CQ WPX CW at OL7M: SP ham fest Los and 1st honey

   There were an amateur event called CQ WPX CW contest last weekend. We had a dilemma if run the contest or went to the HAM fest in Poland. It was really nice to meet new friends from OM: Rado and Adrian from LC Antennas and also SP hams. WX was nice and we had really luck, because it started raining when we went back home. After a few hours we stopped for gold end - fried trout on the SP border :)
   Than we had a lot of to do on Sunday and I went home in the Monday morning. Dan OK1HRA tested new code for the Multi-TRX Band decoder for the new matrix antenna switch. And because of next busy weekends, we have decided to extract the honey. This is really nice and sweet work :)

Spring Holice HAM fest, mountains, work ...

   There were nice weather last weekend and a lot of to do as usual... On Friday I wanted to start our OLD garden tractor but the starter did have damaged gear. Thanks to Slavek OK1CU for the new one! In the Saturday morning I went to a small HAM event - spring Holice meeting. Thanks to members of OK1KHL and especially to Lucka for the tea and great cake! Then I went to the Eagle mountains to see the VHF-UHF membetrs of OL7M. Jindra OK1NOR finally run 2m SOSB in the second subregional contest. And back on Policko (OL7M QTH), we could start and cut the grass. This is hard work, our 19.000 m2 takes about 11 hours... 

   Another thing is new feature in OL7M server (RemoteQTH server). Dan OK1HRA added electic power consumption meter to first 2 houses. It is another graphing tool after solar power meter :-)
