Operating from JO70VA

History:
Born 1945. HAM since 1959 (SWL and club stn operator). Licensed since Mar 1, 1967 as OK1ATB 1967-1979, OK1DIS 1979-1989, OK1ATB again 1989-1998, OK1ZF 1998 - 2004, OK1NE 2005 - till now. From March 1st to 31st, 2008 a call OL1ATB was used in parallel with OK1NE to remember my first callsign OK1ATB.

Equipment:
FLEX-3000, IC-7000 (especially for 6m, 2m and 70cm and for SSB), AL-811XCE, home-brew ant tuner. Logging software: Logger32 and N1MM. Note: Regrettably, the AL811XCE is now waiting for its guarantee repair with its burnt transformer.

My IC-775DSP and ZZ-1200 retired. For very long time, the IC-775DSP was the best CW gear I knew. The year 2012 gave me enough time to find the FLEX-3000 is even better for CW and very good for SSB reception (anyway I prefer CW). The ZZ-1200 amplifier was too big for me. It can produce up to 1500 W what cannot be used in my location so it was replaced by the Ameritron AL-811XCE, its 400 to 600 W is adequate for my location. See note above.

September 2013: The last equipment I purchased is the ELO ET1747L touchmonitor as a control device for my FLEX-3000 so now I am training how to use it. I am a right-handed person but the monitor must stay on my left side so I must get up how to operate it by my left handsmiley. Really it was easier to learn to operate my paddle with my left hand than to aim to the buttons on the screen.

I terminated my usage of the YPlog by Tony, VE6YP. The reason is that the FLEX-3000 has a Kenwood-like interface and the YPlog does not understand it well.

Antennas:

  • 2x33 m ("Dual Zepp") - almost for 160, 80, 40, and 30m
  • ZY-33 tribander
  • GP-7DX vertical (for the 7 bands from 40 to 10m)
  • 4 el Yagi for 6m
  • 5/7 el Yagi for 2m/70cm
  • vertical for 2m/70cm ("the white stick")

There are living 6 people, 2 dogs, 5 cats, and 1 HAM in the house.

Operation:
I prefer CW operation, especially I like the CW contesting. Now at my old age I am learning the SSB also. I also tried various digital modes and SSTV but I did not found it much interesting for me.

Contest administration:
I manage the monthly repeated CW and SSB "Activity 160m" for CRC - see more at http://www.a160.net/. I organize and manage the "OK1WC Memorial" to remember all our friends that are gone for ever. The rules are published at http://www.memorial-ok1wc.cz/.

LoTW (ARRL Logbook of The World):
On October 24th, 2012, all existing contacts (since January 1st, 2005) of the OK1NE were upoaded to LoTW. The new contacts will be uploaded there regularly.

eQSL:
All existing contacts of OK1ZF and OL1ATB were uploaded to eQSL. The account of OK1NE is maintained occasionally. Sorry I have no electronic logs of the OK1ATB and OK1DIS.

Paper QSL cards:
I'm answering via bureau all paper QSL cards that were received via bureau. My problem is that sometimes I do it very late.
I'm answering direct all direct received QSL cards that were accompanied with nearly sufficient return postage.
