Hi everyone, i'm 50 years old and i'm electrician.
I've been authorized on amateur radio frequency in 1991 and i love radioelectricity since 70's.
Part of my traffic is in digital modes (ROS, RTTY, PSK, JT65, Olivia),SSB/Hellschreiber/SSTV but anyway mainly in manual CW.
My setup: Kenwood TS450, HCom 10>6m transverter, Kenwood TS700G, VHF 9ele yagi for /P, Cushcraft R7 HF and Vertical V.UHF Comet antennas.
For digital modes i use G4ZLP "DigitalMaster Pro+"
for my TS450 (CAT/data in one and single USB interface).
I'm also on air with an homebrew magnetic loop antenna 6 meters girth for the low bands.
I love QRP & QRPP traffic with Heathkit HW7, TenTec Century 22 and 2 X F6BQU 30 & 40m homebrew TRX (500mW HF power & optional 5W homebrew P.A), TenTec 254 antenna tuner.
I enjoy my CW traffic with CT599mx iambic paddle (beautiful UR5CDX design), vintage Heathkit HD1410 keyer and other straight keys.
.Particularity: in cw my personal use of dual paddles key is lines — — — on thumb
& dots • •• on middle fingers as the left handed vibroplex bug used with right hand. Sometimes i use it also in conventional pratice but only in reduced speed (i've wired a single paddle reverser in each of my keyers).
I use a 12m Spiderbeam mast & HF dipoles for my /P activity beyond 1400m height.
My Qsl is ok via eQsl.cc and/or via bureau.
