The LY2W Gang - Sam Zalnerauskas LY5W
August 2014
LY2W is the personal callsign of Arturas Snipas (ex-UP2BGF, LY2GF). You can find this call on all bands during the major contests of the year: CQ WW DX Contest, CQ WW WPX Contest.

For these contests a Multi-Operator team is usually organized, mostly in the Multi-Two category. The quantity of operators varies from 5 to 12, depending on people available.

At present we have verticals for 160 and 80 meter bands, 3 element full size Yagi about 30 meters up. For the 20 meter band we have a 5 element monobander about 20m high. For 15 meters a 6 element monobander is put on a 20m high tower. The antenna for the 10 meter band is in the design process, temporarily a 5 element Yagi is used at a modest height.    more
Setting Up an SO2R Station - K6LA / VY2TTDecember 2013
This article will focus on the switching, filtering and ergonomic issues in setting up an SO2R station.

You already know you need two radios and two antennas. Of course, it is best if those two radios are identical to lessen confusion in the heat of battle, but they need not be.

The more separation between antennas the better, but on my city lot in Los Angeles, the antennas are so close that when I raise my motorized tower I have to make sure the yagis are turned the correct way on both towers or the elements will hit.    more
