Ham Member Lookups: 9606


Few words for me:

I started with the hobby since 1987 in radioclub LZ1KNP and later for few years I become a member of student radioclub in Sofia LZ1KDP and had been licensed in 1991 as LZ3SF.

I haven't been active for sometime on HF and recently /summer 2010/ I bought an ICOM 7000, September 2011 - FT990.


My rigs could be seen on the primary photo:

FT990 and ICOM 7000 - both are 100w, no PA

Tunner: MFJ-945E used only with ICOM 7000

Antennas: home made kind of verticals, depends on restrictions.


Main ham activity is HF DXing - for 3 years, since I get back in HF ham radio,

I was able to work with 100w 245 DXCC entities on SSB and CW - mixed, worked 8Band DXCC - 80m-10m:


From 2011 up to present: Prague

On the primary photo are my radios in Prague, Czech Republic. Currently I am located in Prague. Unfortunatelly, good anntena is a dream now, I am missing Brno and my previous landlord.

The anntena is kind of Vertical - close to metal rain gutter of the house 10m hight mast, shortened to 8m /not much space/ + few short radials, 5 meters each /this is mainly during warmer period - April - Novemebr/. This somehow works not too bad on 40m.

For 80m I am using the same telescope mast and same radials /added more radials, including full size for 40m, mainly in winter season - November - March/ with separate coaxial cable - configuration is Inverted L.

For higher bands, I am using the same antennas with tuner /do not ask me how they are perform, somehow they are working - better on some, worse on another/.


from Prague:



























For 6 mounts with 100w and mentioned bellow antennas from Brno, I was able to work 162 countries:

Anntenas - all of them are home made:


Vertical with 16m /52.46 feet long/ fibreglass mast, ground mounted for 80/40m with 50 radials /from 4m (13.11 feet) long to 20m (65.57 feet) long / with tuner - works almost everywhere. Especially good resaults on 80m,40m,30m,17m and 15m.


Delta Loop for 40m, 7m /~23 feet up/ above the ground , sloping to South-East, with tuner - works almost everywhere.


Wire Moxon for 20m at 3,5m /~11.5 feet/ above the ground, beaming to North-West / from EU this is direction to USA/ - it wasn't working very well due to the low hight, but was still usable.


The following pictures are from garden in Brno winter, 2010:



The delta loop for 40m can be hardly seen on these pictures, but Moxon could be recognized behind the tree /2 white wires, first picture/.




04-07 July.2011 I was in Hungary in Heviz, Nr Balaton lake. I was using home made GP made by fiberglass mast, 10m / ~32.8feet /long wire as director and 4 radials, 5 meters /16.4 feet or 1/8 lamda for 40m/ each.

Thanks for contacts.




















Here are some pictures from the hotel:

The GP could be seen on last picture in full size on the left.


November.2011, during CQ WW CW Contest we were in Chotikov, Czech Republic, small vllage near German border and

I build a full size vertical with 12,5m fiberglass mast and 8 elevated full size radials and an inverted Vee antenna, which allow me to

increase my resault in the contest:


23.June - 30.June 2012 was active from JN11IP like EA3/LZ3SF mainly on 6m with home made dipole on the balcony of the hotel.

Tnaks for contacts.




















25.Aug.2012 - 08.Sept.2012, 24Aug-08.Sept.2013

The pictures bellow are from my home town - Petrich, Bulgaria QRA Loc: KN11OJ

The Vertical is home made with 12,5m fiberglass mast, full size on 40m, with 12 elevated radials on top of the roof on 8 floor's building /28m up/ and ICOM IC-7000

/the pictures are from 2012, when the radials were less/


All the best to everybody,

Looking to hear you soon on the bends,

73! de LZ3SF
