TF3CL has started his activity in Reykjavík, during the beginning of July 2010.
Since the end of August 2011, when moving to Akranes,TF2CL call is in use.
Some little note about me, Claudio: after long periods as SWL and a continued interest in the propagation and its application to Amateur Radio, years ago I decided to be an active part of the "game".
I am a freelance, specialized in tourism and tourism marketing, and I am Italian: I lived between Ischia Island-where I have my family and house and where I return quite often-Rome and Berlin, before being here, in the lovely Iceland.
Hobbies, beyond Our: travelling, music, reading, sport.
Returning to the Radio: grateful for the friendly support to National Association of Icelandic radio amateurs (www.ira.is) and to Post and Telecom Administration in Iceland (www.pta.is), as well as to QRZ for the pleasant service.
Glad to be the 1st UltraBeam user in TF land. Mine is the new 2 el. 6-40M, with 1el. on 30 and 40M. Special thanks to Vincenzo IK1DYS, accurate, competent and extremely helpful UltraBeam boss. In the pic below You can see my dear friend Salvatore IC8SQS struggling with the antenna, before strengthening supports and raise the structure approximately 10/12 meters above the ground or until more, if WX is ok. Then it is me, in the other pics.
Sometimes I like to operate on QRP, mostly on Digi Modes, where I can do a variety of experiments and comparisons related to the study of propagation, that-as noted earlier-is one of my interest and passion in this world, especially in the different experiences between locators and countries. Most of times I go with the UltraBeam or with an enjoyable Magnetic Loop 20-10M that You can see here just above a Tonna 5el. in use during the summertime for the Magic Band, often in /P.
Other antennas are ready in the workroom to be tested and used: propagation, weather, time and space permitting, of course.
When I can, I also like to have fun in portable, enjoying the wonderful icelandic nature.
Here-from left to the right-it is me with Salvatore IC8SQS and Pasquale DJØCL, during a nice trip to the Ira Club, in Skeljanes (August 2012).
Direct-an adequate SAE and sufficient return postage (°2 USD /1 new IRC Doha model to 31/12/2017 with valid stamp of a National Post service°) in addition. Otherwise, with old IRC or insufficient contribution, the card will go via the Bureau. All direct QSLs are generally answered within 1 week, if I am in Iceland and if the local Custom does not slow down the process of receiving for any controls or procedures, as can happen sometimes.
Bureau-concerning to the Bureau, I will reply to all cards received in the same way, 1 or 2 times during the year. So be very patient, because this is a nice service but a bit slow and also I am slowed, as I do not go to the local Club on monthly basis.
LoTW-usually updated weekly.
eQSL-AG, for valid contacts.
HRDLog-automatic confirmation of each QSO.
SWL report-always appreciated and welcome, following the rules above.
***For contacts made from Grimsey island-IOTA EU-168-please, refer only to Sal IC8SQS for all infos and requests.***
In case of any question,problem or doubt, feel free to ask using the @mail.
I am grateful for Your attention, understaning and cooperation.
My Log is generated by HRD and often updated on ClubLog, where You can find the TF3CL Log as well.
