IARU UHF SHF Contest 2010 - LY2WR

Coming to VHF QTH from Vilnius (80km by road) had a lot of optimism, as Heburn Tropo Forecast looked quite promissing for the weekend.
LY2WR arrival
It was calm even on Gedanonys hilltop, 245m above sea level. About 60kg of gear, food and water to be carried up the stairs further 40 meters to LY2WR shack.

Unfortunately, tropo was just average, for 3rd year we are waiting for troposferic duct conditions to coincide with one of the large european contests.

All in all, we are happy about the results, which are better than in 2009.Contest Report from LY2WR in KO24FO at 432 MHz

Yet another contest with very poor conditions, but because of several national Field-Days going at the same time, activity was very nice, thus the fun :)

The highlight was first ever LY-OK QSO on 13cm : LY2WR KO24FO - OK2KYC JN99BM 712km, 2009-July-05, 03:36UTC.

See you in next VHF contest! 73 from the team, Rytis LY4U

ly2va.jpg The idea to join forces with LY2VA came during conversations after one of the LYAC/NAC tuesday activities. Aloyzas LY2VA (ex-UP2BBC) is one of the V/U/SHF pioneers in Lithuania and holder of many “firsts”. Photo: Aloyzas LY2VA at LY2WR Club station.
ly2wr-101.jpg We decided it should be interesting to try one of the SHF bands above 23cm during contest weekend because of enhanced station activity. LY2VA promised to build a 8-10W PA for his existing DB6NT for 13cm (2320 MHz) and he did exactly that. Photo: LY2VA 13/23/70cm, LY4U 2m
ly2wr-71.jpg So it becomes clear - the May 2/3 weekend is going to be first serious 13cm DX operation from LY, and the adrenaline levels rise… Photo: 40m high brick tower with LY2WR at the top, and commercially used steel radio tower besides.
ly2wr-61.jpg On friday afternoon the whole team of 3 (LY2VA, LY3BF, LY4U) is already at the new LY2WR KO24FO site - dominating hill in the central part of LY (240m a.s.l. + 40m brick tower). Photo: 144 MHz 11el (top), 432 MHz 20el (below)
ly2wr-111.jpg The place is also somewhat remote from any industrial activities, so the bands are relatively quiet, except for few bad insulators on nearby 110KV line.
ly2wr-81.jpg We had to extend one of the two masts to fit a 50cm dish to be used on 13cm. 2m/70cm/23cm antennas were there already. Photo: 1296 MHz loop-yagi and 2320 MHz dish at 285m a.s.l.
ly2wr-91.jpg Friday evening - we are all set. First QSO on 13cm with LY3AY (50km) 59/59 - all seem to work as expected. Starting to listen to the beacons. And indeed, as the air cools fast after sunset, temperature inversion occurs - at around 22UT ES0SHF/B on 23cm is already 599 (460 km). Unfortunately even on 70cm/2m all CQ-s go empty - everybody’s gone to bed. So do we, take a few hours break.
ly2wr-18.jpg Saturday morning 05UT - ES0SHF fading out fast, but OZ7IGY and couple of SK7 beacons on 70/23/13cm are there, desperately looking for scandinavian QSO partners on ON4KST Microwave Chat. A luck finally - Christian OZ2LD from JO54TU logs in, so we quickly QSY to 2320 MHZ and make easy QSO which is first ever LY-OZ on 13cm and new LY record for that band at 823km. See fine Christian’s station here: http://www.sitecenter.dk/oz2ld/
Photo: LY2VA in QSO with Vitalijus LY3AY on 13cm - a very new band here in LY.
ly2wr-21.jpg 14:00 saturday - the contest begins, for the first time we have 3 operators and a capability to operate 3 bands simultaneously. Even with that, every QSO is difficult - the main european activity starts about 800km away. I would like to ask SP/OK/OM and Scandinavian stations to turn antennas more often to LY - there are always few stations willing to participate in these large European contests. Photo: an HF IC-735 with 23/13cm transverters on top, 2m/70cm FT-857, ON4KST chat as an essential part of today’s VHF contesting, 2m/70cm/23cm FT-736R.
march-ctest-map-2009-ly2wr.jpg 2m highlights - two little pileups of DL stations from JO60/61/62/70/71 area at around 21-22UT, and a HA/OM pileup from JN97/98/87/88/89/KN06 around 00UT. Later a fine SSB QSO with DL0GTH for 2m ODX 1020km - the QSB went up just enough to exchange contest numbers, never heard them again. Called OE5BGN/P at 976km for about 30min but could not break the DL/OK stations wall. Relatively easy QSOs with many OK/OM mountain-top stations - thank you for not forgetting to turn antennas towards LY. Photo: QSO-map LY2WR 144 MHz from 1-st IARU subregional VHF Contest, March 2009. Taken from http://iaru.oevsv.at (where everybody can send a log now).
ly2wr-41.jpg As it most often happens, there was no inversion thus no tropo for the contest period, the long try on 13cm with Pertti OH2AXH resulted in only some traces of 13cm CW signal, impossible for QSO. Still decided to try 13cm with Ulf SM7LCB JO86GH on sunday morning. Yes! A weak CW signal comes out of noise, and 0730UT we complete a 539/519 QSO at 534km for the first ever LY-SM on 13cm band. Listen to this QSO at SM7LCB website.Photo: 13/23cm antennas and clear horizon to East for 100s of kilometers, from where only one station was QRV - EW1ST…
ly2wr-51.jpg All in all, this was one more great VHF DX and Contest weekend, looking for many more in future! LY2WR contest report is below. Thanks again to everybody for turning antennas to LY and spotting us in DX-cluster, 73 and cul! Photo: Arvydas LY3BF prepares to dismantle the 13cm dish as we pack for home after the Contest.

LY2WR/P in BCC Contest 2008

ly2wr-1.jpg New LY2WR QTH is long abbandoned brick radio tower in KO24FO, 50km west from Vilnius. We did it LY2WR/P in 2008, since 2009 it is LY2WR (without /P) which means look for us in every contest!
ly2wr-2.jpg Tower itself is 40m high, which totals 280m a.s.l. for antennas - one of highest spots in LY and East Baltics
ly2wr-3.jpg Icing is not uncommon up there all winter long (280m vs average 0-50m a.s.l. in LY)
ly2wr-4.jpg Steel tower currently in commercial use, as seen from the window of the brick tower. It is shadowing some 10 degrees to South, in all other directions it is TOTALLY CLEAR for hundreds and thousands of km, as seen in next photo.
ly2wr-5.jpg Sunrise - direction UA3/UT. Dirt is not on lens, it’s windows - not cleaned for 20 years. Going outside (on the roof) is an operation done using mountaineers equipment, so we don’t have many photos from there.
ly2wr-6.jpg North view - there are no obstacles up to Helsinki and beyond. The shadow of the 40m high brick tower is visible.
ly2wr-7.jpg About 600kg of gear were carried up these stairs by LY3BF and LY4U
ly2wr-8.jpg The termometer shows temperature inside at the arrival for the BCC MS contest 2008.
ly2wr-9.jpg There was no electric power, water or heating in the top room of the tower. It was not used for about 20 years. We had to install everything ourselves.
ly2wr-10.jpg Arvydas LY3BF operating LY2WR/P on FSK441 in BCC MS Contest 2008
ly2wr-11.jpg LY2WR/P December 12 2008 - note the electric heater by LY4U’s feet. Without it we would not survive.
ly2wr-12.jpg Arvydas LY3BF preparing meal for the team of two at the improvised LY2WR/P kitchen.
ly2wr-13.jpg Rytis LY4U (ex-LY2BIL) operating the station. FT736R was driving two PA with separate antennas, additional IC728H and a 2nd laptop was used to RX 2nd antenna.
ly2wr-14.jpg And for those in doubt - no, we did not drink anything stronger than mineral water. At least until the end of contest ;)
ly2wr-15.jpg Our signal quality was a real concern because of commercial equipment nearby, so we took it seriously.
ly2wr-16.jpg Main PA had it’s own room because of a noise produced by the air blower. Stairs to the roof are visible behind.
ly2wr-17.jpg 25 year old LY2WR 600W 2m PA on 1xGU-74B lost a transformer 2nd day, and got an emergency repair.

Jau aišku kad bandysim įsikurti mūrinio bokšto viršuje. Teks dalyvauti “stacionarioje” įskaitoje nes naudosime ~220V ir pagalbines struktūras antenoms. Koks skirtumas, vistiek ekspedicija.

Penktadienis
Ryte susirenkame LY4U bute ir toliau tikriname techniką. Transiverio FT736R dažnis šokinėja sukant rankenėlę, sugaišę kokias 3 valandas pasiduodame - teks dirbti šitaip ir daugiausia ant CQ. Patikriname 2m antenos elementų ilgį pagal aprašymą - kaip ir įtarėme, ankstesnių ekspedicijų metu viskas supainiota iš dviejų KLM-2M11X antenų. Kruopščiai sužymime direktorius atitinkamu brūkšnelių skaičiumi ir pasigaminame 2 trūkstamus elementus. Abi antenos sukomplektuotos (kaip paaiškėjo vėliau, prireikė tik vienos - vertikalios poliarizacijos yagi-ui išsikelti nebeliko vietos ir laiko).

Tikriname likusią technikos dalį ir pradedame pakuotis. Laikas spaudžia. Aiškėja kad Arvydo sūnų iš darželio ims močiutė, o XYL iš darbo Vilniuje namo į Trakus važiuos autobusu. 17 val. Startuojame. Užsukam į Trakus. Vytauto gatvėje pristabdžius kažkas šaukia “tėveli” - močiutė veda LY3BF atžalą iš darželio. Pamojuojame ir varom užkąsti bei maisto į IKI. Dabar turim viską, pirmyn į contest QTH!

Iki Gedanonių apie 5km. 145,500 FM kažkas pradeda krebždėti. Po truputį kylant aukštyn signalai auga, LY2AA su LY2CV. Pasikviečiame Kastytį ir pasigiriame iš kur bandysim dirbt. Pasirodo vieta jam puikiai žinoma ir net jis pats iš ten yra užmezgęs pirmą QSO tarp LY-SP kažkuriame iš UTB diapazonų. Tai duoda vilčių. Iki vietos 100m, LY2AA signalas jau per visą FT212 skalę. WOW.

Mus priima kaip ir buvome susitarę. Šeimininkė geru žodžiu mini Liną LY2BHP kuris iš čia dalyvavo 2001(?) lauko dienoje. Ačiū Linai kad palikai gerus įspūdžius apie radijo mėgėjus, stengsimės ir mes nepasišiukšlinti.

Siaurais laipteliais lipame 40 metrų į viršų. Viskas apleista, balandžių š. iki kulkšnių. Elektrą teks vestis apie 30m iš apačios, nuo to ir pradedame. Arvydas pradeda gaudyti internetą. LY4U pradeda tempti viską į viršų. Apie 400kg mantos. Po 10 reisų drabužiai kiaurai šlapi. Arvydas pagaliau pagauna internetą ir padeda sutampyti likusius 200kg. Foto aparatas nulūžo, teks naudoti mobilniko 1mpix.

Šeštadienis

atvaizd030.jpg

Apie 02 nakties viskas viršuje, atsidarome liuką ir nusitempiame virves prie kurių rišimės patys, montuodami antenas. Arvydas eina numigti, as susirenku ir išsikeliu 2m yagi. Diapazonas pilnas švyturių: OZ4UHF 579, SK7VHF 539, OH2VHF 599, SK4MPI 519, visi žmonės miega. Kaip paaiškėjo vėliau, nuo šio momento praėjimas tik blogės, varžybų metu nei vieno iš šių švyturių nebus nė pėdsako. Aš iš tų kurie prieš varžybas užmigti negali, šūkaloju CQ. Pirmas atsako RW3LL - 59/59. Po to pasipila UA3X, UA3Y, UA3A, EW, UA1…Atsikelia Arvydas ir nugina nuo transiverio. Laikas montuoti ir kabinti likusias antenas. 6m diapazono atsisakom, ir gerai padarėm.

atvaizd015.jpg

Apie 16,00 beveik pasiruošę - susirišame ant 23cm su LY2BAW ir LY2AA - abu 59+40, rodos klaidų nepadarėm. Sukvailioja elektroninis raktas, teko taip ir dirbti, padaužant kumščiu. Transiveris ant šono, toks įspūdis kad dažnis mažiau šokinėja šioje padėtyje. Dangtis irgi nuimtas, kažkur dinginėja kontaktas, nebėra laiko ieškoti - kartono gabaliukas tarp korpuso ir vienos iš plokščių rodos padeda. Šokam į mašiną, nusiprausiam šiek tiek balandžių š. kaimyniniame ežeriuke, užkandam ir bėgam į viršų. 16.59.

atvaizd012.jpg

CQ TEST. Dar siurprizas - antenos sukiklis įsijungia nuo aukšto dažnio. Nebėra kada aiškintis, teks kiekvieną kart pasukus išjunginėti maitinimą. 2m diapazone kviečia po 2-3 LY/YL/EW stotis iš karto, nepasiduodami pailapo pagundai kiekvieną korespondentą iš karto varomės ant 70/23 cm. Sunku pasakyt ar tokia taktika pasiteisino, nes ryškiai praradom dar kažkiek egzistuojantį tropo į rytus, LY2SA tuo metu pridarė nemažai UA ant 2 metrų, kurių vėliau jau nebebuvo galima padaryti.

Sekmadienis

atvaizd026.jpg

Apie 3 nakties viskas rimsta. Aplinkiniai korespondentai perdirbti, pavyko nugriebti paskutinius plevenančius UA3, praėjimas galutinai pasibaigė. Prasideda super stočių iš europos gaudymas giliuose QSB. Ir taip iki varžybų pabaigos. LY4U nusminga vienai val. per 2 paras. Susipainioję pradedam šnekėti SSB telegrafiniame ruože - ačiū kažkam iš LY kad perspėjo.

atvaizd023.jpg

Džiugina Lietuvos stočių aktyvumas - ir portabilių ir stacionarių. Iki pat varžybų pabaigos vis nauji LY aparatiniame žurnale. Visiems ačiū už ryšius!

atvaizd028.jpg

17.00. Viską ardom, vėl boginam siaurais laipteliais 40 metrų žemyn ir kraunam į mašiną. Šeimininkė šypsosi ir kviečia vėl atvažiuoti. Rodos nepasišiukšlinom. 23,00 startuojam LY2BAW kryptimi. Pavargę ir labai laimingi. Balandžių š. nusiplausim jau tik namie.

Treciadienis, 6 metrai

Paprastas dalykelis, dipolis 2x 1.495m, atrodo gavosi rezonansas 52.700, dar yra laiko pastumt… tegu fotkes kalba pacios uz save. QSO skaicius=1, GM0ELV, toks jau nepastovus tas diapazonas.

Nuotraukose matosi LY4U ir kaimynas Vygintas, padejes kelti vienadiene antena ir (!!) budamas interneto guru, uzdaves kokius 150 klausimu ka visa tai reiskia.
