Member of ÖVSV and following Telegraphy (CW) Clubs. . .CTC 676 , AGCW 1122 , HSC 1027, VHSC 103 , SHSC 57 , EHSC 86 . . . for further info abt the membership rules , please join the WEB.
QRV since 1974 - mostly CW - at that time I`ve worked under the callsign of a very good friend of mine , CW of course. . .
Got my own Radio Licence 1977, in the magic age of seventeen. . .
QTH locator : JN68SK ADR: Mario Marian Subota , Brauchsdorf 14, A - 4775 Taufkirchen / Pram AUSTRIA Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you hear me running QRPP : I´m never using more than100 mW! I check the feedbacks with the Reverse Beacon Network Tool , it´s Amazing how fare sometimes the signals can be heared - TRY Reverse Beacon Network - Details in the WEB !
Currently using Antenna : Delta Loop 3 x 85m ( Triangle Shape ) up 34mtrs in tall Pine - Trees, feeding in the Corner with a LADDER LINE - 450 OHM´s Impedance. Antenna works from160m - 6mtrs, with good results , made of 4mm Aluminium Aloy Wire (non - insulated) - Calculated and Designed with MMANA Antenna Software Program. Aligned to have the best gain into UK - USA etc.
Other Delta or Quad Loops at lower height for EU traffic.
Currently used Radios:
FLEX 5000A with 2nd Receiver - it seems that the time is over for Radios with scratching knobs !
ELECRAFT K3 with P3 Panadapter - fine Radio too ! ( the best performer for CW - of that there is no doubt !)
KENWOOD TS 590 ( very equal to the K3 , checked and measured in CW ! ) you can´t go wrong with this Radio
YAESU FT dx 5000 MP, latest Toy on the work bench.Hi
SPE Expert 2K FA - my favorite AMPLIFIER, probably the best Solid State Amp - it´s more than amazing how good it works !
OM3500 HF, ACOM 1000A , DRAKE L 7, Collins 30L1 and 30S1 and Ten Tec HERCULES.
Also ancient Radios from my collection - I let them glow from time to time.
Morse Key: Single Paddle from " SCHEUNEMANN " made in Germany , one of the Best - if not the Best! And a "Begali HST", I´m coming back to the roots. . . back from twin paddle to single paddle. You know - one lever instead of two can reduce QSD. "Two Paddles" gives two times more possibilities for QSD. . hihi. ., that´s my opinion - check it out ! ! The only exception of this (my) rule is the "Morse Dirigent" twin Paddle from "Scheunemann" , believed or not! BEST TWIN PADDLE for QRQ/Q, no one else comes close to it !!
All my Antennas supported by tall spruce , maple, linden and fir trees, even huge oaks !
I`m using Helium Balloons to bring the ropes over the trees. . .much easier than to use slingshot or bow and arrow. . .!
Reaching here antenna heights up to 36m or 120 ft, feeding all antennas with a homemade ladder line, abt 500 Ohms - going straight into a balanced ATU - works well on all Bands !
QTH here is on a Hill top , 450m asl (above sea level) a small Farm with an antenna playing field of 10 Hectare or 20 Acres ,15km SE from the German / Austrian borderline.
All my Antennas designed and calculated with an Antenna Software Program , its very helpful to know what they doing , even on higher frequencies. Also very important to know, how the radiation take off angle and the main and side lobes looks like !
I do highly recommand to invest a couple of hours to learn how to use an Antenna Modeling Software like EZNEC , MMANA , 4NEC2 etc. It truly will helps you to optimize your Antennas !
Without the help of an Antenna Simulation Software , I would walk around like a blind man. . .Hi.hi
WARNING: Designing Antennas with PC - Software can cause to a dangerously addiction , side effects include extreme happiness , increased brain cells activity and a lot of " aha " lines !
After all - see a good CW demonstration with a Vibroplex Bug , by G0VQW - shown in YOU TUBE , search under G0VQW or OE5MSM
It´s a matter of fact - CW is more than a medicine for the grey cells , it even will keeps you away from other Drugs - because CW itself is the ultimate healthiest Drug. . . .
And to be honest , I have never heard from REAL CW -MAN´s who was in trouble with Dr. Alzheimer. . . do not hesitate , come on and tantalize your brain. . Hi. . .Hi
Play that Music Instrument as much as possible ! !
This is a wonderfull and unique hobby we all share , and I look forward to seeing you on the Bands.
I do apologize for my english mistakes , it´s not my native language - I´m trying to improve it every day a little bit more , our hobby and " rag chewing " really helps a lot !
Be mercy and patience with your brothers alone the road , that God that made you made them too. . .
STAY TUNED !
