HB9AK: new 20m QRG avoids frequent QRM

As the established 20m QRG of HB9AK seems to be in use quite often by other stations, HB9AK is now scanning a 2nd frequency in the 20m band. The new frequency (14'115.0 dial) seems to be less occupied. Response time to 20m connects will therefore be a little bit longer. If the new QRG proves to be better, the old QRG will not be serviced anymore by beginning of August.

DXpedition blog via HB9AK

ON4GS and ON4CO are on a DXpedition to St. Kilda Island (EU-059). They are updating their blog automatically with e-mails sent via the WINLINK system. A nice application! They are just using a FT-817 (5W) and a PTC-II modem.

HB9AK now with 580 Ah battery backup

HB9AK has got power backup with 4 12V lead-acid batteries of 145 Ah each. The new energy laws of Switzerland will lead to a very unreliable and intermittent electric power supply. We hope that this battery backup will help to counter power downs when sun is not shining and wind is not blowing...
