Travel to contest position. Installation of RX antennas, installation of coax to TX antennas. About 400 meters of coaxes to unroll. Equipment unloading and installation. I hope to have by the end of the day:
320 meter long BV to EU/NA - 320 degrees, switch. to opposite direction for VK and NA LP.
167 meter long BV to AF - 240 degrees, switch. to opposite direction for JA and KH6.
240 meter long BV to NA - 0 degrees dedicated to NA SP.
I will start calling CQ on 80 meters CW about 1200Z looking for NA LP. If you are from states KS, LA, ND, NE, WY please drop me a note and we will set up a sked. About 16Z I will QSY to 160 and stay there till 2300Z. Than I qsy to 80 meters CW for NA. I have some skeds set and I plan to be around 3,510-3,520 MHz. I will opearate till my sunrise.
My TX setup:
160-Half Square @ 45 m
160-Vertical Quad with passive reflector screen from commercial antenna @ 45 m
80-BiSquare North-South @ 55 m
80-BiSquare West-East @ 55 m
Some changes to antennas if required. Installation of K9AY RX loop (4 directions). 1200Z start on 80 m CW for NA LP. Again QSY to 160 m at 16Z till 2230. 2230-2350 CQ NA 3,510-3,520 MHz.
During CQ WW CW I will be SOSB 160 meters. My sunrise time I plan to call CQ instead of S@P which I normaly do. Reason for that that in the past contests I was not able to break pile ups for NA/SA stations through EU and NA callers. I have much better condition for receive here as I do not have such a high QRN/QRM floor and I can hear all stations quite well. My antennas resonate 1,810-1,840 with SWR below 2 so don't expect me to be above 1,840 too often. As skeds are not permitted for contests please ask for skeds only within my timetable outside contest.
0000-0030Z CQ on 160 for NA. No specific freq. 0030Z I will instantly QSY 80 meters CW for NA. 3,510-3,520 MHz. I will opearate till my sunrise. Than everything will be packed and next activity will be done on January 2008.
November 22-26, 2007. Operation plan.
