HB9AK: Emcomm tests by OH8STN

Julian/OH8STN has performed Emcomm tests with QRP equipment (5W PEP) between Finnland and HB9AK (> 2000 km). As antennas he was using either a shortened dipole or a mag loop, both on a tripod. He tested in WINMOR mode on 20m and documented it in this video: http://oh8stn.org/blog/2017/08/29/winlink-qrp-compromise-antenna/
The test shows that HB9AK can be helpful for emergency communication should no internet be available in northern Europe (or other parts of Europe).

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.
