When you rent the station you get:
- Access to the station hut with relax room and kitchenette.
- Access to the antennas.
- Antenna switch with two outlets.
- Tree desks with PC monitors (HDMI).
- Good internet connection, wifi and wired.
- One guest radio (if it works). Some visitors do not treat equipment the way it should be treated, so we cannot guarantee it works at all times.
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 our main radios and amplifiers.
We recommend to bring your own radios and amplifiers.
