Hello, I am Jaime or "Jim", I am now retired but I worked for the Telephone Company controlling communications submarine cables equipment at ground stations in Mallorca.
I have got my license as Radio Amateur from 1981 and since then I have been always active, my main interest in Radio is DXing for DXCC, CW, SSB and RTTY from 160 to 6m, it is easy to find me on CW (99%) from 17 to 80m.I try to work 160m but I live in a small QTH 30m by 15m size, so no place for good antennas, also I suffer from very bad QRM from nearby 3 BC AM and also a big Power-Station at the side which supply power to Palma, so sorry if I can not hear you, QRM is about "9" on 160m, "7" on 80m, but I try very hard.
I am very interested also in new technology, equipments and antennas.
Rigs: TS-990 and Elecraft K3-P3.
Amps: Expert 1.3K and old Drake L7.
ATU's: Palstar HF-Auto.
I have a 18m crank-up tower over a small flat terrace 4m high, a new Ultrabeam VL2-3 at 22m. Two half sloper for 80m, one loaded with a coil and folded for 160m, to keep it in my small lot and also a half sloper for 60m, a new vertical R-8 use in diversity with the K3 . For 6m is a 7EL M2 yagi at 25m and also the VL2-3 as a 4EL for 6M.
The tower is Shunt-Fed for 160m with 4 Folded Elevated Radials, connected 6m high, not working at the moment.
I have mountains from NW, N to NE that blocks my signals to part of this areas so DXing are quite difficult.
I hope to work you again, thanks to look up.
NOTE: Please if you want a QSL direct, include an envelope self addressed and enough cash or IRC to pay the post and PLEASE NOT CERTIFIED not necessary here.
