I am a skilled radio- and TV technician (1965), I am a Master of Science in electronics and telecom (1969). For some years I worked as a senior teacher at Odense Teknikum (now the Southern Danish University), and for many years I worked as a freelance photographer and technical journalist travelling in many countries.
I retired in February 2011, and moved to Langeland, a small island with a population of 12000 located close to Germany in South Denmark. Langeland (in English Long Island) is 52 km long and 6 km (on average) wide.
I got my certificate as a ham radio operator in 1978, class A, OZ8ZY, but due to too much work I soon after gave it up. In 2006 I took up this wonderful hobby again, now as 5P8ZY, and I enjoy it very much. I am QRV on the 40, 30, 20, 17, 15, 12, 10, and 6 metre bands, mainly phone, and on the 2 metre and 70 cm bands, FM and SSB.
I very much like to talk to friends all over the world, contesting is not me! From January 24th 2012 I am OV6A.
In the shack you will find a Kenwood TS 990, an ICOM IC-910H, and a Yaesu FT1000MP MkV Field transceiver. You will also find an EXPERT 1K-FA solid state linear power amplifier and different auxiliary equipment. I control the transceivers and the AlfaSpid rotator from the Ham Radio Deluxe programme, where the logbook is integrated.
My garden is big enough for some effective antennas: A 3E SteppIR beam (13 metre up), a 40 meter 4-wire dipole (feedpoint 11 meter up), a 40 metre sloper (groundplane), a 2 meter quad, a 70 cm quad, and a 2 m/70 cm vertical.
I do not collect QSL cards, but I accept cards sent direct (3 GS or 1 IRC, addressed envelope) and give a receipt for them. I do not reply to QSL cards without 3 GS or 1 IRC, sorry. I upload all QSOs to LoTW but not to eQSL. I am not a member of the QSL bureau, so if you send me a card via the bureau, I will never receive it.
Other hobbies: Family history, bicycling, and travelling with my girlfriend.
