"Summits have to be climbed, because they are there!"

(George Wallner - Low band DXer - AA7JV)

 

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, 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 devices, 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:

- Vertically polarized Delta loop and various RX antennas on 160m

-2 el. Yagi on 80m

-2 el. Yagi on 40m

-2 el. Cubical Quad on 20/15/10m

 

August 2014, new project! Add 2 more full size elements on 40m band, interlaced them between the 80m elements.

The elements are electrically reverseable, so the 180 degrees "turn" is very easy. Even, the elements are optimalized CW and SSB on both antennas, remotely controlled from the shack too.

 

There are some frozen antennas in winter of 2012 (archive photo)

 

And this is the QTH inside

 

This modest schematic shows my 40m 2el Yagi system.

I apply radiator + director configuration, it has a slightly better radiation, than the classic radiator + reflector setup. The open-end coaxial cable exist as a capacitor, makes the element short, so obtains the optimal director length

 

I like short wave operation, not especially the contesting, but the DXing on the low bands. The lower, the better. :)

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.

73! Peter
