was much hampered by a high noise level at both locations particularly
on low-bands, a team led by Pertti, OG2M, Miro, OM5RW and Rudy, OM3PC
and Driton, Z61DX has put all its effort into hoisting full size verticals
for this weekend from a quiet location beyond the city noise. Beverages
have been built for the U.S and Japan. They are using a local cell site
tower as their supporting structure.
The trio will have two signals on the air throughout the next three
(3) nights, on 160, 80, 40 and 30M. In addition, they will still penetrate
the 20M openings above 14025 KHz for U.S. Advanced and Generals.
Last night they were able to reach the U.S on 160M and even the West
Coast on 80M with only 100 watts thanks to N6TQ and others. Tonight they
will have full power.
Early this week also marked another happy occasion as six (6) more
Kosovar youth took their exams for amateur radio license.
On Tuesday next week the group at Z60A will start taking apart their
two sites, while the towers and beams will soon be QRV with the locals.
