HB9Q, DX group HB9CRQ, was founded mid 1998 by HB9CRQ (Dan, also KT6Q) and HB9COG, Sam. Our QTH is JN47cg in the city of Reinach in the Canton Aargau. We are 520m above sea-level.
The main purpose of HB9Q is to operate DX from 144 MHz to 3400 MHz by sharing HB9CRQ’s shack and equipment.
During September of 1998, after 19 years of activity from HB9CRQ’s old QTH (residential area, see also HB9CRQ QSL-card) all equipment was moved to an industrial area 5 km NW of the old QTH.
The new shack was built on ”the green field”. We are using 4000 sqm (40'000 sqft) fenced-in land. This gives us enough room for several tower-positions with good size antennas.
