OZ9KY - The QTH

 

When contesting on VHF/UHF a good QTH is of the outmost importance. We have been so lucky that one of our members - OZ5KM, Kjeld - lives in the countryside, only 200 meters from the highest point in Denmark, and some 400 meters from the nearest neighbor - so OZ9KY moved in!

 

We are occupying part of the loft and have installed a home made crank-up mast just outside the operating room - the mast to the left. On this mast we mount the primary antennas. These antennas are changed almost every week as the NAC monthly contest goes from 144 MHz to 432 MHz to 50 MHz and then back again. The picture is showing our 432 MHz set up with 4 long yagi's stacked vertically.

The mast to the right is OZ5KM's permanent set-up for 144 MHz, 432 MHz and 1296 MHz. We use this as our secondary antenna system, enabling us to listen in two direction and instantly switch the transmitter between the systems.
