Bjørn Hugo Ark, about 50 yrs old, a earlier a DX'er with good skills from Norway, he is living in Vestre-Toten kommune(county), in a town called Reinsvoll, located in western part of the area Oppland, South Eastern Norway.

He is QRV from Nepal within a mission for U.N. and he have been QRV from Nepal since November 2002 to 10th of February, and he have been home for two weeks. He have now returned and he is now QRV from Nepal for long time, no time schedule is established yet.

There will not be any QSL request before he is at home, and he have requested some QSL when he was at home this 2 weeks.

I will just help him to collect the QSL cards!

In Nepal he have to pay a licnence for each band/Mhz, therefore this operation is not cheap.

He is working with 100w and dipole and trap-dipole antennas.

So take it easy! No jamming!


He has been QRV 80 40 30 20 meter.

He have now access to 160m and 80 m too:)

We will annouce this on this page if I'm getting it when he plans to work!
