SV5/HB9COG microwave DXpedition 28. September to 5. October 2021


On 5. October 2021 we completed our activity. The day after in the morning we packed all equipment. And in the afternoon we started our sightseeing of Rhode Island. Now we enjoy a few days of relaxation and sightseeing before flying back home on 11. October.

Many thanks to all who have worked us and our apologizes to those trying to work us with no luck. A big THANK YOU to all our supporters, your contribution is very welcome!

We hope to work you all in 2022 from an other nice DXCC… Covid-19 permitting!

For our DXpedition summary please have a look at SV5/HB9COG 2021

Take care and keep safe!

1x1el yagi and 60W QSO on 432 MHz EME

We are very happy to have worked MX0CNS, Tom on 20.01.2019 on 432 EME. Tom was runing a dipole and 60W at the dipole. He RXed us at -23 and we RXed him at -29. This was again an amazing QSO with Tom after having worked him in Nov. 2016 with a 2el yagi and 60W. Congrats Tom for your great work on QRPPP EME!

Next Activity

Please look for us on HB9Q (50 MHz – 10 GHz), N0UK (for 144 MHz) and ON4KST (for 50 MHz) loggers. We always announce our activity there.
We may be QRV on all bands (from 50 MHz to 10 GHz) at more or less any time including weekdays. If you like to work us, please let us know by e-mail or just look for us when you are QRV, we may also be there!
Looking forward to work you soon!
