22 amateurs participated in hill-fort expeditions.5 of them did it for the first time: LY1BWB, LY2EN, LY2GV, LY2MK and LY3AR.

 

This year a symbolic number of 17 hill-forts was added to the hill-forts list.

 

Like every year, at July 6, the day of King Mindaugas coronation, the hill-fort activity day was organized.

10 expeditions were performed, 17 hill-forts activated.

 

The most active hill-fort program participants were awarded with sponsor prizes –

useful books „Archeological Researches in Lithuania“.

 

This program is well-known in many foreign countries. Amateurs from 24 countries are proud owners of LHFA awards. There are 766 awards issued until now. 101 radio amateur participated in LHFA expeditions. We urge everyone, who wants and can join the efforts to increase LHFA program popularity, because it is unique program in the whole world.

In order to commemorate the year 2017 as Lithuanian hill-forts year, call-signs LY17PM and LY17LP were used in the period of May-August.

The special calls were used in activation of 50 hill-forts. 31 special expeditions were arranged, and operators were LY1BWB, LY1SR, LY1TT, LY2BOK, LY2BIS, LY2EN, LY2HS, LY2KM, LY2MK, LY3AB, LY3IV, LY3VR, LY5AT.

The statistics of hill-forts activation in different regions look as follows: AL- 8, KA- 14, PA- 2, TA- 3,

TE- 5, UT- 15, VI- 3. It is a great pitty, that no any activation from Klaipeda, Marijampole and Siauliai regions was arranged.

7419 QSO with 3480 different stations from 68 DXCC countries were established during the activation period. All the operation was conducted on 80, 40, 30, 20, 17, 15 ir 2m bands. The majority of QSO was established on 20 meters band. The most popular mode was SSB, a bit less QSOs were on CW. Also FM and DIGI modes were used.

The most active supporter of all activations was LY2N, who established 81 QSO with special calls activators. Among foreigners we had the usual leaders: – ES1IP, OH3GZ, OM7OM, OM1AX, SP8LEP. According to the LHFA rules and results achieved, 26 foreign operators reached the limit of minimum 50 hill-forts. This number will increase soon, because some collegues are very close to this barrier.

Lithuanian Parliament (Seimas), taking into consideration, that hill-forts, lying nearby settlements, sacred places, cemeteries, tumulus, ancient roads are the values, strengthening Lithuanian national identity, and that the significance of most objects is not realized and their protection is not sufficient, decided to proclaim year 2017 as the Hill-forts year.

 

There is stressed in approved document, that the hill-forts are the symbol of Baltic culture and earliest Lithuanian State, evidence of self-dependence of Grand Duchy of Lithuania as well as source of inspiration of national revival movement.

 

Lithuanian radio amateurs are participating in this action in the limits of LHFA program.

During the period of May – June 2017, there will be operation from hill-forts, using special call-sign LY17PM and during period of July – August special call-sign LY17LP will be used. Also, operation with regular calls will occur all the year.

 

For this occasion special award is issued.

 

During the year of 2017 applicants must establish QSOs with 17 different hill-forts. All QSOs, using CW, PHPONE or DIGI modes are valid. Applications for award should be sent until March 1, 2018 to award manager’s address: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

 

Award can be issued in electronic form, JPG or PDF style upon applicant‘s request.

Year 2017 is declared as the year of hill-forts, therefore the nomination „Hunter 2017“ is announced.

 

Every different station, operating from hill-fort, gives one point, regardless of band or type of modulation. Every activated hill-fort gives 1 point for activator. All the results will be summarized in the end of the year. Top operators, also top foreign operators will be awarded with the prizes of program sponsors – the books.

 

During the period of May – August activation of hill-forts with special calls is planned.

There were 56 hill-fort activations during the year 2015. 83 hill-forts were activated. 19 amateurs were among hill-fort activators, 3 of them for the first time – LY1UG, LY2TS, LY3EU.

LHFA annual activity day was organized at July 6 in occasion of King Mindaugas coronation anniversary. 9 expeditions were executed and 15 hill-forts were activated.

Activators of hill-forts and the most active program participants received awards from our sponsor - very useful books "Archeological Researches in Lithuania".
Only few activators describe impressions about their trips and adventures in our web site, although there are good opportunities to do so. Obviously they do not pay enough attention and do not want to spend their time for that. The same time these descriptions are extensively read.
