Thanks for taking the time to have a look at my QRZ page.
I got my category A, (full), licence in November 2011 and am mostly interested in HF/6m DX but I also have a lot of fun with satellites on 2m and 70cm and SSTV/ digital modes. I will be QRV on CW as soon as I am happy with my morse sending speed.
Although I have a Yaesu Quadra amplifier, I prefer to work QRP on SSB trying to stay below 1W e.r.p as often as possible. I have 2 QRP TX attenuators , coupled together, which can bring my Yaesu FT 9000 from 5Watts down to just 50microWatts in a sequence of steps. If you have a QSO with me I will give my Rf pwr in watts radiated by the antenna, (e.r.p.) I do not send false reports so do not be surised if I am using just a few hundred milliwatts!!! The attenutor was built by Spectrumcomms.co.uk and it is a fantastic addition to the shack.
My QTH is on the south west coast of Denmark, just 2km from the sea and only 6 meters above sea level. As the land is flat all around, my antennas have a view of the horizon in all directions. Locator is JO44IX
My working conditions are a Yaesu FTdx 9000D,a Flex-6500, a Yaesu FT-847 and a Yaesu FT-817.
I normally use the Ft-9000 for everyday QSOs and sometimes go QRO for those hard to get DXpeditions, the little FT-817 is great for working QRP from my garden when the sun shines and during the winter months I have it set up where I can use it while I warm my feet in front of a wood burning stove. Normally I use the FT-847 for satellite QSO's.The Flex-6500 is only used for SSTV and digital QSOs running HRD software.
My antennas are an Optibeam OB9-5 mounted on an 18 meter tower with a Diamond V-2000 vertical colinear for 6m. I use a13 element yagi for 2m satellite work and a 19 element crossed yagi for 70cm, an Icom AH-7000 discone for VHF/UHF reception and a Ciro Mazzoni 2meter vertical loop for 80-20m. Also a diamond WD330 folded dipole 25m long,(80m-10m), and 5 element yagi for 4m. Hopefully I will soon be QRV with antennas for 2m EME.
I prefer to QSL via the Danish bureau, the address is: EDR, Klokkestøbervej 11, 5230, Odense M, Denmark.
I will reply direct to any QSL's sent by SWL's. No S.A.E. money or I.R.C.s needed,(SINPO reports if possible). Sorry to say I do not send eQSLs, but I will confirm any eQSLs sent to me at e-qsl.cc. I no longer have my home address posted on QRZ.com but the area given under my callsign at the top of this page has been used to mail direct and it works, but maybe not every time!
I am a member of the Danish Short Wave Club International, Experimenterende Danske Radioamatører, AMSAT and The Radio Society of Great Britain.
I also participate in the Worked All Britain awards scheme and my book number is 19371.
Ps, The photos below are more than a year old and not how my shack looks now, I hope to update the photos of my QTH as soon as possible.
