Member of ÖVSV and following Telegraphy (CW) Clubs. . . FOC 2038 , HSC 1027, VHSC 103 , SHSC 57 , EHSC 86, CTC 676 , AGCW 1122, SKCC . .
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 from a 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 than 100 mW! I check the feedbacks with the Reverse Beacon Network Tool , it´s amazing how fare sometimes the signals can be heard - 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 Alloy 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 !
Other "AFTERBURNER´s" ( Amps ): OM3500 HF, ACOM 1000A , DRAKE L 7, Collins 30L1, 30S1 and a Ten Tec HERCULES 2 . . .
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. . hi..hi. ., that´s my opinion - check it out ! !
The only exception of this (my) rule is the "Morse Dirigent" twin Paddle from "Scheunemann" , believe it or not - it´s the BEST TWIN PADDLE for QRQ/Q , nothing 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 impedance- 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 how the antenna works, 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 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 never heard from REAL CW -MAN´s that they ever have been in trouble with Dr. Alzheimer. . . do not hesitate , come on and tantalize your brain cells. . Hi. . .Hi. .
" A CW QSO EVERY DAY, KEEPS THE DOCTOR AWAY "
Play that Music Instrument ,as much as possible ! !
This is a wonderful 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 ! The way to the goal is hard , long and stony !
Be mercy and patience with your brothers alone the road , that God that made you made them too. . .
STAY TUNED !
