The 29th International HAM Fest Holice 2018 takes place on August 24 – 25, 2018.  I visited the one on Friday (yesterday). I met lots of friends and HAMs in Czech (OK), Slovak (OM) and Croatian (9A) stands. HAMs from the U.K. were there as well. By the way: They have flown from island Jersey...

Deleting a part of my HAM WEB pages

03/11/2017 12:05
Because of the fact that I have operated my HAM WEB pages for about 7 years and a part of information has not been topical yet I have decided to reduce the pages. So I am deleting a part of news, photographs and the  guestbook now.

  Yesterday in the afternoon I met Max, VK2ARZ, in the city of Praha. It was our meeting nr.3. It was my pleasure to talk with Max face to face again.  We talked about bad propagation conditions over last months and the situation of HAM communities in Australia and the Czech Republic. We...

SFI=68 .....

28/07/2017 09:44
This morning (July 28, 2017) the SFI was only 68 (it was almost absolute minimum).  MUF (3000 km) was about 11 MHz at 0639 UTC - according to the Ionospheric Observatory in Pruhonice u Prahy (near Prague). The 20 meter CW band was almost empty in the morning (only a few European stations and...

My QRP operation

10/06/2017 14:30
  Propagation Conditions (especially for DX) are very poor nowadays (SFI has been under 79, there are almost no spots on the Sun, MUF about 16,5 MHz etc.). I am afraid that it will last over life of my generation.  But fortunately - I have worked with about 325 DXCC countries from this...

RETRO TX QRP - new version

05/05/2017 16:08
Because of the fact that the new (WARC) band of 60 meters has not been allowed by the Czech Authorities for OK HAMs I decided to retune the TX from 5,5 to 7 MHz. Now I operate (from time to time) also on 7 MHz band with the RETRO TX QRP (power 5 Watts). You can see the Block Diagram on Picture...

The new WARC band 5 MHz (5351,5 to 5366,5 kHz) will not be open for OK HAMs in 2017.  According to “Radioamater 1/2017” (magazine of the Czech Radio Club): The Czech Telecommutions Office says that OK HAMs can still use a few channels (from 5272.5 to 5405.0 kHz)  when they have obtained...

Member of OK QRP Club

15/10/2016 15:39
I became a member of OK QRP Club (No.: 712). The main reason: Nowadays I frequently operate my RETRO TX QRP on 80 meters CW. Its output power is only 5 Watts. I must say that it is very funny for me. I can add that on October 13, 2016 at about 2000 UTC I worked even with VK3CWB. His RST was 559 and...
