1296 MHz EME echo

welcome to HB9Q homepage….

All-new homepage

After more than 15 years we have completely redesigned our homepage. The target was to make it more user-friendly, more up-to-date and more informative. Some highlights are:
  • more pictures, videos and sound samples
  • up-to-date initial-lists (automated update after each HB9Q activity)
  • visitor-oriented navigation
Last but not least our HB9Q-Logo.

All-new EME Logger

After more than 10 years, we have completely rebuilt our EME Logger. The goal was to make it more user-friendly, adding at the same time additional features. Some highlights:
  • very easy to use. Understanding the functionality is intuitional
  • pleasant to work with
  • 1 logger per band (from 50 to 10xxx MHz)
  • you may choose (customize) the bands you are interested in
  • you may attach pictures, pdf and text-files, audio-files, videos, screenshots and links to your message
  • semi-automated and easy way to address messages
  • easy conversation functions (highlight and include/exclude calls)
  • quick and easy traffic-history look-up
For security reasons all users of the „old“ logger have to re-register, sorry for the inconvenience. Please fill-in all data requested. It is of very good use for all users to have your up-to-date station-information available on one click.

ARRL EME Contest 2018

We plan to be QRV during 27./28. October and 24./25 November, the ARRL EME Contest weekends. However we will not participate in the contest. As always we will be looking especially for new (initials) and QRP stations. Please look for us on HB9Q and N0UK loggers. We will be online and announcing on a regular base our activity times and frequencies there.
Hope to work you and good luck in the Contest!
