Usual rain after arrival (just before the contest)...
... So, again we shall be late with installation.
Igor (Z32ID) installed the 6m YAGI at the corner at 7 p.m.
Well, I am affraid that it is not fully horizontal. Maybe his target is VK/ZL? Anyway, SWR is above 2.0 due to the nearby fence.
Igor (Z32ID) installed the 6m antenna 15m away from the fence. SWR improved to 1:1.0
Shacks: 2m in the jeep, 6m in the tent.
Unfortunately, the rotator of west antenna did not work. Next time we need to cange it.
Finally, I could start the contest after midnight.
Igor (Z32ID) made more contacts on 6m with 100W, than I (Z38C) on 2m with kW+.
We have tested the Hybrid Ring. I connected 100W driver + PA GS35B to the 1st output. The other output drove the small PA (abt. 40W out).
1st time testing Javornik on contest.
Shack.
2 PAs. 1st was driven optimally (kW output), the other had small drive power, so output was only 40W.
Hybrid ring power splitter in operation.
Secondary utilization of the PA: drying the socks.
Rotator controllers, driver PA, RX antenna switch.
After returning to Skopje
