The 2016 IARU HF World Championship not only marks the very first entry of the Kosovo Amateur Radio Association (SHRAK) as a new HQ multiplier, but the week also represents multiple other valuables for Kosovar hams.

In a major outing, the SHRAK youth delegation headed by Driton Sadiku, Z61DX, with  Elona Shatri, Z63ESC, Edona Sela, Z63ESB, and Blindon Krasniqi, Z63BKA, will travel to the IARU YOTA conference in Austria. Their selected team will meet their initial instructors Hans, PB2T, and Martti, OH2BH, as a kick-off for their first trip outside Kosovo. This outing received the sincere support of the Amateur Radio Society of Austria (ÖVSV), the Embassy of Austria in Kosovo, and the Yasme Foundation, Inc.

The majority of the 50+ new hams in Kosovo come from the ranks of the Technical University of Pristina, leading to another interesting link taking place on the professional front. The local university rarely receives visiting teachers, and thus Dr. Kim Östman, OH6KZP, will give a lecture on the latest trends in RF microelectronics circuit development. This session is hosted by the Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering (FIEK) at the Technical University of Pristina, and the Dean of the faculty, Prof. Dr. Enver Hamiti. 

The team will also exercise by hoisting a new Force-12 XR6 beam with a Yaesu G1000DXC rotator on top of the university building, in the heart of capital Pristina. These were kindly donated by the Chiltern U.K. DX Foundation and by Force-12 represented by Bill Hein, AA7XT.

On the weekend the local folks team up with their visitors for the IARU Championship contest, at multiple locations in and near Pristina. The visiting operating team includes Hans, PB2T, Kenneth, OZ1IKY, Pertti, OG2M, Kim, OH6KZP, Martti, OH2BH, Pekka, OH2TA, and Mario, S56A.
