I AM NOT A USER OF QRZ LOGBOOK
Thank you for looking up my page!
Let me first briefly introduce myself:
I was born in February 1963 at Mytilini (Lesvos island). I started at the age of 14 with various homebrewed low grade equipments. At 17, I met my good friend Kostas (later SV8BEV) who taught me important electronic fundamentals, radio amateur activities and introduced me to Alex (later SV8QG). Many thanks to both of them! Unfortunately, I failed my first licensure examination in 1981 but this motivated me to work even harder at becoming more knowledgeable with telecommunications. For the last 20 years I have lived in Chrisoupolis City, located in the Northeast of Greece (Loc:KN20ix). Reexamined here and licensed with prefix SV7 at 2002. Here I met Nick SV7GX and I am grateful for the many hours we spent talking about antennas, and several other ham subjects. I had been inactive for 8 years due to job and family but I am active again since spring 2010 as follows:
Modes: Mainly SSB.
As you can see I work all the rigs with one mic Behringer C-1 (ignore the left one, it is for VoIP). For this purpose I use some Behringer equipments (MIC-2200, DSP-1124P, MDX 2600) and a homemade selector unit with isolation transformer.Many thanks to Nick SV7BVS for transmit audio settings.
CW: Now trying low speed with straight key (You may need some patience with me!)
Digimodes: Future plan.
160M: Limited activity with the 80M delta loop working as random wire.
80M: Delta Loop vertical polarization.
40M: With the 80M delta loop tuned by antenna tuner.
20-15-10M: Old HyGain TH3JR S rebuilt.
12M: Rectangular Loop monobander.
17M: With the 80M delta loop tuned by antenna tuner. Good performance!
6M: 5el yagi NBS Design(homemade).
4M: 6el YU7EF design(homemade).
2M: 11el LFA G0KSC(homemade),7el YU7EF(homemade) & Diamond X-510.
70cm: 18el LFA G0KSC(homemade horizontal), 16el YU7EF (homemade vertical) & Diamond X-510.
23cm: 23el F9FT (horizontal).
For all these I'm using three homemade guyed towers. One 12M(40ft) and two short twins on the slopping roof.
Highest point of all three and almost at the same level 15M(50ft).
Kenpro KR-400RC (2nd hand home rebuilt).
Emotator 502CXX (2nd hand home rebuilt).
Finally the Rigs:
HF and 6M Yaesu FT-950
HF and 4M ICOM IC-7100 (also for FM 2M/70cm)
2M-70cm-23cm ICOM IC-910H
My south tower with a refurbished HyGain TH3JR-S for 10-15-20M, a 5el homemade yagi for 6M (NBS Yagi Design-ARRL publications), and a Diamond x-510 above.
My East tower with the G0KSCs 11el LFA for 2M and YU7EFs 6el yagi for 4M.
My West tower with F9FT 23el (hor) for 23cm, G0KSC 18el LFA (hor) for 70cm, YU7EF 16el (ver) for 70cm and YU7EF 7el (ver) for 2M.
