For more comfort during prolonged Pile-Ups in OH73ELK Shack :-) In addition to the standard Icom microphone and the new desktop SM 30, there are also a lightweight Heil BM-10 headset with a pedal and we plan to purchase also HEIL PROSET IC.
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"!
OE6PGM Gerhard with family was staying at OH73ELK island for a week as First OM from Austria. He took also OE5NRF Maximilian (14) with him. Despite his age, Maxi is very deeply versed in all the technical details of our hobby and he was very active On Air. For now it is the youngest Ham Operator of our Shack!
