Program: "Remote DXing - Developments & Solutions"
by Michael Zuerch, DG1CMZ/W6
In times of increased city noise, lot restrictions and required personal mobility for the younger generation it becomes increasingly challenging for DXers to stay active in the hobby. Remote radio operation of a radio station in a remote place tackles all these issues. In this talk, we will briefly review latest developments in remote radio operation, followed by an introduction of the particular remote solution operated at the Central German DX Club (CGDXC) that is the home station of the presenter. Technical challenges for remoting a top-notch station in an area prone to lightning, snow storms and with only limited mobile internet service will be addressed alongside how conducting such a project can increase club activity.
