IARU HF Championship 2014, 20m SSB & 10 CW Report

Flattr this!

This year we joined again the HB9HQ team. After an excellent meeting at HB9BF we got 20m SSB and 10m CW at HB9EE. The preparation went successfully. We used the HQ version of Wintest which was connected to the other HB9HQ stations via the tunnel software. This worked even though we had some timeouts with our UMTS internet link. LTE is planned 🙂 But since there was a nice step-by-step manual, the set-up of the software was easy. Especially it was very nice to see what the other stations do and have a bit of an idea how it is going.

Thanks to the guest operators for support and especially thanks to all of them who helped installing the antennas.
Operators: HB9ELV, HB9EMP, HB9CVQ, HB9DUR, HB9FGO, HB9EFK , DL1II

The antennas were:
20m SSB: 5 over 5, OB 9-5DSC01271
10m CW: 7 El. US,3 el. SA, 4 el. US, Dipole 2x42m

The final result of HB9EE is:
1565 QSO’s on 20m SSB and 585 QSO’s on 10m CW and plenty of multipliers.
Infact the goal were 2000 QSO’s on 20m which we did not reach but we try to improve next year. On 10m predictions are always hard 😉
We don’t know the overall result yet.

THANKS TO THE WHOLE TEAM AND FOR SURE WE IMPROVED THE 10MIO. RESULT OF LAST YEAR!
