There is something about me
When Woodstock festival had been realized (Summer of '69), I just was born. Although I prefer Rock and Roll music (Charlie Daniels Band, Flash Cadillac, Elvis, Dion, Go Cat Go, Foggy M.R., Cry Baby, Cadillac, Group'n' Swing), exist as a Rockin' DJ and sound technician, I chose AMATEUR RADIO work to my main hobby.
In my childhood I shared my freetime between waterpolo trainings and equipment buildings.
Now I work in a telecommunication firm, as a technical engineer. We install and repair the big telephone-switching systems all around the country. I like this job, but my real interest area is the wireless communication.
In the last 25 years I wrote by the dozen technical articles for the greatest hungarian amateur magazine - RADIOTECHNIKA.
I accept the trend, that more and more people buy the professional tools, but I try to make the most part of my station by myself. Fortunately I have opportunity to construct different kind of equipments (e.g. transceivers, power amplifiers, antennas).
In the recent past I designed and created a 2 elements 80m Yagi antenna. It was one of my wildest dreams, that came true at the spring of 2011. This Yagi covers the whole 80m band in 6 different switchable segments. My main radio is an IC-765 transceiver and the next antennas:
- Ground mounted vertical and RX 4SQ on 160m
-2 el. Yagi on 80m
-2 el. Cubical Quad and rotatable dipole on 40m
-2 el. Cubical Quad on 30m
-2 el. Cubical Quad on 20/15/10m
There are some frozen antennas in winter 2012
And this is the QTH inside
I like short wave operation, not especially the contesting, but the DXing on the lower bands.
99% of my QSO's made for CQ-DX. Good to hear the booming signals from the other part of globe, but I also prefer the mystic, light signals as well.
If You would like to test Your antenna systems (or my ear :) ), just feel free to reduce the PWR and give a QRP call. It's a good fun!
Anyway, me and some friends of mine usually build different kind of antennas at my QTH, where I have to do a lot of gardening work too (mainly in summer).
You can find more pictures at my personal website: http://www.ha8rm.fw.hu (Click here)
So, that's all about myself, I hope we'll meet at amateur bands.
About the QSL
If You need my QSL, please send Your card direct way, I am surely replying to it. But please attach an address label /don't need envelope/ and 2 USD or 1 IRC for the postage (The hungarian post fees are very high, 1 USD doesn't cover the reply charge). Thank You!
