Licensed in September 1965 and now retired from a long working life servicing all types of radio communication equipment.
I'm mostly QRV on the HF bands with SSB and many digital modes.
The nearest city is Koege, approx. 30 km south of Copenhagen.
I live in a restricted area, so my antennas are only about 7 meters up. Not good enough, but the best I can do.
On HF: Kenwood TS-950SDX and Expert 1K-FA PA.The antennas are a Butternut 10 band vertical, a Mosley TA-63-N 6 band beam and a multi-band dipole. A Kenwood TS-850S with a TCXO is installed as a second transceiver.
A Heil Pro headset with the HC-4 microphone improves the intelligence of my voice tenfold.
For 6m I use a Kenwood TS-60 all mode transceiver and either a vertical or the Mosley beam. If using the beam the Expert 1K PA is used and the output power is in this case around 200 W.
On 2m and 70cm: I'm using an Icom IC-910 dual band all mode transceiver improved with a TCXO. My antenna for 2m is a 9 elem yagi and on 70 cm a 19 elem. yagi. On 2m I'm using a Gemini 2 300W PA.
I also use a Yaesu FT-8000 mostly for APRS.
On digital modes I'm using a PC with the following programs:
Winwarbler from DX-Lab, JT65-HF, Fldigi, Multipsk, MMSSTV, MMTTY, WSJT10, WSJT-X, N1MM logger, fdmdv and the multimode TNC SCS PTC-IIpro.
In addition I can work Clover using my retired computer.
When using the JT-modes I'm running max. 100 W into the vertical or the beam.
All parts of my HAM stationis are controlled individually, but I can also have my computer control the whole station. The SW core is the DX-Lab suite of programs, which are very useful both during the daily work and if I quickly want to work a contest. All information is just a mouse-click away, if not served for me immediately. And because DX-Lab can interface to all the popular HAM radio programs, no matter what mode I use, I have maximum support from the suite.
DX-lab contain the following programs:
Launcher: automatically launches selected DX-lab programs, Commander: controls the radios, DX Keeper: a comprenhesive logging program, DX View: showing all information on a DXCC country, Path Finder: searching QSL info on the internet, Propview: show propagation info, Spot Collector: as the name says, collects spots from several on-line sources in addition to VHF/UHF clusters and WinWarbler: PSK (3 channels) and RTTY communication.
Paper QSLs are very much appreciated (they can be used for awards) and all QSOs are confirmed with a QSL card. Upload to Club-Log is automatically taken care of by DX-Lab and I often upload all QSOs to e-QSL and LotW. So QSO confirmations are waiting for you in Cyberspace and if missed, they will come to you via old fasion paper (Gutenberg did not live in vain).
I reply to all SWL QSL as soon as possible.
I'm collecting old radio literature, both books and magazines. Books about radio techniques and radio magazines from all over the world. You can read more about my collection on my web page http://oz6gh.byethost33.com.
Since 1962 I have been a member of the Danish amateur radio organization 'EDR' and for many years member of the local HAM radio club in Roskilde, primarly a field-day club.
