1984 - 2014: 30 Years on air..... 1st QSO with Cornwall/England in September 1984!
Telegraphy (CW) has become my main communication mode on HF and I have been fascinated by the sound of short-wave ever since my parents gave me a short-wave receiver when I was 12 years of age. That was back in March 1984...
Nowadays I do also enjoy to combine travelling and radio whenever possible.
Ragchews are very welcome, "599" standards and F1/F2 functionkey-QSOs are absurd. The same applies for folks who decode CW with their PC. Headphones on and practise!
I would only plug in a mic for a band point or a new country or else and occasionally on 6 m.
I am active from 80 to 6 M. I am not a contester and will never be!
Here are some of my current keys. I do normally use all of them and switch from one to another every few weeks:
Vibroplex "Original Standard", my first bug. Its wired with an aftermarket "cabletidy". It´s fun but please be patient I have started to operate with the bug-key on 18th August of 2014. Initially pretty sobering , it turns out to be such a fun and pleasure that I can´t put my hands off once I am in the shack. But I need to practise and I hence ask for your patience should I sound a bit weird on it
Above my N3ZN Iambic ZN-9. A truely gorgeous key!
Above is the fantastic "Chrome Iambic", handcrafted by I1QOD. Serial No. 06/2013
Above you can see the "Scheunemann Einhebel 2", probably one of best Single-Lever Keys in the world!
This is the world-famous and legendary "Schurr Profi 2" Keyer
....and I am more than glad that I finally found this one: the "Schurr Hand Key"
