Hi, Thx for looking me up, SE3X - Sierra Echo 3 X-Ray, Op. Johan!
This is the Contest and DX call for SA3BYC Johan or John. I'm located in Åre, a skiresort, 700 km north of countrys capitol Stockholm and only appr. 60 km east of the Norwegian border.
QSL info: I'm not a collector of paper QSL cards and strongly encourage everyone to stop this waste of paper and trees and use modern electronic QSL systems instead. All my contacts will be confirmed and uploaded to e-Qsl, LoTW , HRD log and Club log on a regular basis. If you are a paper-chaser I will only send paper QSL direct, Pse e-mail me for information! I just received the new postalrates and a direct card will from january 2015 cost 2,50 Euro (expensive? well, it barely cover my cost).
Please stop sending me Qsl cards I haven't asked for! Just received 0.4 kg of unasked for QSL cards and it's such a waste. They end up in a big cardboardbox in the outhouse. Won't send you one in return - I haven't asked for your card!
My last Qso's from my main log (Thnx to HRD and HRD logg)
My LOTW statistics (confirmed/worked): DXCC: 125/159, 5 band DXCC: 42/65/74/83/82, WARC band (12, 17m) DXCC: 17/44, WAS: 38/40, WPX: 948
Kenwood TS-590S, PA Amp Supply LK-450 (3-500Z), LDG-1000 ATU and SWR meter connected via a SPID 8-port antenna switch to my antennas. PC's for logging, digital modes, etc. I have the PC's connected in a schack WLAN with a common back-up harddrive, Internet via mobile connection, no fixed Inet out here, router and firewall. Software used: N1MM for contest, HRD as mainlogg, DX-Atlas etc. Win XP and Win 8 as OS.
Mast 1; wire-antennas: 80/40m dipole on topp, 40/15m wire-vertical and 20m wire-vertical both with elevated radials.
Mast 2; 3 element, tribander short boom Yagi for 10, 15, 20m. Fixed @ 280 degrees until summer 2015 when re-building this mast and changing antenna.
Receive: Have a 80,5m RX loop, horizontal, 3m agl, refered to as my Beverage loop. Works really great compared to listening to the TX antennas.
2015 "to do" list
Stationas: Re-build PA (LK-450) for lower noice and add 2'nd fan for long contest runs. Add Interface for RTTY and digitalmodes. Re-build auto-switching for RX antennas. Add RX antenna switching (KD9SV DXSS DXpedition Receive Antenna Switch).
TX antennas: Re-build antenna system to have 2 fan dipoles: 80/40m (current) and 20/15/10m (new), mainly for EU contesting. Adding 80m vertical with elevated radials for DX and contest outside EU on a separate mast no 3. Would like to add 160m capacity, maybe 160m extension to the 80m vertical or a 10-160m shortened OCF. Adding WARC bands 12m / 17m when exchanging my small 3-band, 3-element beam with a 5-band Hexbeam incl. 12 and 17m.
Receive antennas: 2 new RX antennas summer 2015. Directional East/West and North/South. RX antennas to be switched together with my RX-loop via a homebrew switchbox.
