Hello! and Thanx for coming by looking at my Qrz.com page. Name is John or in Swedish Johan!  Please be patient, more info in English further down the page. Håll ut ... kommer en intro på Svenska också :) I am the same person using the contestcall SE3X if you wonder. 

Jag flyttade 2012, då från Ekerö som SA0BYC,  till Åre i republiken Jemland (hi hi), närmare bestämt i Fröå - ruta JP63OJ.

Åre är som du säkert vet Sveriges bästa skidort och som nu snabbt jobbar på att bli bäst även sommartid. Fantastisk skidåkning, mountainbiking, skärmflygning, forsränning, fjällvandring, hundspann, ja hur mycket som helst att göra både vinter och sommartid.

70 mil norr om Stockholm, bara 7 mil från gränsen till Norge, så finns mitt Qth i Fröå på Åreskutans kant 520 m över havsnivån. Närmsta grannen ca 1 km bort, ingen som bryr sig om vad jag sätter upp i antennväg och mycket låg störningsnivå gör det till lite av ett dröm Qth. Tyvärr har mina antennarrangemang en mycket kraftfull fiende! isbildning och snöpåbyggnad vintertid ... Det plus att det när som helst kan blåsa fan ... häruppe, gör att man inte kan sätta upp vad som helst hur högt som helst. I stort sett är det ändå ett dröm läge för en radioamatör.

Är nog att betrakta som en relativt aktiv radioamatör ;)  Jag kör inte så mycket lokalkontakter, även om det händer, utan är oftare på DX jakt och kör mycket contest. Har ett contest- och DX-call som SE3X och det använder jag uteslutande för det det är avsett för ;)

73 / Johan


 First licensed as SA0BYC, living just outside Sweden capital Stockholm, then 2012 moving north 700 km from Stockholm to the Swedish skiiresort Åre and started using the contest- / DX-call - SE3X. My Swedish licens (CEPT) allows 1 kW legal power, every possibel mode invented, on all hambands. My Qth;  Åre, a skiresort, 700 km north of countrys capitol Stockholm and only appr. 60 km from the Norwegian border offers very good antenna possibilities and a low QRM level.

On the mountain side, 520 m above sea level, it's ideal for radio operation. My only two problems is AC power, max 16A - 230/400V. Have to limit my use of big PA's, then the very strong winds and ice build-up on my antennas in the winter. I have to limit antenna mast height and prefer that to have my antennas low and always in the air - instead of on the ground after one of our frequent winter storms.


Station:  TRX 1 - YAESU FT-950,  TRX 2 - Kenwood TS-570D.  RM HLA 300+ PA, LDG AT-1000, Ps from MAAS and Kenwood, headsets from W2ENY and Heil. Software: HRD for rigcontrol and main log, N1MM Plus and Log4U for contest logging. Homebrew manual switch matrix for TRX and Antenna selection.

Mast 1 (10.5m / 35 feet):  80/40mb Inv-V.   40/15mb wire L-Vertical with elevated radials: 4@40mb and 2@15mb.   20mb wire L-Vertical with 3 elevated radials.

Mast 2 (9m / 30 feet):  3-el beam, 10/15/20mb, Vertical Delta Loops for 12 and 17mb and a 2m/70cm Slim Jim for local contacts.

Other / RX-antenna:  Horizontal loop; 80,5m long, coax feed with 4:1 balun, 3-4m agl, tunes on 80-6mb. Used as Back-Up, NVIS and as RX-antenn. Works a treat for RX on 80/40 and sometimes on 20/15m - I refer to it as my Beverage loop.


 QSL Policy: I'm not a collector of paper QSL cards. Instead all contacts will be confirmed with e-Qsl and uploaded to LoTWI will only send paper QSL direct. Please! before doing anything, send me an e-mail for details and postage. Pse note; from 2015 I will no longer be a member of the bureau system and your sent cards will probably just be returned. 


My last 30 Qso's - ragchew, DX and other non Contest Qso from my main log; Ham Radio DeLuxe.

LOTW: During my activities I have worked some countries, states and prefixes, good fun it is!  DXCC: 159 / 120 (worked/confirmed), WAS: 38 (confirmed), WPX: 866 (confirmed).


 

May 26 - 2013, springtime in the mountains and time for the reindears to move betwen low- and highland. Picture taken just outside my Qth. In the background you see Mount Åreskutan, 1440 m. Thanks to "her" I am somewhat limited West-bound appr. 310-320 degree W. But I have worked W/VE 6 and 7's on 10 - 20m, guess my problem on 80m and 40m is more because poor DX antennas. Hope new antennas with lower radiation angle will improve that.

A beautiful winterday, december 15 - 2013, almost the same spot just outside my Qth, in the background you see a winter pretty Mount Åreskutan. A winterday like this makes life worth living up here!

Autumn at it's peak, september 19 - 2014, same spot near my Qth, mount Åreskutan still 1440 m. Just finishing my vertical for 40m, hoping to "jump" over "her" this winter.


These are the guidelines for my operation

- I will learn and obey the rules of any contest I enter, including the rules of my entry category and obey the rules for amateur radio in my country.

- I will not modify my log after the contest by using additional data sources to correct callsign/exchange errors.

- I will accept the judging and scoring decisions of the contest sponsor as final.

- I will operate my transmitter with sufficient signal quality to minimize interference to others.

- I will listen, and listen, and then listen again before calling and only call if I can copy the DX station properly.

- I will not interfere with the DX station nor anyone calling and will never tune up on the DX frequency or in the QSX slot

- I will wait for the DX station to end a contact before I call.

- I will call and then listen for a reasonable interval, I will not call continuously.

- I will not transmit when the DX operator calls another call sign, not mine and/or when the DX operator queries a call sign not like mine.

- I will not transmit when the DX station requests geographic areas or callsign numbers other than mine.

- When the DX operator calls me, I will not repeat my call sign unless I think he has copied it incorrectly.

- I will respect my fellow hams and conduct myself so as to earn their respect.
