I am "Mick", licensed in 1962 as DJ8EP.
AGCW # 3711, SKCC # 11129, Flying Pig # 3302, CTC # 2969
My working conditions are moderate.
My transceiver is the IC-706, made in 1995 - modified for 60 mtr and QRPp. The rig is still doing fine with a 500 Hz CW-filter. I am also very satisfied with my true balanced line tuner MFJ-974 - the "big" box in the middle.
For 25 years, I have been using the memory keyer K-1 from Logikey together with a Bencher paddle.
On all bands from 80 to 6 meters, I use a doublet, 2x18 m long and up 35 feet. (Photo: 22 dec, 2012).
You may look for me here.
I am at present often qrv on 5 MHz with 90 watts output. See results.
But life is more than ham-radio ! Photo on top: Me and my cairn terrier XARA on our daily tour in the mountains (22 July, 2013). For dog-lovers: Find some pictures and infos about our dogs here .
