I`ve got started with novice license EZ6HDX (160 m AM mode 10 wt) in 1981 when I was 16. Hardly experimented with different low suspended LW`s and short verticals, but no successful, cause I think of too low power.Three years later I`ve got new one license RA6HDX which allowed to operate on 10 m. Then after 5 years paused my RA6HDX was closed and I`ve got UW6HFZ . Two years later when USSR was reunited prefix changed to RW6HFZ. In 1996 I`ve got a new one first class licensed RZ6FL. In 2013 on april I`ve got four symboled R7FL and I hope it will be last one, cause I`m very tyred of these changes indeed.
Right now, I`m using IC 756 proIII with homemade PA on metaloceramic tube GU-74B about 600 watts output.
Antenna for low bands 160, 80, 40 m is horisontal LW about 135 m long and 30 m above the ground, between two 9-floor buildings direction to Pacific. Here is center of the city and level of noise is very high. It`s really a big problem indeed to catch any weak station in these conditions.
For 15-17-20-30-40 m I`m using 5-band vertical with traps by DL2KQ located on the roof my 9-floor house, which is also very noisy, especially on 7 mc in the night, when lamps and other electronics on the streets are on.
I like chasing DX and looking forward to 5BDXCC award using LOTW. So I will be very pleased to receive your LOTW confirmation as fast as possible. I suppose, it`s not good to make QSO and wait confirmation for half or even one year. Is it too difficult to click mouse button to upload your QSO`s which are waiting by anyone and impotant for them? Up to me I upload after 10-20 QSO passed or after ending of contests.
