Thank you for looking me up.
I was born in 1947, licensed in 1963.
OY4OO (1970 -1972), when I was radioofficer in NAVAL RADIO Thorshavn (OVL).
OX3OO (1974-1976), when I was radiooficer in Weatherstation DANMARKSHAVN (OXQ), a small WX stn. 12 men, many slededogs in POS 7646N 1846W in North East coast of Greenland.

In the photo, I am, with FT 450, running DX in CW on 7.014,00 kc/s.
The screen shows DX CLUSTER and DX ATLAS (grey line).
With 100 watts and inverted W3DZZ, feedpoint up 10 metres, ends up 2.20 metres, I have worked the whole world in 80 metres CW (111 prefixes, including VK and ZL), latest EA9/DL2RNS (27.02.2014)
3 different ZL callsigns in 80 metres, latest ZL3XDJ.
4 qso´s with Sava//VK4PN in 80 metres, Sava uses like me, 100 watts and wireant.
In 7 mc/s, I have worked 189 prefixes (26.02.2014), from Antarctic (RI1ANC, RI1ANF and RI1ANR) to Franz Josef Land (RI1FJA). Latest VP9/G7VJR Bermuda.
In 7 mc/s, within 33 days, I worked all prefixes in South America.
From November 2009 until June 2010, I used DRAKE TR7, with that stn. I ran my 2 first DX prefixes in 80 metres CW, VQ9LA and KH2/N2NL.
After DRAKE TR7, I first used FT 450, then FT 450 D, in the Autumn of 2012 FT 950, then in few month FT 1000 MARK V FIELD, now FT 2000, but still only 100 watts.
Since I, in November 2009, started up again, I have, in 80 metres, in 40 metres and in 30 metres included, worked 278 prefixes, 26.02.2014 EA9/DL2RNS CEUTA & Mellia in 80 metres.
All my qso´s are made by 100 watts and inverted dipole (W3DZZ).
No fancy ant. systems, only the good old dipole (W3DZZ) 80 metres and 40 metres, in 30 metres, ordinary 1/2 wave dipole - both inverted, same feed point.
It is a succes to be close to the water, I am, look at the photo.
I wish u all, the best DX in real CW, and good luck.
In my CW work, NO PC systems are involved.
A good RX, x - tal filter as well as good working DSP, headphones (good ears) and a Vibroplex, that´s CW.
C U in CW .
