Licensed in 1956 as SM5BIC with QTH Vastervik on the east coast of Sweden. At that time 5 watts was considered ample power (40 m XTAL controlled CW). QRV as SM7BIC/7 from our summerplace on the island of Vaderskar, IOTA EU 037, JO87JW mainly during the summertime. I have been QRV as W6/SM7BIC and OX/SM7BIC. Top Band was opened up for us in Sweden in the 80´s and since then it has been my primary interest. I got my 160 DXCC in 1987 with many well known hams like KH6CC/Jack in 1986, PY0FE/Ron in 1983,VS6DO/Paul 1985 and ZL3GQ/Peter in 1983 on my "first" list.

You will most certainly find me on 160/80/40 CW. I am using a top loaded tower as my TX antenna on 160 and 80. It is self resonant just below 1.8 MHz and the detuning stub for 160 is used as a gamma match on 80, simple and fairly good as a half wave vertical. RX antennas: A 4 square and some short Bev:s which can be phased using the DXE Phasing box (NCC-1). I am using an IC756PROIII and an Elecraft K3. A Ten Tec Titan and my old rebuilt Henry 4K can boost sigs when needed.

Picture from our summer QTH, Vaderskar.

QSL: I answer all cards received, buro or direct. If direct, please include envelope and postage for prompt answer.
