Picture above is from 3D2A / 3D2DX trip in 2011, mounting the 5 band Spiderbeam in Nadi, Viti Levu.
Born in the summer of 1964. Licensed since 1982 - same callsign, no funny ones up the slieve.
Grown up in the very south-western part of the country. Soenderjylland - and proud of it! Second language is German, and Nordfriesich.
I regulary upload to eQSL.cc, LOTW and Clublog. So plenty of oportunity to request a QSL card.
As standard I send a QSL card for each first band and mode to all contacts. If you need it faster then the bureau - requst via Clublog and OQRS from here.
When You have worked me, the antenna is the one of our Clubstation. OZ7AMG / OZ7A. I operate from here because I live in the middle of Copenhagen - NO ANTENNAS ...
But this gives our Clubstation some benefits. Someone making sure the station is running. Someone always improving something to make it better for DX and Contesting.
YES! I am a K3 addict. It's the only RIG to my oppinion. Keyer is a homebrew from an old Gunsmith - OZ4IT. Simple but ....
Proud member of TEAM KOP
Since 2013, President of Dansih DX Group (DDXG)
INVOLVMENT IN SPECIAL CALLSIGNS;
OZ1HQ (2009- )
OZ1HQ in 2009 on 40 meter SSB - that was me. Afterwards mostly on 20 meter CW
OZ5MAY (2006 - 2013)
Danish Museum for the resistance during the 2'nd World War.
Unfortunately burned down to the ground by pyromaniac in April 2013 - a few days before the liberation anniversaryday.
Funny isnt it?
OZ1RDN (2003 - )
Sometimes you have to do something for a good course. I sometimes activate the radioroom on one of Denmarks famous Fregates.
HDMS Peder Skram. It's a museum ship open mostly only in the summer time. But it has history. It is famous, and has served well.
I am an old Army Para Grunt - but I like the spirit of these old Sailors. So when ever I can spare the time, I go there and operate and make it alive again - Proud Danish See and Sailor Traditions.
I love those old Sailors - They are GREAT.

2011 - 3D2A and 3D2DX
My first real DXpedition. I had a good teacher in Eddie VK4AN/3D2A.
And I really enjoyed the company of Eddie and Rocky 3D2DD.
Rocky helped us a lot with many things.
2012 - PJ4C with the KOP-guys
My first expirience with DXpeditioning in a big team. And I couldnt have choosen a better group to go with.
The KOP's are a great bunch of guys! Always fun,always a good laugther - but always serious about the radio-part.
Alain made a nice video!
2012 - CU6GRP Pico Island in the All 9 Islands Hunt Event
This was something new! Not entirely a DXpedition, and yet yes it was. The idea was to activate all 9 of the Azores Islands in one instance.
Martti OH2BH and FranciscoCU2DX needed some firm and expirienced participants that could handle the pileup.
Alex OZ7AM and I came to Pico as total strangers, but was well received by Jorge CU6AB and his fellow radioamateurs.
2013 - TX5K Clipperton with the Lagunaria Folks
... to the end of the world, could one say. Clipperton! The magic Island. I don't believe in ghosts, but I must admit that there is something special about this Island. It's like a part of you always will stay there? But an expirience beyond anything, and an adventure of a special kind. Thanks to all the guys who was there too.
Leaving the Island again : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZYMzBvPaL7M
2014 - TO7CC Reunion with the KOP guys
And again I tag' along with the KOP-guys. Many new ones came along this time. And the first day nearly ended in total caos.
We were not allowed to set up antennas at the hotel that was booked for us. But! In the best of KOP style, it was handled and became a good DXpedition. And the new ones was teached the art of DXpeditioning and Pileup handling. Vive Le KOP!
