It is the reason why 9Q1EK station is on standby since a very long time. (House robbed, pillaged burglarized in 2009).
Fortunately I could save an old Kenwood TS50 and sometime I made couple QSO with friends, but no Pile up as in the past.
Despite I sent a couple of SOS through couple of Ham web site, no answer !
I had more answers when my station was on air when I sent CQ for Pile up !!
After a long traumatism, (mental and financial) I am under way to build and to try to put 9Q land in EME (nothing of foreseen from 1,8 to 50 mhz). See Articles very soon on the developments for 144 - 432- 1296.
