9A1A: The big Signal from a Small Country (Croatia) - Petar Milicic 9A6A
February 2014
Those who have been active during the DX contests of the past few years are familiar with the big signal emanating from 9A1A near Zagreb, Croatia. The station is owned by the Croatian DX Club, whose members activate it for all major contests. Petar, 9A6A, has been kind enough to provide information about the club and the station

The Croatian DX Club consists of a few of the best radio amateurs in Zagreb and Croatia. Although first heard as 9A1A in the CQ WW DX Contest (SSB) in 1992, the members had been active before the war in Croatia as YT2R and YT2E.

The club began building the tower and antenna system more than 25 years ago. We had seen that if you put too many kilowatts into a bad antenna, you only make big QRM and the results won't be good so we decided to build a good antenna system. We felt we could win in all contests if we could hear the many thousands of US and JA stations that use less than 100 watts and a dipole antenna.    more
