WCW2014 – World Castles Weekend in Uzice, Serbia

Скраћена веза: https://pedja.supurovic.net/veza/7592

It was just several days before this year world Castle Weekend that I decided to participate by activating one of the fortresses in surroundings of my hometown Užice. Actually, I was targeted to activate YU-0030, Fortress of Solotnik, as it was never activated before and thus should be more interesting for WCA hunters.


As I still did not have all necessary equipment and tools I asked for a help of Milan YU1ZZ. As experienced contester he was up to the task, ready to improvise if necessary. One short phone call settled it down. Milan is primarily high class contester and DXer, but it seemed to me that he is actually seeking for something fresh and more relaxing, and he was really interested in my previous activation of Old fortress in Uzice (YU-00023). […]

W6CCP – The King of Impoliteness

Today just past 17:00 UTC at 14214 kHz I witnessed behavior of  ham radio operator W6CCP that was as rude as it could get.

Saddiq A41KJ was on the frequency calling CQ, and had big pile-up from European stations. He was called all over but handling situation nicely and getting through the list of stations calling him.

Then, out from nowhere, W6CCP came out, obviously with very high power, screaming on top of all other callers for Saddiq to turn to long pass to North America. He was so powerful that he out-called all stations in pile-up. He gave fine report for A41KJ but insisted for him to turn to long pass. […]

Remote Controlled Antenna Switch

As I live in apartment building I have apparent problem with setting up ham radio antenna. The obvious place to set up antenna was the roof as it  is easily accessible. Due to small space and me not wanting to make mess of a wires, I decided to use compromise vertical multiband. A friend had spare DunaX-GPN4B (40, 20, 15 and 10m) so it was obvious choice. I had to put down about 30m of coax cable to my apartment, and soon I was in the air.

Not for long I found out that I do miss 80 meter band a lot. […]

Колико снаге емитујете?

Скраћена веза: https://pedja.supurovic.net/veza/7483

Непресушна тема у радио-аматерским разговорима је снага радио-станица. Ма колико да је имамо, то никада није довољно. Увек су на цени јаче радио-станице, а многи радио-аматери не сматрају своју опрему заокруженом ако не набаве неки појачавач снаге.

Интересантно је да је први корак у повећању домета обично повећање снаге предајника. Нажалост то уме да оде и дотле да се излази из оквира прописа и емитује снагама које су далеко веће него што је то дозвољено, а да резултати не буду баш одговарајући.

Многи су се уверили да просто повећање снаге не да није увек него често уопште и није решење. […]
