They enjoy the sunny and warm weather. Also space weather did not disappoint - they saw the Northern Lights above the lake. Rene did more than 3000 CW QSO as OH73ELK and plans to take part in Scandinavian Activity Contest as OG7Z
During the last QSO with him from Antarctica, he said that he missed the trees :) Now they are enough! Sebastian (Seba) SQ1SGB who often works from Antarctica visited ELK cottage with his brother for a week.
Our guest Bruno F4JIK spontaneously decided to take part in the IARU HF World Championship 2023 from ELK Shack. The conditions were not easy due to the thunderstorm. But still: Bruno managed 622 QSO on 20/15/10 with our Yagi.
TNX to Ric DL2VFR we have one more Kelemen antenna now. For 40/20 - as additional antenna for these important bands. The SWR immediately settled in the center of both bands at 1.05-1.1, no adjustment was required. The picture shows an updated general plan of ELK antennas.
For the first time in his life Michael saw a FROZEN LAKE, went out on the ICE, experienced FINNISH SAUNA and Finnish KICKSLEDDING. He will work on 20/15/10m SSB 14.02-19.02. This is a good time for ELK AWARD ;-)
