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!
WPX SSB 2019 was the First Contest for our Team! We are happy with this result, although now we know how we could get more QSO and points. At WPX 2020 our Station OH73ELK will be presented as follow: SSB: Rudi ON7CL & Team; CW: G4DBL Tim & Team ! We will cheer for our guests!
Our current guests Rene DL2JRM with XYL Anett DO6XX added something new to the history of OH73ELK Radio Cottage : First time in RTTY, First time on 24 MHz... and tomorrow, Anett will take part in the HSW Contest with our brand new Сall OG7Z in SSB mode. (Rene will run CW). This Contest Call will be for the First time On Air!
David, F4EPU with his family is staying at OH73ELK now. They left France just when it was 43 degrees Celsius there!!! David is On Air (mostly 20m) as OH73ELK Second Operator and he has already added some rare DXs to our general log ;-)
