Thanks for looking me up.

I started up my radio activity in 1984 at the age of 14 at the citizen band but gave it up in 1991. The radio virus hit me again in 2009 so the same year I got my amateur radio licence initially as SW1OAA and then in 2010 as SV1OAA after I passed the CW exams.

My QTH is in Athens (KM17vv) very near the old airport of Hellinikon at 350m above sea level with wide open horizon from 180-360 degrees but almost fully blocked from 0-180 degrees due to the nearby mountain of Ymittos.

My station setup is very simple:

For HF I use a random wire and an antenna coupler.

For 50MHz I use a homebrew 6 element yagi designed by Pop (YU7EF) and a 22db preamplifier.

For 144MHz I use 2 x 8 element yagis by I0JXX and a 12db preamplifier.

My radio is a Kenwood TS-2000X and my TX power is 100W in all bands.

I operate almost entirely on CW but also enjoy 2m Es on SSB during summer. I like to experiment with inexpensive sdr receivers and their various applications.

My alternative QTH is @ KM27dp, Kea Island, Cycladic Islands, EU-067. From there I plan to practice my favouriteEarth Moon Earth - CW mode - with a 3.7m dish for the 23cm band. The instalation (which lasted nearly 2 years during my free time on summer vacations) is nearly ready and hope that i can be QRV during summer 2014. (please check J48OAA). From the island QTH, i operate QRP with a fantastic Yaesu FT-817 and varius homebrew wire HF antennas or 2m/6m yagis.

I prefer Direct QSL cards and i reply them next day.( No need to send $ or IRC, only a shelf addressed envelope is enough.) The ones I receive via the Bureau are also welcome but i collect them and reply them only once or twice per year since my radio club (Radio Amateur Association of Greece- RAAG) is not so near my house.

I do enjoy DXing but I am not after any award.

tnx & 73
