The SJ2W Contest Station - Mikael Larsmark SM2WMV
July 2014
My name is Mikael Larsmark, SM2WMV and I'm 31 years old. I got my ham radio license when I was 15 and have always been having a big interest in building things.

Many of you active contesters on the west coast has probably heard SJ2W on 20m time and time again while the band has been rather dead towards Europe. With a station located up in the north part of Europe we have the advantage of having west coast openings very late and at times during full nights on 20m, sometimes even 15 but rarely on 10m.

This is our chance of being competitive and with absence of aurora we can even sometimes be rather competitive in Europe. However, when that layer of auroral absorption is there, we have no chance at all regardless of how big stations we build.    more
