    The RemoteHamRadio.com team with the Radio Club D'Haïti have a special event remote station on the air on a 6700' mountain in Obleon Haiti. The Special Event station HH2AA (Air Ambulance) https://www.haitiairambulance.org/ is a program that supports the people of Haiti. All the proceeds operating this station on the RHR network is given back to the people of Haiti through this fine organization.

    The station is fully remote controlled with two towers @ 100' and 50' with multiple antenna built and installed by the RHR team. The location at 6700' is argubably the best from the Caribbean. The station is operated on solar power ONLY which is limited to running 100w. Dont be fooled by the low power, the PILEUPS are huge.

    The RHR team on the last vist in early September installed new antenna(s) at HH2AA and can be viewed through this climb with a GoPro to the top of the tower. PLEASE Watch in full screen (HD).

    Typical pileup using te HH2AA station. It can be operated with K3/0/10/100 or just the Web-Based (WebDX) "No radio" PC only.

    The video below is operating the HH2AA using the WebDX portal. It was imbedded from Facebook and you will need to use the volume control to turn it up.

    All QSO are uploaded to LOTW within 15 minutes of QSO or QSL direct to Rex NR6M.

    Why does the RHR description say 6400 feet and this description says 6700 feet?

    Inquiring minds need to know :)

    I've had many QSO's with HH2AA on several bands including 160 & 6m. Always a good clean signal and operator, couldn't detect it was a remote until they revealed it.

    Ditto, I worked HH2AA on 17 meters SSB and they were professional and so transparent, I had no idea of the setup until I looked on QRZ.COM

    I was able to work HH2AA with great success. I used an IC7200, Chameleon Whip antenna on my balcony. Good signals but a few lids tuning up on the air.
