February 14, 2008 - February 18, 2008
The idea of going to Liechtenstein for a ARRL DX contest was born during the DXpedition for the Russian DX Contest 2007. Back than, we felt we were on the wrong side of the mountains since the QTH (Chalet Parsüla) has high mountains (Alps) to the East and therefore the Russian stations were all pretty weak. In contrast to that, the QTH has clear shots from North West to South West and we were enjoying nice pile-ups from North and South America before and after the contest. We thought that this QTH has some potential for an activation in an ARRL DX contest.
From last year's team DJ4MZ, DK4YJ and DK9TN are on board once again, but unfortunalety DK5TX and DL5RMH will have other commitments and will not be able to join us. However, it didn't take long to convince DJ2MX and DJ5MW, both CW enthusiasts and contest addicts ;-) to join our team. We will take part in the ARRL DX CW contest as HBØ/NØMX in the M/2 category.
We are hoping that the weather conditions will not be too rough during our stay. The chalet is located about 1200m asl (4000ft asl) and there can be lots of snow around the house in February. Anyway, we are looking forward to working you from 160m to 10m... or let's say 15m ;-)
