My name is Björn Jurgen Pasteuning. QTH: Avenhorn JO22LO(49IN)
(about 40km north of Amsterdam)
Ham callsign: PD5DJ (Novice)
Homebrewing and DX'ing / Contesting / Satellites / (QRP) on 40m, 20m, 10m and 2m, 70cm
My stations consists of the following equipment:
For HF i primarily use the ICOM IC-756PROIII,
For Satellites I use the Yaesu FT-847 and have Kenwood TS-2000 as backup.
For portable i am using the TS-2000, and QRP FT-817
Im also into doing portable satellite activties. for that I am using a Twin FT-817 setup, with a Lightweight PVC Duoband Yagi,
6 elements yagi for 2m DX
End Fed antenna 10/20/40m
2x 10 elements 70cm Crossyagi
5 elemtens 2m yagi (will soon been 2x5 elements)
HF: End Fed antenna 10/20/40m
Satellite: Lightweight duoband yagi in X, 7 el on 2m, and 9 elements on 70cm
73' Björn PD5DJ
QSL via Bureau, Direct is also possible please use a SAE! otherwise QSL will be returned via Bureau.
Some projects I made in the past:
Digital Rotator Interface
A totally new design for my new Satellite station.
I wanted to have a KISS system that does just thing it has to do, keep tracking satellites nothing more nothing less.
So I decided to design a new Interface. The design is based on the trusty Kenpro's and Yaesu AC Rotators.
Switching is done by very robust SolidState Relais that can handle up to 16A. So no more stuck relais!
I have used these SSR's for more then a decade in these applications and they never failed me.
The Interface is fully compatible with the common Yaesu command set, compatible with widely availabe rotator/tracking software such as Ham Radio Deluxe, SatPC32 etc etc.
The connection to the PC is done via a onboard Serial to USB connection.
It can be used in 2 modes Manual and Preset/Remote mode
Calibration of the rotators is super simple via a very clear Calibration menu controller via the front panel.
Also the calibration can be done via a extended command set added to the Yaesu command set., done via a Terminal emulator, like Putty etc
Example of my finished controller
USB Audio / CAT / Keyer Rig Interface
I was tired of all those interfaces that could no do what i wanted it do be doing, so i made my own interface.
It consists of internal Soundcard, 3 USB-Serial ports for keying.
With simple internal wire jumpers you can select wich port has to do what no fuzzy configuration software
Also this interface is fully compatible with W7 and up, and linux both NO DRIVERS NEEDED! ;-)
ICOM IC-756 Internal voicekey controller.
Same principle as the VOC-2000 controller
Ro-Thor Graphical Antenna Azimuth and Elevation Rotator controller, compatible with Yaesu GS232 A and B protocol.
Can even be wirelesly controlled via the designed Ro-Mote.
Controller is based on a Atmel ATMega128 microcontroller.
Specially designed for Satellite/EME/Meteoscatter.
Ro-Mote, controller designed for controller the Ro-Thor Antenna rotator controller up to 1km.
Digital Rotator controller, my first designed antenna rotator controller based on a Microchip PIC16F877 microcontroller.
Compatible with Yaesu GS232 A and B protocol.
VOC-2000, Internal voice keyer controller for FT-2000 very usefull for contesting emulates FH-2 Keypad controls and reads status of the Yaesu FT-2000.
Big VNA, Redesigned Antenna analyzer 0-60Mhz upgraded to a 240x128 Graphical LCD Project done with Jarek SP2SWJ.
Digital Power and SWR meter based on Atmega32 microcontroller
