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.
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 a QRP TX attenuator which can bring my Yaesu FT 9000 from 5Watts down to just 5mWatts in7 steps. (500mW, 250mW,100mW, 50mW, 25mW, 10mW and 5mW)) 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.
CW is a very slow work in progress even when I am using the computer to help me !
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 5000A 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, but I normally use it for working satellites when they are close enough to my QTH. The Flex-5000A will be mostly used for digital modes as soon as I get better at using the computer!
My antennas are an Optibeam OB9-5 and an Optibeam OB1-40mounted 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.
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.
