DXpedition blog via HB9AK

ON4GS and ON4CO are on a DXpedition to St. Kilda Island (EU-059). They are updating their blog automatically with e-mails sent via the WINLINK system. A nice application! They are just using a FT-817 (5W) and a PTC-II modem.

HB9AK now with 580 Ah battery backup

HB9AK has got power backup with 4 12V lead-acid batteries of 145 Ah each. The new energy laws of Switzerland will lead to a very unreliable and intermittent electric power supply. We hope that this battery backup will help to counter power downs when sun is not shining and wind is not blowing...

The new 10m RMS HB9AK-1 is now operational on Hoernli mountain (JN47LI, 1130m asl). It provides PACTOR1-4 and WINMOR operation. It is expected to cover large parts of Switzerland as well as neighbouring regions of France, Germany and Austria.
