Hi, Thx for looking me up, SE3X - Sierra Echo 3 X-Ray, Op. Johan!
This is the Contest and DX call for SA3BYC. Located in Åre, a skiresort, 700 km north of countrys capitol Stockholm and only appr. 60 km east of the Norwegian border.
My station consist of a Kenwood TS-590 transceiver, Amp Supply LK-450 PA, 3-el. triband beam and wire antennas on a couple of masts 10-12m in height. Covering 80-10m with my existing antennas. Not really happy with DX performance for 80m, will add vertical in the future. Rotator for the beam will be added summer 2015. Long term goal to add auto switching of antennas and SO2R capability, today running SO2V in contest.
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 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).
My last Qso's from my main log
My LOTW statistics DXCC: 123/159 (conf./worked) WAS: 38/40 (conf./worked) WPX: 937 (conf.)
Constantly changing and re-building my antennas :) trying to learn and find the optimal antennas for my Qth and my activities. Going to build up SO2R capacity adding a second TS-590 in the future.
Radio 1, Run radio: with 6x2 auto-switch from SJ2W and an antenna set-up consisting of my 3-el. beam and dipoles for 80-10m. Will have 2 fan dipoles: 80/40m and 20/15/10m, mainly for EU contesting, then 80 and 40m verticals with elevated radials for DX and contesting outside EU.
Have 80,5m loop, horizontal, 3m agl, for RX and will keep it. My RX-loop works really great, will add 2 new RX antennas, directional East/West and North/South. RX antenna switched via a KD9SV switchbox w. Pre-Amp.
May, 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.
A beautiful winterday, december, almost the same spot just outside my Qth, in the background you see a winter pretty Mount Åreskutan.
Autumn at it's peak, september from almost the same spot near my Qth.
