WCW2016 – World Castles Weekend in Uzice, Serbia

Skraćena veza: 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. […]

Topot kopita,
tandrkanje zaprega,
zveket mačeva i oklopa,
rzanje, mukanje i bleku,
jeku nakovnja,
stenjanje u tamnici,
puceketanje vatri,
napev i guslanje,
glasan smeh,
prasak kremenjače,
pojanje i zvonjavu
zameniše tišina,
huk vetra i
topot kiše.

WCW2014 – World Castles Weekend in Uzice, Serbia

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). […]
