I am selling an AT-Auto automatic 1.5 KW antenna tuner, complete with all paperwork and the software DVD. All anyone needs to do is check for comments about this device. I want $950 plus shipping, though I would prefer pickup in either Hollywood or Encinitas. It's in like new condition.

The HG7T Story - Tibi Nemeth, HA7TM
April 2014
The HG7T station is actually located in the HA0 district, but fortunately the Hungarian rules are similar to those of the US, and I could keep the call, when I moved my contest location to HA0.

I bought the property in 2009 from another ham, who already had a 100 foot tall tower with a TH7DX and an A3WS atop, plus wire antennas for low bands, and several long Beverages for low-band reception. The station was mostly DX-oriented rather than built for contesting.

I stated with erecting 4 new self-supporting 115 feet tall towers, for 40, 20, 15 and 10 meter antennas. The original 40 m antenna was a 3 element Opti-Beam, which I had to replace by a 4 element KLM when we got access to the "high" portion of 40. The Opti-Beam is still there, waiting to be installed for a second direction. For the three high band I chose ZX Yagi antennas, 2x6 for 20, 2x7 for 15 and 10.    more
D4C Monteverde Contest Team - Luca Aliprandi IK2NCJ
April 2014
If you use to tune up the bands during main contest of the year you probably had the chance to copy and work “Delta four Charlie” callsign on all bands.

This call is used to identify a team specifically born for contesting: The “Monteverde Contest Team” It is composed of six members, HB9DUR Andrea, I4UFH Fabio, I4YSS Vic, IK2NCJ Luca, IZ4DPV Max and YL2KL Girts and started the activity in November 2007 when D4C was on-the-air during CQWW DX CW as M/2.

The station is located on the Island of Sao Vicente, one of the ten islands that make up the archipelago of Cape Verde. Monteverde is the name of the mountain where the station has been established.    more
The Rio DX Group PR1T - Felipe Ceglia PY1NB
March 2014
The Rio DX Group’s contest station project started in CQWW SSB 2006, the operators where only PY1NB and PY1ZV, using the callsign ZW1TT.

In this operation’s debriefing we decided to go on with the project, change the callsign to PR1T and evolve the modest “wires and tribander” setup to something a tad larger.

The project target was to have a minimally competitive contest station and a place to let new operators get their feet wet at HF contesting.

On CQWW SSB 2007 we made our debut. Still with a very modest setup, only one amplifier, manual antenna switching but now with a short 2 element 40m beam, We were still rookie operators, we joined the contest mainly to practice and learn.    more
