The preparation of LZ2KAC for shortwave national championship organized by BFRA 2016 started

   On 02.04.2016 (Saturday) around 13:00. a team led by LZ2JR and consist of: LZ2RS, LZ2ISI and LZ2VAK, wend to Uzana locality.
   Traditionally, the host for our participation in the tournament will be hut "Partizanska pesen" (QTH locator - KN22OS).
    The team arrived around 14:00. In the hut where he had to perform dismantling of Spider Beam antenna used by LZ2JR and LZ2RS for the competition Russian DX Contest and to mount the antenna Inv-V range of 7 MHz instead.
   Among the nature in the wonderful spring weather, the team's work was going smoothly. The Spider Beam antenna was disassembled and immediately began preparing Inv-V.
   The hosts were a good company and kindly helped while the team worked on preparing and raising the antenna. Guests of the lodge, often stopping their eyes on what has been done.
    The team raised the antenna and make measurements with antenna analyzer. It was found that adjustment in the arms is required because the resonance of the antenna is about 6950 kHz. After multiple adjustments in the length of the arms, the resonant frequency of the antenna is received in the middle of the SSB division.
    The arms of the antenna were fixed good, the buckles of the mast too, and this finnished the tasks for the day. The work ended around 18:00.
    All are hoping the radio club to be successful with this antenna at local connections during the tournament.
    Next Saturday should be mounted transceiver, power amplifier, computer Contest Log software.
    Regards, hopefully LZ2KAC be heard on HF bands.
