OZ7VEA running the last QSOs from EU-125. This picture will also be part of my QSL card, which I'll design once I'm back in DL. Thanks to the OMs on I'm sure I'll have the cards in a month or so.

Meeting Svend - OZ1DYI

After having heard him on 20 m with a very strong signal I determined that just around the corner there is another OM QRV from Rømø. It is Svend OZ1DYI who has his summer QTH here on the Island just a couple of kilometers away. On the link at QRZ.COM you can see his QTH.

We had a very pleasant talk just in front of this house.

It is always a pleasure to meet OMs face to face and to exchange the points of views and the experience made as a HAM.

Thanks to Svend and his wife for this very nice afternoon on

QSO status

So far the following number of QSOs are achieved:
PSK   171
SSB 218
CW 242
Sum 696

OZ7VEA active some hours a day

It seems that the propagation is as worst as last year from EU-171.

Nevertheless we are active as much as possible and so far managed to make around 200 QSOs. The farest DX was JU85TTC (Mongolia) today. We've heard some JA stations as well but no contact was made.

Insight into the shack of OZ7VEA

This gives a small view on the working condition. I urgently need to build up the 20 m loop but the weather conditions currently do not allow this.

OZ7VEA is on the air

After a pleasant journey we arrived on the island during the afternoon.

The first antenna lifted up is a FD3. The trees around the house are not very high, so the antenna isn't either. Nevertheless the first QSOs were made on 20 m in PSK31 and RTTY.

Next step is to build up the loop for 20 m and start working in SSB.
