On Sunday, June 16, 2019, we could once again be heard on the band. This time we participated in the Alpe Adria UHF Contest, where we wanted to give away a few points on the 432 MHz band.

We can finally be heard! As a first collective station in Slovakia, on 12 June 2019 at 16:15 local time and after several hours of preparations and measuring, we established our first connection via the Qatar satellite QO-100.
In honour of Ondrej Oravec, OM3AU, who contributed significantly to the development of VHF in Slovakia and the former Czechoslovakia, the Slovak Amateur Radio Association organises the annual Ondrej Oravec Memorial Contest, OM3AU, which runs on the 144 and 432 MHz bands.
Our plans to be active on QO-100 led us today, 13 June, to the village of Topoľovka near Humenné, the home of our friend, Štefan OM0MS.
The date of 15th November 2018 will be recorded in the history of amateur radio broadcasting. The Qatari geostationary satellite Es’hail-2 was launched into space aboard the SpaceX Falcon 9.
