I been involved with all kind of electronics since late 1960's. Radio communication equipment always been my big love.
Since January 16'th 2012, I been quite active on satellites, as they are nice challenge with normal working.
At February 21'st 2013, I had qso with K4FEG on AO-07 satellite and we made apparently world's second longest qso via it. 7853 km.
Extra long qso was repeated at May 15'th 2013 with K4FEG. So the first qso wasnt about of pure luck, but with lots of work as well.
At March 14'th 2013, I got my 1000'th satellite qso ( With RA1AKR )
I got my very first qso to Alaska, at May 13, with KL7R via FO-29.
I have 40W for 70cm with 10el yagi and I may use up to 150W at 2m with 15el yagi. Unfortunately I dont have a tilt system, so my possibilities are a bit limited, but for long path qsos my systems seems to be good.
If you wish to have a try for such satellite qso, please send email to me and we see what we can do for it!
After the 6m band opens, I very likely will be found from there at SSB area of the band. Give a call, and I'll be there with you.
July 1st 2012, I got up new 5 element yagi for 6m band, so lets see if that improves anything for me. At least it sure looks awesome on the roof.
