Trip to LY
Home Up


I went to Vilnius, Lithuania in Sep 1999. Due to lack of time I just visited the LY2WR radioclub, which is located on the TV tower 170m a.g.l. They are using FT-736, 2xGU74b and 11el LY for 144MHz; GS35b and 24el LY for 70cm; 10W and 23el Loop for 23cm. They are also QRV on HF but VHF/UHF is priority nr. 1. You could find Remi, LY2MW and Rytis, LY2BIL very active on 2m MS.

10 minutes of operation on 2m band have brought me 4 QSOs. 

You can find more information about HAM activity in LY on web pages and
