Now our guests CW Lovers can taste the new paddle. This special "ELK-edition" is produced for us by RA1AOM in St.Petersburg. He used 50 hours for this work. Everything is made of stainless steel and polished by hand. The base is made of jasper.
For more comfort during prolonged Pile-Ups in OH73ELK Shack in addition to the standard Icom microphone we have now the new desktop mic SM 30! With this microphone we have got an excellent modulation quality!
A nice surprise from our Ham Guests DG1FN Peter and DF1PY Stephan. Working for a week from OH73ELK Shack, they fulfilled the conditions of an unusual diploma - "Ahr-Rotwein Diplom"! This is the First German Award of our young station! We will celebrate this event with an attached bottle of wine: "Ahr-Rotwein"!
