Welcome to LB4T in Drøbak

smiley  Please sign my weblog  smiley

I AM located in a small town "Drøbak", near the Oslofjord. (Population approx.15.000). My QTH is about 120 meter AMSL. With view in almost all directions. Drøbak is situated about 40 km south of the the capital city Oslo. The fortress in the photo is "Oscarsborg festning" - Close to Drøbak

(Oscarsborg fortress)


Here you can watch a video of my hometown Drøbak


When "radioactive" i am QRV on almost all HF bands/modes. Also locally on the 2m/70cm bands. Now and then practiseing CW.

Telegraphy - the noble art of communication

I got my license/callsign: "LB4T" in 1974. In 1975 i got my upgraded license/Callsign "LA1HU". After nearly 36 years with "LA1HU" on the air, i applied for, and got my old callsign "LB4T" back on the air. (For nostalgia reasons)

As an Hamradio operator, I think i have been through a bit of everything. And i'm still learning. In the middle of the 70's i join the satellites. AO-6 and AO-7, Both on cw and telephony. Later, in the late 80's and early 90's AO-10/13, UO-22,  KO-23, KO-25, AO-16, LUSAT-19, itamsat, JAS-2 FO-29 and many other "birds" before internet sadly "kill" the pacsat's. Later sadly AO-13 entered the atmosphere and signing off.  

Now i enjoying cubesats, and the "old lady" FO-29 incredibly still going strong ! ;-) 

Now Looking forward to P3E, and Geostationary sats.


About me

I am now retired and enjoying amateur-radio almost fulltime .

I worked as a radio-officer (telegraphist) on the seven seas. Both on merchant ship and cruise ships. I Also had some interesting experience employed at, (that time), the Norwegian largest coastal radio-station Rogland radio (LGB).

But everything has a end. We were outdone by new technology. Telegraphy was replaced by satellite-communication and the telegraphist era was over. Whatever sad, but that's life.

I was later employed at the Norwegian Communications authority.  Former Post- & Telecom authority.
