*** Update in February 2015 ***

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

"D-star" - or DV - with a DV Hotspot is active (SG5RVH B ) on 434,4875 MHz. The HotSpot is normally connected to the reflector  DCS010 R for mobile positioning (DPRS). You can find my DV mobile and portable as SM5RVH  and SM5RVH-5  on the APRS-map.  (not active)

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).

I have an 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-4

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

In the town Nykoping I have an APRS-digipeater (SM5RVH-2) located very high and which let users up to approx 50 km in radius to be digipeated!

I;m running an EchoLink gateway - SM5RVH-L, node 839597 on 2 meter (145,450 MHz 103,5 Hz CTCSS). On the same frequency you can reach the Wires-X network using my node 17159.

A Winmor / Pactor 1 & 2 & 3 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). Please note the new pactor level - Pactor 3!

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 2014 we agreed with SSA (Swedish amateur radio society) to make the frequency 144,925 MHz a national activity center for Winlink AX25 1200 baud. Please join us and move your local PBBS to 144,925 MHz!!

I have a crossbandrepeater between 145,4500 and 433,0125 MHz and 29,175 MHz NFM. CTCSS 103,5 Hz is used on all bands for activating this crossbandrepeater.

I turn on my ATV-equipment (1255 MHz FM) now and then. Please send me an email for sched!

Mobile HF-activity:

There has been some changes of the antennas on my car - please stay tuned for updates and new pictiures!

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!


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!


There has been some changes in the antenna farm - info and new pictiures will come soon!

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!
