSO
The conditions on higher bands were good, but no chasers
there, though the RBN reports were good.
G4SSH made it 4 time to my log - thanks Roy. Many others
3 times. 160m setup performs well to my surprise, I hope to
stay longer on the summit to work more contacts,
but the darkness and cold makes it rather difficult.
In the future I intend to be QRV on all bands during my activations.
Thanks to everybody who called and CU from the next summit.

Congratulations Dan on 22 QSO’s on Top Band, that is a superb total.

I was hoping to be home from work in time you listen for you on 160m but you were already QRV while I was still stuck in the office.

I loom forward to your next 160m activation.

Thanks & best 73,

Thanks Mark,
the next chance is today 12th Jan. I will be QRV from OK/US-027.
I will be QRV on all bands before reasonable propagation on 160m
starts. Check the SPOTS of RBN or I will spot myself if there is
internet acess from the summit. The expected time for 160m activity
is from 15 UTC and I will try to stay as long as possible if weather
allows.

CU on TOP band from SOTA
