First of all: I became member of EDR in 1972.
I am also member of Birkeroed Amateur Radio Club OZ5BIR.
I got my amateur radio license category "B" in 1972
and "A" category in 1973.
During the summer periods, I do have a weekly watch on a museum ship the frigate Peder Skrams
Radio Shack. The frigates radio equipments are from the 1960s. The radio equipment still functions,
today as an amateur radio station OZ1RDN. You are most welcome on board and pass the Radio
shack for an eye ball QSO about the good old days, when practically all radio communications
took place via the CW key and ofcourse some very good operators.
The frigate is currently berthed at the Navy Base "Nyholm", Copenhagen
I prefer absolutely to exchange QSL via E-QSL or LOTW.
Amateur Radio sure is GREAT plessure.
Thanks for our QSO and for looking me up on QRZ.COM.
I hope we may have CW QSO again on the HF bands.
My working conditions are as follows: Elecraft K3, 100W
Antenna setup for the time being; a vertical multiband loop (30-10m) and a horizontal loop (80-10m),
can be a real good combination for diversity operationerations especially on the top bands.
April 5th 2012 I got my 2 elm. 3 bander GEM QUAD mounted
atop of my 10m high tower, some adjustemt may still be need.
During the summer of 2013, I also installed the 17m/12 meter bands.
My 5 bands 2 element GEM QUAD operates fairly reasonable on all 5 HF bands
20m - 10m and only feeded through the same 50 ohm coaxcable.
So look forward to work you on this for me nice piece of toys
The Yaesu G-1000DXC is just turning the Quad at your direction for maximum QSA
The black line is my horizontal loop antenna in total circumference 92 meters. The red line is a 450 ohm
open feedline just about 15 meters in length from my differential T antenna tuner at the radio shack. Highest
point in the antenna system is the feed point 12 meters above the ground, or 6 meters above the roof top.
Lowest point of the loop antenna is almost 7 meters above the ground. The loop antenna can easily be tuned
to all bands between 80 and 10 meters. In the winter time I open the loop to 2x40 meters, and the antenna
system becomes almost changed to a dipole antenna, and now I can easily work the 160 meter band.
The disadvantage of this is unfortunately, that the noise level increase some decibels.
I ALWAYS DO OUTMUST TO FOLLOW THE DX CODE OF CONDUCT
I will listen, and listen, and then listen again before calling.
