It was in May 2005 when our dream came true and we have bought 19,000 square meters (4.7 acres) of bare field. We began to build our HF QTH with 13 members of the OL7M team:
OK1CU, OK1CW, OK1CDJ, OK1DF, OK1FRE OK1HRA, OK1MU, OK1TYM, OK1UGA, OK1UOW, OK1XUB, OK1YM and OK2ZAW.
We are active on all bands, starting on our favorite band 1.8MHz and ending on 10GHz microwave band. There is our QTH in the foothills of Orlické hory (Eagle mountains)
about 80 miles east of the capital city Prague, in locator JO80cf.
There are three HF small houses with two-band shacks in each of them and one small separate house equipped for VHF-UHF EME operation. In addition there are two other
houses used for accommodation and living.
We have got eight towers nowadays and we hope to build two others for 10m and 40m soon.
Thanks to design and work of Dan OK1HRA and our main technical guru Jan OK2ZAW (http://remoteqth.com/
all HF Yagies, antenna switches, stack matches, rotator control servers and workplace controllers are home made.
We participate in all big contests in all modes during the year: CQWW, CQ WPX, ARRL, CQWW 160, IOTA, ARRL Roundup, OK-OM DX, OK DX RTTY. We are also regular members
of the OK team in HQ IARU contest.
We broke the border of 100,000 contest QSOs during the ARRL Roundup 2014 contest.

For us, the amateurs in the heart of Europe, each QSO with W6/7 stations is an exhilarating experience. Thank you very much for that and we hope to hear you soon again!
