HA1CA/Zoli & HA6PX/Csaba worked as Z38C from Mt. Peren (1326m ASL) - locator KN12AG
Unfortunately, Dime and Igor could not join to the team, as:
- Dime broke his foot 1 week before :-(
- Igor was ordered to work by his employer on the weekend :-(
T-Mobile MK Install Team installed the 4x6 el. YAGI group and its cabling on the side of T-Mobile tower on Thursday (Many thanks for them for the great help.). The YAGI group was installed on fix direction: 335°.
Zoli & Csaba installed the rotated YAGI (12 el. Cue Dee) and the equipment on Saturday. we put the station in the Ford Transit.
We were not able to finish the work until the start of the contest so we missed the first 30 minutes.
We planned to use 2 x kW PAs, but due to a technical failure, we could use only 1 x kW PA.
Due to 1 x kW PA system, we planned to use the rotated YAGI only, (but left the fix YAGi for RX side for testing the 2 antenna systems). As propagation went down, we decided to dismantle the fix YAGI on Sunday at around 12:00, and noticed that we mixed the cables:
- received on rotated YAGI, but
- all the time transmitted on fix YAGI group !
All in all, it was a great fun.
Since the Z38C licence is valid until 2018, will have opportunity to work again!
Extra: We heard 1 x DL (and worked with him) and 1 x ON station via sporadic propagation.
Average distance: 427km
