Unfortunately I'm mainly QRT till September - if nothing positive happen earlier.
See end of this text. ( down... )
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.
I had first qso with ISS ( PI9ISS ) at April 22 2012 with Mr. Andre Kuipers
At February 21'st 2013, I had qso with K4FEG on AO-07 (mode-b) 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. To proof that the first qso wasnt about of pure luck, we tried hard for second qso and made it. So - having difficult qsos, theres a need of some luck but needs 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.
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! You find my email above my biography tab on this page. I seem to have good setup for long path qso's.
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.
After years wait at July 4'th 2014, I manage to have my all times first Japanese qso; JA4DND, 50.130Mhz.
Domo Arigato Hiromi san.
I was gently forced to install monoband dipole at the beginning of December 2014. My first HF qso was Dec. 6 2014 with FG4NN.
This building where I live is having new roof and renovation works force me to remove my antennas at February 14'th. Works being said to take 110 days - of course working days, and works are expected to be done at the end of August!
Talks about" Radio blackout's" may not mean just this.. But if you look this, as you havent heard me on satellites or other bands - This is the reason.
At April 14'th, I was Ulnaris nerve pinch release surgery, so recovering of that causes some problems too.
Surgery is said of gone well.... You know how doctors go: "All went fine, patient didnt die at surgery"
Email works with me.
