Special radio activities by LA0BY

LA0BY, last updated 25.11.2018


The picture shows my well proven portable setup for 144 MHz, as normally used from hilltop locations. It consists of 2 x 9-ele Yagis (modified Vårgårda) mounted on a telescopic aluminium mast.

Below you find information on upcoming activities as well as some reports on previous events. During activities I can be reached by SMS to +47-90114432 or often through ON4KST chat. I will also try to spot DX on the cluster, but it may not always be working, so monitoring the band is usually a good idea.


Note on my callsign: In Norway we are not required to use CALL/p for temporary hilltop operations. From May 2002 I will therefore use only LA0BY when operating from somewhere in JO59 square. If you hear LA0BY/p I will be operating from another square than JO59.


Nordic Activity Contests

I try to participate in the NAC at least on 144 MHz, but in case of condx above average also on other higher bands.
