Hello, and thanks for stopping by. I hope we've had a chance to make contact on the air.
I got interested in radio in my teens and I've been an SWL since I was about 15 years old.
(Thanks to ON4CD to indroduce me in the Ham Radio world).
After I learned CW in the army while serving as a radio operator, I got my licence in 1969.
Born in 1947 and active in ham radio since 1969. Retired in 2005 from sugar beet industry.
My main interests in ham radio are :
- mostly CW (85 % of my QSO)
- QRP operation
- contests in CW
- Antenna construction and testing
Currently my main equipment is a Yaesu FT5000MP rig, a micro Keyer 2 and a Begali Stradivarius key.
The logger is DXLab or N1MM during contest.
I also own a Yaesu FT857 (nice rig for /M or /P operation) used for home VHF/UHF trafic
and a FT817 for pedestrian QSO and for the QRP Contest
