TF3CL has started his activity in Reykjavík, during the beginning of July 2010, with some fun also from Hrìsey Island, on the north coast, and later from Grìmsey Island, on the Arctic Circle..
Since the end of August 2011, often moving to Akranes, TF2CL call is in use.
From June 2014, when in Iceland, I will continue to operate from zone 2, on the south-west of the country, a few kilometers away from the locator that I regurarly used until now to specific my position: more details will come, during the operations.
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 an Italian freelance, specialized in tourism and tourism marketing.
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 Enzo IK1DYS, accurate, competent and extremely helpful UltraBeam boss. In the pic below You can see my dear friend Sal 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-me with IC8SQS and DJØCL, during a nice trip to the Ira Club, in Skeljanes (August 2012).
Direct-from Jan 2014 no Direct to Iceland, due to the fact that I will spend most of time in Italy for renovation works to my house: so please, contact me via @mail if You need a TF QSL or use electronic and faster methods of confirmation.
Bureau-concerning to the Bureau, I will reply to all cards received in the same way, only 1 time at the end of year. Be very patient, because this is a nice service but very slow and also, as mentioned, I will not be often in Iceland in the coming months, so better to use other methods of confirmation.
LoTW-usually updated weekly. For TF3CL, all QSOs are in a single file, no /P, /5 or /2.
eQSL-AG for valid contacts and without unnecessary requests, idem for TF3CL.
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, understanding and cooperation.
My Log is generated by HRD and often updated on ClubLog, where You can find the TF3CL Log as well.
