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.
3 - W3DZZ made by SQ8OBE - a present from SQ5FLG, thanks Daniel !
4 - Self-made folded dipole for 28-29 MHz - 5m agl- according to LA8OKA
5 - Self made vertical delta loop for 17m according to LA8OKA, with self made 1:1 choke balun- Thanks Martin !
7- GP-6BTV- now in tuning phase
8. NEW - Long wire 50,6m (166,2ft) - for 160m
all works via Antenna Tuner MFJ 969 and 8 port multiswitch made by SQ5IZJ
8 - X-510 3x 5/8λ (144MHz), 8x 5/8λ (430MHz) about 11m agl (~98m asl),
so this is a forest setup, not easy but challenging :)
