When you rent the station you get:

  • Access to the antennas.
  • Antenna switch with two outlet.
  • Tree desks with PC monitors (HDMI).
  • Good internet connection, wifi and wired.
  • Guest radio (if it works). Some visitors do not treat equipment the way it should so we can not guarantee it works.

Look at “Station info” for more on the hut and antennas.

The weather can be hard on the antennas up here. We cannot guarantee that all antennas are in perfect order.

We used to rent out the station with radios and amps, but too often we had equipment sent away for months for repair. With the resulted in disappointment from club members and visitors. Therefore we do not rent out radios and amplifiers.

We recommend to bring your own radios and amplifiers.
