What is this?
Amateur radio, contesting and team building, sounds familiar?
If not, take a tour at our site and find out more about this hobby that
combines it all.
Today we all have cell phones using radio waves to transport
information from one subscriber to another. Amateurs around the world communicate
with others on designated bands. Instead of dialing a specific number we
just call "CQ", seek you, and anyone that hears that call can
answer. Imagine that a person on the other side of the globe answer your
call and wants to talk to you!
As in all sports you can compare skills and stations by
competitions. Every year there are a number of contests that are held
through out the world. Some of the big contests are CQWW, WPX, IARU. In general contests have one main objective. By
having as many contacts with other amateurs in different countries a
score can be made. So therefore different contest classes are kept. For
instance a normal amateur would participate in a low power class and club
perhaps have many operators that could build up a team and run several
radios at the same time from the same location, so called multi operator
category. Of course there are a number of categories that I dont mention here but could be found at
Located some 150km. northwest from Stockholm a group of devoted radio amateurs
have built this impressive station, mostly for contest purposes. Starting
back in mid -90's when the first crank-up tower was installed we now have
mono band Yagis on all bands and four
square antennas for the low bands.
The building and maintenance is all done during freetime
by a number skilled persons. So next time you
hear us calling please call in and give us a report.
For those who want a QSL card please send it via the buro. We try to send out cards twice a year. Latest logs are also available on eQsl and ARRL Log Book of the World.
