I got in touch with ham radio in 1987 at age of 11 at club station HA8KQV in Oroshaza. I got my first licence (HA8LMC) in 1990. I am a CW enthusiast and most prefer HF contesting and chasing DX.
QTH is Szigetszentmiklos, which is a small riverside town 5km south from Budapest. I live there with my wife Wanda and son Denes; born in May, 2010. We have two fat dogs as well.
FT2000, FT897D, PA: UG100/1200, AL-811HX
3L triband Yagi (HyGain), 5Band Spiderbeam, DX-77 multiband vertical, 18m Spiderpole, 2el Yagi for 40m all for home QTH.
Home made monobanders for contesting at Matra QTH: 4L Yagi for 20m, 4L Quad for 20m (W6PU design), 5L logcell wire Yagi for 20m, 2x6L Yagi for 15m.
Some near past contest results:
- 2010 WW DX CW SOHP15: EU 4.
- 2011 WW WPX CW SOHP15: EU 5.
- 2012 ARRL DX CW SOSB20M: World 5./EU 4.
Picture: North West (W/VE) view from the antenna at Matra QTH I used to operate from during contests. A single TA-19 (19m high) telescopic crankup mast and one of the monobanders do the job decently from here. Setting it up during the local fall/winter prior the contest is also nice.
QSLing: most preferred way is via the buro, unless I have sent you a direct request.
