My name is Ivo, have been working with radio's since 1990, but my first contact with HAM was in 1978 in Ghana West Africa where a priest named Bob had a nice setup in Secondi-Takoradi in the school I attended. Since then I knew I will have a rig one day :) First DX was with made with a mobile radio Uniden PC-122 (AM+SSB) on Santiago 1200 then started Dx-ing on rest of 11m band with Uniden HR-2510 under the callsigns 161PLSY062, 161PN112, 161WAW017. Was convinced by friendly HAM's who heard me on 11m to make a license, finally made it in 1994.

Locally using FM, 2m and 70cm, with FT-7800, ant Diamond X-510 home freq 145.575 MHz, also club freq (SP73VOT) 144.575MHz, when moving around as mobile or portable I use repeater SR5WA 439.350MHz


Now in new QTH ouside town in the forest of the Kampinos National Park ground level - only 87m asl with water table about -2m bgl helping a little so conditions are as they are sad

Using ICOM IC-7200 100W - my log program is BBLogger


Antennas: all stretched between trees, between 7-15m agl (~94-102m asl)
