QSL image for SM5RVH

Hi!

*** Update 28 June 2014 ***

I had my license in 1986 and been active since then without any significant "dropouts".

"D-star" - or DV - with a highpower DV Hotspot is active on 70 cm UHF (SG5RVH B ) on 434,4875 MHz (New QRG). The HotSpot is normally connected to the reflector  DCS010 B. I;m also using DV mobile and portable (You can see my GPS position from my ID-31E and SM5RVH-5  on the APRS-map).

I;m active on APRS (SM5RVH-3 = Fill-in Digi (software AGWUIdigi)) ,SM5RVH-7, SM5RVH-9, SM5RVH-12 = mobile/portable equipment and SM5RVH-13 = weather station). the weatherstation is unavailable for the moment.

I have a APRS PCSat/ISS (International Space Station) Gate (SM5RVH-6 ) - from local frequency 144,800 MHz to 145,825 MHz (and vice versa). If you use RS0ISS, SGATE or W3ADO-1 in your path - on local frequency (and you are in the coverage of my gate) - then you will be "gated" to the PCSat/ISS-frequency.

There's also a gateway between 30 m HF APRS (300 baud AX25) (my dial is set to 10.1471 MHz USB when using AEA PK900 as modem) to 144,800 MHz. When using GATE in the path on 2 meter or 30 meter you will be gated to the opposite band. The callsign for this gate is SM5RVH-2

SM5RVH (-1) is active as a TCP/IP Igate and sends every recieved info from 144,800 MHz, 145,825 MHz and 10,147 MHz in to the APRS IS-net.

I;m running an EchoLink gateway - SM5RVH-L, node 839597 on 2 meter (145,450 MHz 103,5 Hz CTCSS).

A Winmor / Pactor 1 & 2 HF-email gateway is active on 80, 40, 30, 20 and 15 meter. See http://www.winlink.org/ for more info. From 1;st of January 2014 my Winlink setup is combined with RMS Relay with new interesting functions using Pactor for transfering messages between node's in the winlink-network without the use of internet (quite like "the old" packet BBS to BBS transfer but in a more sophisticated way - taking into account current propagations etc).

I;m operating a 1200 baud AX-25 Winlink email access-node on 144,925 MHz. Callsign SM5RVH-10.

Note: There are several stations in Sweden active for AX25 Winlink email access and from the end of March we agreed with SSA (Swedish amateur radio society) to make the frequency 144,925 MHz a national activity center for Winlink AX25 1200 baud.

My ALE HFN-Pilotstation is active on all "normal" HFN frequencies.  My ALE-service is unfortunately only on the air occasionally due to low activity in Europe.

I have a local "crosslink" between our local repeater on 145,600 MHz (- 0,6 MHz) and 70 cm (433,5375 MHz, 82,5 Hz CTCSS) and another crossbandrepeater between 145,4500 and 433,0125 MHz (new QRG). CTCSS 103,5 Hz is used on both bands for activating this crossbandrepeater.

>> Everything above is announced on the APRS-network! Zoom in on http://aprs.fi/#!lat=58.70530&lng=16.97000

I will - during this summer (2014) - start up my ATV-equipment on 23-cm. Unfortunately the activity around me on 23-cm is lowcrying so I think I will be completely alone on this band in my area but somebody have to "wake up the band" smiley.

******************************************************************

Mobile HF-activity:

A new car = new antennas = (more (?)) mobile radioactivity. Below you see my new antenna arrangements. It's two 3-banders (2m, 70 and 23 cm) and in the middle of the roofrack there's a connector for an HF-antenna.

I did some APRS-tests a few month ago using an OpenTracker and a GPS-receiver connected to my FT-857. In the test (about 4 weeks long) I was using the 30 meter APRS-frequency. It worked out very well - most of my signals were picked up by severeal "base-stations" in Europe. The next thing to do is to run a mobile gateway - from local frequency 144,800 to 30 meter - for those who's not in VHF coverage of the APRS-infrastructure but in the vicinity of my car ;-)  More about this later on!

******************************************************************

Portable HF-activity:

I like to combine being out in the woods and amateurradio. Therefore my backpack consists of a thermos of coffee, some sandwiches and 7 Ah batterypack, Yaesu FT-817, Z-817 autotuner and a 4,5 meter fibreglass whip mounted on the frame of the backpack (and some cables for "the dragging counterpoise") and of course - a handheld APRS-transceiver!

******************************************************************

At home:

My other equipment at home consists of many coaxcables smiley, a selfsupported 24 meter tower and its "smaller brother" - a 10 meter tower - see pictures below.

This is my 24 meter (approx 80 feet) selfsupported tower including 21000 kg (!) of concrete in the base! Some of the antennas are: Create CLP-5130-2, Cuedee 17 element 70 cm, Tonna 9 element 2 m, Fritzel FB-33 (fixed in 300 degrees), Cushcraft A3WS (fixed in 300 degrees) - incl. 10 MHz, 3 * Icom AH-7000, MFJ-1786, Dressler ARA-2000 etc. A Tennadyne T-10 is waiting to be applied on the top of the tower on a Daiwa MR-750 (3 motor) rotator. One of the antennas in the big tower is a vertical 6 element 2 meter Yagi. It's connected to my APRS ISS / PCSat Gate!

 

This is my small selfsupported tower (10 meters high)! From the top - FlexaYagi FX 2317 - 48 element for 1296 MHz, 6 element 70 cm yagi (vertical), an old but refurbished Tet Emtron HB33 and Vargarda 5 element 6 meter. A 88-108 MHz receiving Yagi - 3 element - is fixed in 300 degrees. Normally I hear the FM broadcast transmitter in Halden (Norway) - approx 330 km away.

I have a mast mounted transverter for 1296 MHz - connected to the FlexaYagi - 2 watt output. IF is 144 MHz to a Yaesu FT-290RII in the shack. Normally I hear the beacon SK4BX - distance 136 km.

Some of the other antennas are - active antenna Standard Radio AA-300, Homemade bi-cone dipole 70-90 MHz, Coaxdipole 135 - 155 MHz,

 

On the roof of my house there are some antennas wink. From left to right - Diamond CP-5, MFJ 1796 and Diamond X510.

The Diamond CP-5 antenna has been moved to the roof of my garage - see below.

 

Other antennas - not in tower - are: Butternut HF9V, Icom AH-710, Diamond W-8010, and some homemade wire, beam and vertical antennas. A new ground mounted antenna has been added to the "antenna farm" - Cushcraft R8!

 

Hope to hear you soon on the bands!
