Subscriber to the "DX Code of Conduct"  

Brief history

My name is Mike (aka Chally). I was envolved in Amateur Radio thanks to my father "Alex", aka UR5ECV. Owing father's persistence it was a hard attempt for me (and him too) to learn Morse Code being 10 years old... But two years later, in late 1988's, I finally ran into the air with my rather slow CW calling "CQ CQ..", and then collecting first calls. At that time our family radioshack consisted of old-time 200W military TX+RX called R-250 (not transceiverized) and a simple LW antenna. Nowadays it mostly collects dust at the summer-house; more info about this here (in Russian only).

It had passed pretty much time till I've taken a long awaited exam and got my ever 1st class licence, in Sept.1998. I usually work on 80M-10M using my favourite mode CW at about 78.8%, SSB at 15.5%, and the rest is with Digital modes (after Clublog stats).

Current equipment setup

RIG: Icom IC-7000 (100W) - main TRCVR; Elecraft K2 (10W) - back-up radio and for portable / country-side operation
PC Interface: RigExpert Plus
Software: for digital modes - FLdigi, MMTTY, JT65-HF-HB9HQX-Edition
PA: UM-200 (200W)
Antennas: mainly simple Dipoles; 2M-40M versatile dipole Buddipole™ by W3FF; Vertical AV-640 by Hy-Gain for 6M - 40M band; other

at home radio shack (since June 2010)

For /A and /P operations I use Buddipole (Rotary Dipole by W3FF) antenna and my beloved hot IC-7k. That's how it usually done (hi!):

Portable with (C) Buddipole Dipole

...and when use "portable"

Operating at the summer-house as UR7EZ/A (URDA DN-14)

...and UR7EZ/A operating...

Not only for Data modes but also for major contests I use RigExpert Plus interface. For contests I prefer TR4W logger (thanks to Dmitriy, UA4WLI) and N1MM Logger, and for regular logging I use DXKeeper from DXLab suite. For TRCVR control I frequently use TRX-Manager (the best in its class! Big "thank you" Laurent, F6DEX).

Apparently I help my brother Con, US5ETV with new antennas design projects which would be a pain to tune without RigExpert AA-200 analyzer (really excellent piece of electronics!)

QSL info

My QSL card is 100% via Bureau (it's working good), or, if you wish, via Direct to the address above. When sending direct - no money needed, I will gladly send you my QSL the same way.
If you still need my QSL for some contact(s), please don't hesitate to e-mail me with your QSO(s) data (or use ClubLog Log search with email request above) - and I will surely re-confirm our QSO(s).

Look also for my Amateur radio photo album with chronological QSL designs and other stuff on my Flickr account here.
I fond of DXing, awards chasing (esp. for DXCC, IOTA, UIA , ULA, RRA, RLHA) and I am a paper-QSL collector thus your QSL is much appreciated.

I do have eQSL account (AG) and update it some times per year. Not a LOTW member, sri.

See you all on the bands es 73's!
