Before job: GP antenna for 3,5MHz (19.2m)high,
5el LineUp Quad Antenna for 10m.

( soee down picture , work in progres )
Next project 10el LineUp Quad for 15m band.
From February 2015.started again with SATellite operation.
Few times heard Joe K3SZH and once UA0SUN : via AO-7 sat.
Also looking for 73 at AO-73 sat award ( have 56 diferent stations worked ( 05th Mar.Completed 73 contact via AO-73 sat (12.Mar.2015 )
Working vi FO-29 , but antenna set-up is not very good for this sat.
I am very proud on my new web page ( in progres :
Worked in Gagarin Contest 2015.
Interesting is optional Sat operation like aditional band.
Worked UN9L station via AO-73 sat ( distance is 4.600km )
If someone have info about longer QSO via AO-73 sat please let me know ( every info about long-distance conntact via sat is interesting to me , so please send me to my mail
My last LONG DISTANCE QSO via satellite:
R0RQ Boris OO22AK 6000km
FO-29 sat CW 10:17GMT
temporarly sat antenna setup:
144MHz: 25W 9el Yagi-Uda F9FT preamp
432MHz: 10W dualQuad DL7KM no pream
See you via Satellite
Just completed my 1000th QSO via sat ( : Robert
W. Barbee Jr. (W4AMI) Satellite
Operator Achievement Award )
Also have some fun to try to work via CAMSAT ( bouqet off 6+3 new AMSATs: very fast small birds...
Now have some free time to impruve my Sat. setup and prepared for winter long nights
Just made ( September 2016. ) stacking cabel for 2x9el Yagi-Uda, and my friend
9A4DF Marjan,
finshed preamplifirer with MGF1302, all for 432MHz.
Much better signal reading via FO-29 sat, and better pass trough oldtimer AO-7 with only 10W.
UA0SUN Vlad and R0RQ Boris, are made via AO-7 : abt 6000km distance.
Now is time for my transatlantic QSO via Satellite...
K3SZH Joesef -few times, KB1RVT Nick, VE1SKY Roger, WB2SIH William, W2GIO Francis : are allready heard via AO-7.
See you via AMSAT.
27th.Sept. 2016:received masage from Chris NK1K that he copied my signal via AO-7 sat.
Equipment here was : tx: 432MHz TR9500 10W,horizotaly polarised 2x9el Yagi-Uda stacked with Power Divider ( made by my friend Marjan 9A4DF )
rx: 144MHz FT290R II,horizontaly polarised 9el Yagi-Uda Tona+ preamplifirer
Many thanks to KB1RVT Nick , AO-7 satellite, my new ODX 6770km , and finaly ( after several try ) transatlantic QSO is made via AMSAT.
Also in the same pass I copy K3SZH Josef nice 58, but my up signal ( 10W at 432MH ) was not enough when sat goes down near horizon ( some big trees scattered it)) But it is interesting: I can hear down signals at 144MHz.
06th Nov.2016: After put my antennas on better position for west side : made my new ODX via Satellite:thanks to KB1PVH Dave , AO-7 sat,FN42CD 6839km.
But still my opinion is that 10W output power is to small for goes more than 7000km?
Please if someone have data about ( or expirience ) let me know..!?

Many thanks to Chris, NK1K for my first FO-29 Satellite transatlantic QSO.
He wants to try his new preamlifirer in DX conditions.NEW sat DXCC for him...
Sat was about 1280 km high at the moment of QSO.

Perfect day for Sporadic E over EU: 16.June 2017.
Started with RW3TJ RW3VM RV3IG. Few minutes after OH3JG cw , ES1II/8 and pile-up OH stations: OH2FNR OH1AXT OH1AYQ OH1OP OH1ND ( thanks Juha for spotting ) OH3LWP. Than mix of YL3AG LY5G OF1XT OF3BCK OH3JR (ssb signal 59+40dB ) UA2FL cw , OF3DP OH2FQV YL2OK ( with little help of Zlatko 9A2SB )
Than strted western side: LA3EQ OZ1BUR OZ1BEF OH2LIY G4ASR LA2IMA and again OZ1BEF signal goes to ful of RIG instrument...
Sporadic was longer on,but rain started and my fully /p operation on nearby field stoped...
I worked in many sporadic E but this was never before good for 9A as I know...
Simple equipment 25W and 9el Yagi-Uda antenna + preamplifirer , gave me great pleasure...
Thanks to all station I worked and to Zlatko, 9A2SB for asistance in few QSOs..
See you in next VHF contests and activity days...
