As you may already know, the HA5KKC team has organized a DXpedition to Pasman Island.
iota-small     EU-170

The island is located in the Croatian Adriatic sea, accessible by car-ferry, have some 3000 inhabitant and there are marvelous little villages on it.  We had our QTH in Mali Pasman.

1st of all I need to send a big thanks and 73 to our host 9A2ZD   Branko.

Without his great hospitality and kindness the DXpedition would not be possible.
We were living in his house, have used his antennas on HF bands especially on 80 meters and enjoyed the mediterran enviroment in his garden.
The DXpedition’s main goal was to take a part on the 34th   HA-QRP CONTEST  but we could find time for other things too.

The HA-QRP CONTEST is another story, I wanna let you know my VHF Meteorscatter FSK441 Experiences.

I have used the next setup:

  • Yaesu FT-897 TCVR

  • Home made power amplifier with 1x GI-7b ~300W output power Worked flawlessly

  • Tonna F9FT 9ele. antenna I will take with me a bigger one next time !

  • Fujitsu-Siemens notebook with K1JT’s WSJT

        software.Took the job
  • 9A/HA5LV 's operating "site" and the "tower" with antenna
    site   kocsi
    qsl
    I had very bad takeoff from 200° to 340°, this segment was covered by the ~ 150m high mountain I standing on.
    The antenna is at ~ 40m ASL.
    There were no way – even a small path - to carry the station to the peak. Next time I have to find a better VHF QTH.

    The other disadvantage was the lack of Internet connection. I could not see any DX-

    cluster or the KST chat, had no meteor-radar info and could not use the blog what was

    kindly presented by the MMM team. THANK YOU VERY MUCH !


    Thursday morning I set up the station, turned on the TCVR and the first thing what I saw was GM4CXM’s CQ.

    This was the first and only G station on my screen. Condx dropped down and I had hours CQ-CQ-CQ with no replay.
    But time-to-time stones appeared and I have logged altogether 3 SSB and 41 FSK441 stations.
