Radio Amateurs in War

Скраћена веза: https://pedja.supurovic.net/veza/8628

March 24th. Year 1999. The very end of the 20th Century. With the nightfall strange sounds were heard in the sky and at 19:45 – explosions. Bomb fell on Yugoslavia, small sovereign country in Central Europe.

One word is on everyone mind – WAR!

Yugoslavia was attacked by NATO military alliance led by United States of America, the country Yugoslav people always considered as one of the best friends. At first, people were fighting mixed feelings caused by unjustly accusations, vicious attacks and betrayal of considered friendly and ally countries and disbelieve that what happens is at all possible as that was act against international law. […]

Скраћена веза: https://pedja.supurovic.net/veza/8540

IARU REGION 1 – ПРИНЦИПИ ПЛАНИРАЊА ВХФ, УХФ И МИКРОТАЛАСНИХ ОПСЕГА

ФМ репетитори су намењени као комуникациони сервис мобилним радио/аматерским станицама (укључујући и ручне станице). По потреби, могу бити инсталирани и за побољшање доступности станица у планинским подручјима.

Они нису намењени да омогућују DX везе, стога њихов домет у уобичајеним условима пропагација треба да буде ограничен.

Број инсталираних репетиторских станица треба да буде одређен према
– потребама за регионално покривање
– очекиваном броју корисника

Не треба да буде устаљено да се ФМ репетитори употребљавају као канали за ћаскање за фиксне станице. То се коси са њиховом наменом.

WCW2016 – World Castles Weekend in Uzice, Serbia

Скраћена веза: https://pedja.supurovic.net/veza/8404

For this year World Castle Weekend I activated Old fortress in Uzice (WCA YU-00023, JN93VU, WAS ST03) using my call sign YT9TP/P. Again. Activation was not announced, as usual, and served as surprise for fellow hams chasing WCA points. I had great help from Goran YU4RAA who participated in antenna and station setup.

Weather prognosis was not ideal. It was expected to have some showers which reduced our options of station location. Instead of setting it on top of fortress which would provide high point and lot of clear space, and no protection from bad weather, we decided to go safer way and settle at only space that can be used as shelter. […]

Baofeng LiIon charger modification

My idea was to be able to use this to charge Baofeng radio in various power conditions including in my car and this voltage was a problem. I noticed comments that charger should not be connected to higher voltage than 10 Volts. So I modded charger to fit higher voltage. baofeng-charger-mod

HamClock

Скраћена веза: https://pedja.supurovic.net/veza/8292

hamclockHamClock is quite simple Android application for amateur radio operators. It’s purpose is to help hams working portable.

Operating portable usually means carrying light equipment, especially if everything has to be carried in backpack, on foot or on bicycle.

In most of my portable work I do not carry laptop with me. It is not that I do not need it, but I usually work in the open, and it is really hard to read my laptop’s display when in sunlight, and even in light shade.

Therefore I am used to carry paper log of pocket size and do logging by hand. […]

YT9TP SOTA activation Bandera (Tornik, Zlatibor) – YU/ZS-023

Скраћена веза: https://pedja.supurovic.net/veza/8176

26. July 2015. Finally, one modest temperature day came after two weeks of very hot weather in Serbia. I saw it as an opportunity to visit mountains and test slowly but steady gathered equipment for outdoors ham radio activities.

I decided to spend nice day activating highest peak of mountain Zlatibor, called Bandera, topping Tornik hill. With height of 1497 meters it dominates area and provides very nice see-sightings.

I asked Filip YT1PRO to join me. I guessed as he is quite fresh licensed operator he would be interested to see some action. And I was right. […]
