To Southern California Contest Club:
Dear Fellow DX-ers and Contesters,

You are cordially invited to the Asia Pacific DX Convention 2014, which will take place November 14-16, 2014.

In addition to our usual presentations on recent DX-peditions, technical sessions, DX dinners and so forth, this convention offers something special. Japan is where most of the amateur radio equipment is developed, and you will have the opportunity to join a tour to the Icom factory, participate in a technical session led by the Icom HF radio design team, and more.

All of the programs at APDXC are conducted in English! For more details, please visit the APDXC website. For convention updates, check our website often, or send an email to subscribe to the APDXC newsletter: mail@apdxc.org.

We look forward to welcoming you at the APDXC in Osaka, Japan. - APDXC Committee / JA3USA

The SJ2W Contest Station - Mikael Larsmark SM2WMV
July 2014
My name is Mikael Larsmark, SM2WMV and I'm 31 years old. I got my ham radio license when I was 15 and have always been having a big interest in building things.

Many of you active contesters on the west coast has probably heard SJ2W on 20m time and time again while the band has been rather dead towards Europe. With a station located up in the north part of Europe we have the advantage of having west coast openings very late and at times during full nights on 20m, sometimes even 15 but rarely on 10m.

This is our chance of being competitive and with absence of aurora we can even sometimes be rather competitive in Europe. However, when that layer of auroral absorption is there, we have no chance at all regardless of how big stations we build.    more
