Hi all,

thanks for visiting my info-page :-)

 

My name is ERIC, born 1958 in vienna/austria.

I am ham-op. since the springtime of 1978 and i am a (lucky ?) single-man during the most times of my life.

I'm just a lonely boy - we remember this song !

I am/was a technician for radio and television and also for cb-ham-radios until 1990.

After this time i was a technician for meteorological remote sense at the austrian central meteorological institute; named ZAMG (http://www.zamg.ac.at/weather/index.php).

Because i was very sick for longer than 1 year i am retired now and a (lucky ?) pensioner :-) since end of summer of 2008.

I love the music of the 70s and the girls and womens born in this beautiful time. 

I love the cw-mode AND qrp since i was watching the tv in the time i was a littel boy and there was running a documentation of the Kontiki-Expedition in 1947.

On the 5th of August in 1947 Knut Haugland makes a cw-call with about 7watts or so from the pacific area to norway.

I love the cw-mode and i am the happiest man of the world if i can hear or operate a QRP-DX-Station whose operating with a simple antenna, like long-wire or dipole or so and whose located at a far away island.

My favorite island is the Ahunui-Atoll located in the south pacific about 1500 km south-east of Tahiti.

One of my dream is to make a special QRP-DX-Expedition to this small island.

Not a complex and expensive dx-equipment - a homemade qrp-transceiver and a simple long-wire or a dipole and NORMAL QSOs (not 59, 73 and bye thousands of times) - thats all.

CW is beautiful - no noise, no whistle, no squeal when i turn on the 250Hz-filter.

There are times where i was working cw during listen to radio or watching the tv !

Since (April 2010) i have a new QTH i am operating via the I-nternet R-emote B-ase - Stations only because its very difficult to get a licence for mounting a antenna (at the roof).

I will test to mount a inverted-v (2 x 27 meters) from my windows (i am living at 10th floor) to the ground during the summer of 2010 and then i will see what the industrial noise-level :-( is here - in the central part of the town and a few meters away the street and the city lights.

Will also test what the other peoples says, when 2 wires are there if they take a look out of their windows !

I hope the best !

If the inverted-v-project fails then i will test to working with an indoor-dipole (2 x 5 meters or so); a "no chance to any dx"- periode will then follow; i am knowing that; but its better to work one hop only than never and the IRBs are a compromise only because to many other OMs will working also.

Ok, 73 and good dx ERIC
