A great welcome to the Multi-op contest station IO7A. This station is the result of the engagement and the will of three friends, IW7CPY Angelo, IZ7ECT Miky and IZ7KHR Frank.
The intention is to build a complete multi-operator contest station, but this will be made a little at a time.
The intention is to use two locations: the first is the station of Angelo IW7CPY in the hinterland of Bari, in the south-east of Italy, 400m of altitude, with a total open space on 360°. This setup provides a tower with a 3 elements STEPPIR with 40m and 6m kits and dipoles for 80-160m; 2 yaesu ft-950 and a kenwood ts-2000, next upgrade will be told!
The second location is the station of IZ7KHR, that is under construction and provides a tower with a 6 elements delta loop (2 for 10-15-20m) and a 2 elements moxon for 40m, a dipole for 80m and a 4 squared slopers system for the Top Band. The radio is a yaesu ft-950, there is also the possibility to have a second ft-950 by Angelo… The setup will be the best for a so2r operation and also for multi-op. There will be also full automatic band decoder and antenna selectors. Other futures will be told!
So if you would other infos about us you can refert to the homepage of the station. There are also an online log and qsl card info.
Now, for the first time, we have decided to partecipate to ARI DX INTERNATIONAL CONTEST from 2 to 3 may 2009. So we hope to listen you on the air! GL IN CONTEST!!! IO7A CONTEST TEAM.
