I am very sad to inform that Mirek Rozbicki SP5IXI (VK6DXI, 7X0DX, 9M8DX, Z21DXI etc.) passed on April 14 from a heart attack. He will be greatly missed by all his family and friends. It happened so suddenly and shocked all of us. Our great HAM, great friend and an example of HAM Spirit is Silent Key for ever.
Friend and QSL Manager
I can confirm QSOs from Mireks’s logs I have (bureau, direct). All of them are also uploaded to the LoTW and are available at the ClubLog. These are:
Unfortunately I have no logs for VK6DXI. Mirek used to confirm all of home QSOs himself.
I am in West Malaysia, from 8th till 26th of August 2014, mainly in Kuala Lumpur.
If time will permit I will try to get on the air, mainly CW. I am scheduled now for visit to Tioman Island, AS-046 between 22-24 Aug.

I am in Zimbabwe since 14th of July and should remain till 3rd of August. I have a radio with me and operate in my spare time. Conditions at the moment are terrible. I am lucky to hear some stations sometimes. I have done some improvement to antennas but so far very few stations in the log. It has never been that bad here…. I hope to get at least few days of a reasonable propagation before I will leave. …keeping fingers crossed.
While visiting relatives in Poland, traditionally I have an eyeball QSO with many members of SP5KMB. A club where my ham radio adventure started. So it happened this year as well on 2014.01.17.
January 2014- a short trip to Sweden. It is a business trip but I managed to squeeze some radio activity (2m and 80m) as well as an eyeball QSO with old mates: Jan SM5FUG and Lennart SM5ENX and made a new friend Mikael SM5ZBJ
I guess nights are always too short 🙂
Traditionally, VK6 VKCC (VK Contest Club)got together few days ago (2013.12.12), just before Xmas to celebrate a great year and to reflect on past and the future.
It was a nice evening with a great company.
It has been a few great days in Kuching!!!
I managed to catch up with few of my friends: 9M8MA, 9W8CH, 9W8KIF, 9M8WAT and met for a first time with 9M8ADX. Great stories, great food and some great QSO’s. With the assistance of Keith 9W8KIF we put up a sloping LW to cover 160-40m bands with a use of AH4 tuner. Location of the sloper was what I have done in the past. I did not notice at first but now there is a big neon sign with hotel name. (see picture) This gave me a bit of noise on 80/40/30m bands and completely “disabled” 160m. Oh well, can’t win them all. I operated as LPAB Assisted and had a thrill. Not as many pile ups as in the past, as I think low power stations slowly disappear in the QRO noise. My score is as per attached. I also managed to have a real feast of the durians which happen to be in season at this time of the year. What a great trip 🙂
It is 9M2 West Malaysia this week….. and it is a big contest weekend. A great opportunity to be active from a great location. I will be arriving in Kuching on 22 Nov for a CW weekend of fun. Catch me if you can 🙂 QSL as always via SP5UAF
I am out of Zimbabwe now. There should be a chance for another visit in the first part of 2014. For QSL, please follow instructions in previous message. Thanks for many contacts.73
