QRP only station - every QSL appreciated
I have been started with ham radio since 1965 in radio club OK1KRI. I got a special license OL1AED for young people between 15-18. All equipment (RX, TX, ANT) was home brew based on tubes.
In early 90-s I purchased second-hand TS-130V and continued QRP work mostly on CW. With power of 1W and less I achieved 200+ DXCC CW confirmed using 2 elements 5 band quad (20-10m) and loop for 40m.
Since 2009 I have been using Elecraft K3 with 5W for all modes and have worked about 270+ DXCC using QRP only. My preferred modes are CW, PSK and JT65. In 2012 I have received both 7-band QRP DXCC and 7-band WAC awards and early 2015 even 8-band QRP DXCC (#2 from ARCI) and 8-band WAC (#1 from ARCI).
I am also co-founder of OK-QRP-C #006.
Except QRP on HF I am interesting in satellite communication using FT-736R for 2m/70cm. I work via both linear and FM amateur satellites with home brew Yagi antennas, AZ-EL system made from modified TV rotors and home brew control via RS232 interface.
