Contacting North London (England) with a 30 meters long wire antenna on shortwave (14.220 MHz) from Hunyadfalva, Hungary (2022.09.08)

in OCD7 months ago (edited)

Sometimes I like to experiment. Today I put up a 30 meters long wire in the garden approximately two meters above the ground between two trees. I used this wire as an antenna. The built-in automatic antenna tuner of my amateur radio transceiver (Yaesu FT-450D) is able to tune this wire on any of the radioamateur shortwave bands.

Today I made two QSOs (two-way contacts) with it. Both on 14 MHz. The first was a Russian station from near Moscow (Odintsovskiy Region) (RM2D Mats) (1427 km) (KO85FJ<>KN07EH) on 14.235 MHz but I have not recorded that on video.

My second contact with this wire is England (North London) (2E0YLZ Nuno) (1549 km) (IO91WN<>KN07EH) on 14.220 MHz. I recorded this contact on video. I uploaded the video to my YouTube channel, so you can watch/listen to it down below. You can also hear my Harris's hawk screaming a few times in the background.

I am a licensed radioamateur (my callsign is HA5KZO) since 2012.01.16. I am doing this (transmitting on the radio) legally.

Have a nice day. All the best. Greetings and much love from Hungary.

Hi friend,

The voice quality, after adding a antenna wire to your radio, is quite clear and I can understand almost everything he spoke to you.

Why do say Oscar and Zanzibar words repeatedly? It would be great to know more about radio language. lol

Thanks

Why do say Oscar and Zanzibar words repeatedly?

Oscar is a part of the NATO phonetic alphabet. We use mostly this to spell our callsigns.

2E0YLZ = Two Echo Zero Yankee Lima Zulu.
HA5KZO = Hotel Alpha Five Kilo Zulu Oscar.

Sometimes we deviate from this spelling, and we use other words to spell the callsigns, for example Zanzibar to spell the "Z" letter.

It would be great to know more about radio language.

Probably there is a radioamateur club in your area. They can help. I also learned in a radioamateur club (HA5KHC) in Budapest around 2010-2011. I took my CEPT Novice exam on 2011.12.23. I received my first radioamateur license with the HA5KZO callsign on 2012.01.16.

Have a nice day. All the best. Greetings and much love from Hungary.

I am just interested in that language you speak while communicating with other person, it feels so fascinating to hear the repetitive voices. That's why I requested you to explain.

No, we cannot have radio communication here, it banned and has big consequences if found used radio other than FM listening.

Wish you a great weekend ahead my friend. Thanks again.

This is very sad. Maybe I already asked, but what country are you from? I am just curious, because amateur radio is allowed in most countries.

It's Pak man I told you it has borders with India and China as well. Yeah here the story is different, I only have radio in my card for FM. lol
