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 in English John. I'm located in Åre, a skiresort, 700 km north of country capitol Stockholm and only appr. 60 km east of the Norwegian border. On the mountain side, 520 m above sea level, it's ideal for radio operation.
QSL info: I'm not a collector of paper QSL cards and strongly encourage everyone to start using modern electronic QSL systems instead. Please stop sending me QSL cards I haven't asked for! I'm not a member of the bureau and cards received to Sweden will be returned and not delivered to me.
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 postal rates and a direct card will from January 2015 cost 2,50 Euro (expensive? well, it barely cover my cost).
Last QSO's from my main log (Thnx to HRD and HRD logg)
My LOTW statistics (confirmed/worked): All band DXCC: 130/163. 5 band DXCC (80/40/20/15/10m): 45/69/77/88/83. WARC band (17/12m) DXCC: 45/18. All band WAS: 38/50, All band WPX: 991 All band Challenge: 426

SE3X Future Set-Up
Re-building and developing ones station is a natural process, and I'm no exception.
This summer antenna projects, not super antennas, but as good as I can make with my resources at my QTH. This is what I hope to achive and build the coming 6 months:
Will need to buy some stuff to make this happens. Except all small bits and pieces, these are the main purchases:
Would like to go towards SO2R contesting, this might be the future SE3X station. A very simple SO2R set-up with a second radio, a multiband OCF antenna and maybe a microHAM u2r controler. Tons of money to invest, probably not gonna happen in a while ... But dreams are allowed!
73 - Thanks for reading all the way down, have Fun and Enjoy the hobby!
