The 9N Trophy

If you’re still working on your DXCC and 9N is the “missing-one” in some slots, we are happy to help you reaching your GOAL! But if you are a real though boy (or girl!) and you are looking for something really changelling… we have the way to reward you!

We want to encourage CW, SSB and RTTY lovers in each mode as well as the one who will work us in the highest number of band and modes. Showing us that you care about us! hi!

CW A great Palm Radio mini-paddles for the first who will work us at least in 7 bands.



SSB An evergreen Heil Headset offered by CSY&SON for the first who will work us at least in 7 bands.



RTTY A high-quality digi interface made by I5XWW Crispino for the first who will work us in at least 5 bands.

    I need you on any band in any mode–as long as it’s one that will ‘count’ for a DXCC entity. ๐Ÿ™‚
    I’ll be listening with hopes that we will hear each other well enough to make a valid contact.
    Be safe. Have fun. 73 es GL Warren, NW4C

    Awards chasing from ve2 seems impossible since the propation betweeen 9n et VE2 et pretty narrow but I’ll be thrill to try to contact the expedition every time I will hear you on a new band or mode.

    TNX fer 20 mtr CW QSO 11/14/2011 @ 14:38Z – Good propagation from Nebraska over the North Pole & true 599 signal fm 9N7MD. Have fun, and gud DX to all!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. OD5NJ Gaby says:

    Nice to work you on 17m hopefully work you on 80m 160m ..73′

  19. Paul says:

    Please team can you claify some of the spots they are circulating on the DX clusters regarding
    9M permission to operate.
    Then you will silence them all from wrongfull spots and remarks

  20. Paul says:

    we also need you to listen for other countries apart from EU all the time on 10m as 5-15 KC split is far too great

    Hello Paul, we can assure all the friends that our license has been issued to our members at the MOIC in Kathmandu yesterday. We have fulllicence for ALL the HF bands and also for the 50MHz. CU in the pileups!

  24. tony says:

    Hi guys just worked you on 10m G1HJW.. Your doing a great job, been listening to the pile up for most of the morning once the band opened from you to the UK, took time but worth it for the new one for me and one new one towards DXCC.

    Hope to find and work you on another band, but for me just the one has made my day!

  31. Valentin says:

    I worked with 9N7MD 17.11.11 at 13:54 UTC 20M RTTY, but you copy my callsign as RV4LCH.
    Please correct – my callsign is RV4LC. 73 and see you on the other dands and modes!

  32. Ray E. Tillman says:

    Why such a big split? It is interfering with other QSO’s at 18.157.
    Were is your code of eithic?

  33. ben says:

    I would be happy if i could even hear you on one band.

  34. Dima says:

    Hallo . Thanks for the report. 59 from. Dxpedition Nepal 2011 , May name is Dima Please correkt May Coll is UA3IKI i wish you all the best and many DX Dima.

  35. Mick Power says:

    Gentlemen, I nearly fell off my chair when I saw your CQ as 9N7MD…. MY FIRST ever into Nepal and on PSK-31 with a simple Dipole at 3 meters above my roof… Tell me I’m not a Happy Chappie. KEEP up the GREAT WORK GUYS..look for you again, 73 Mick VK4NGW Brisbane Aust

  36. Fred, AF7S says:

    I’m happy just to have ONE contact in the logbook. So far, 17 is about the only band I’ve had decent reception on – enough to actually work you.

    Thanks for a great DXpedition.

    Fred, AF7S

  37. VK4KX, Bernie says:

    I would love to work you on any band for DXCC, and 10m has been good but getting through the European pile-ups on you is a hard task, you are there we can hear you in VK but wow it’s like listening to a chicken farm when you say “QRZ” !
    I will keep trying, patience is one of my many virtues…hi
    Well done guys it takes more effort to do an expedition than just sit in the shack and call CQ.

  38. Mister Roboto says:

    It’s IMPOSSIBLE to work you! You move around way too much, and spend too much time on RTTY. I’ve wasted hours searching the spots for you, then listening, and you are barely heard, when you are at all. Have you devoted enough time to 10 or 15 meters? Anyway, I guess you really DO need 1000 watts, 6 elements, and a 100 foot tower to even have a chance….

  39. Steve K7KO says:

    I believe I have worked you four times, twice on CW and twice on phone. I see that you already have acknowledged the 17 meter phone contact. Amazing. 100 watts of raw USB power into a OCF Windom wire antenna at 50 feet in Oregon. I have to say that working you guys multiple times has been one of my greatest ham radio experiences in 49 years as a ham. Thanks for all your hard work! Steve

  40. Bo, SM2WOR says:

    I am very glad that i was able to work Nepal with my low-power equipment.
    Is ir possible that you change te entry for my QSO, i really want Nepal to be confirmed?
    Your online log says that SM4WOR had a QSO with 9N7MD, 15 m SSB on Nov 18.
    The correct enry should be: SM2WOR, 15 m (21.295), 07:55 UTC, Nov 18.
    I know that for sure because I can not find myself in your online log but I can find SM4WOR and that must be my entry because in Sweden nobody has the same suffix (WOR) as me.
    I really want Nepal to be confirmed, thats why… please… ๐Ÿ™‚

  41. Hi Team,

    wow great job and very happy to have made 16qsos with you . It was hard work and thank you for your efforts.
