Finally an update

Its been a lot going on this winter. Me and a couple of friends have started a company that I’ve been working a bit in so I have had less time to spend on the radio projects. The QBL project is at an stand still because of lack of motivation which is partly because the labs at work are a big mess now since they are re-building the whole house so everything is temporary and a big mess.

However some progress is being made and I am planning and starting to work a bit on the summer projects. The house need to be finished outdoor, so that is the higher priority this spring as soon as we get > +5C degrees we can paint the boards and get that work done.

Plans for 2015
    * Repair top 6el for 20m in the 6/6/6el stack
    * Put up 28m tower for inband, need to be rebuilt and made rotatable
    * Put up 5el monobanders on 10, 15 and 20m. 2el fullsize for 40m.
    * Put up vertical for 80m+160m for inband
    * Put up HI-Z 4-SQ RX array (donated by SA0AZT)
    * Maybe prepare for moving the 80m 4-SQ in 2016

So lots of stuff to be done but hopefully we get good weather this summer as well!

Russian DX was also worked and it was an success,

Fun as usual. I believe we did a better effort than last year, however
propagations were not as good and 10m was a real challenge to get the QSOs and
mults, mostly worked on side scatter. Also last year we had pretty even QSO
numbers between SSB and CW, maybe we should have done a bit more SSB this year
to keep rate up. We are quite pleased with the outcome and we will see who else
in EU have been M/S to see if we can place top 3 this year again. Wish more
teams joined the fun with the scoreboard.
