Tuesday, 30th July: Utö13 FM-DX-camp is up!

FM-DX-camp in Utö is up again, for the 2nd time this season. The crew is here to prepare Finnish annual national DX-meeting 2013 (SDXL Summer-meeting 2013). Over 40 participants will come to Utö during the coming days and the offcial meeting will be 2-4.8.2013.
For the start the crew consists of 6 listeners: HKU (Harri Kujala), JUS (Jussi Suokas) , JJS (Jukka Soini), OSY (Otso Ylönen) , JJK (Jari Korhonen)  and TAK (Tapio Kalmi)  who is in Utö for the first time.

Many SDR Perseus FM+-receivers and Sony XDR's are on the tables and 8-el.Triax V-/H-antennas + 4-el yagi (for 50-70 MHz) are up.
We arrived to Utö after  midday and luckily it was not raining anymore during antenna installation. The weather will be sunny for the rest of the week!!

No conditions for the Tuesday afternoon or evening. but it is better this way, to built DX-sites with no rush or panic. We might have some tropo for the weekend. Let's see.

Much more photos will be published here later when the meeting is going on.
