the club station HB9CA
A group of 12 hams founded the "Letzi-DX-Group HB9CA" in 1977. We found an old farmer house at a nice place with a perfect view and outstanding DX-conditions. After two years of work, we had our shack and the antenna farm.
At the moment, we are working with these antennas:
- 160m: full size dipol (homemade)
- 80m: pyramid antenna (homemade)
- 40/30m: 4 el. dualband yagi (Optibeam)
- 20m: 6 el. monoband yagi (Telrex)
- 12/17m: 4 el. dualband yagi (Optibeam)
- 15m: 5 el. monoband yagi (HyGain)
- 10m: 5 el. monoband yagi (HyGain)
- 6m: 7 el. yagi (M2)
- 6/10/12/15/17/20 m: 2 el. SteppIR
- 2m: 2x20 el. monoband yagi (homemade)
- 70cm: 38 el. monoband yagi (M2)
During the winter months, we install
- vertical antenna for 80m (homemade)
- 8 beverage receiving antennas (homemade)
The equipment in the shack is a K3 from Elecraft and an ACOM-1000 PA.
During contests, we work in the M2-category with another K3 and an ACOM-1010 PA.
