Swiss Remote DX Amateur Radio Station at 1'660m

Frederic (HB9CQK) and me are working on a Swiss mountain remote DX-Station project since Sept. 2018. We have many challenges such as strong wind, ice, thunderstorms, snowfall, big temperature differences, Windows 10 update, etc., but I'am happy to report that we have managed to carry out the first few QSO's from this incredible location with our 14-element OptiBeam and the HyEndFed 8 wire-antenna.

Goal of the solution
The aim of our Remote DX-Station is to operate a remote radio site via the Internet, where there are almost no "man-made interference" (e.g. PLC, power supplies, solar power system, DSL-lines, etc.). Ideally, the location is slightly elevated and has a 360° all-round view.
