Ham since 1985.
Worked radio quite a lot during end of 80's and then a long break for career, family and other things. Decided 2010 to become active again and also decided to start a blogg about my return to the hobby. A lot fo things has happened during the last 20-25 years. I also decided to write the blogg in Swedish in order to promote the hobby to a wider local audience. Sorry for you internationals, but I'm sure that some of the pictures talk for themselves. And Google translate could do the rest of the job.
Today my focus is to have as good antennas as possible at my home QTH. So a lot of time has gone to mast and antenna related work. Also, I have focused on balanced system engineering for my system, ie. most bang for the buck.
Now most of the antenna work is done, so now I'm focusing on the radios and computer integration. High power will come last.
I don't have any preferences regarding radios. If it works for me, it's good enough. Therefore I have today a Elecraft K3, Kenwood TS-2000, and ICOM and Yeasu handhelds.
Regarding antennas, I like Yagi antennas and horizontal loops. Have experimented with off center fed dipoles and other dipoles. Workable, but not optimal at my QTH.
