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
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!):
...and when use "portable"
...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).
To check if you are in my log (also for UR7EZ/A and contest QSOs) check it within ClubLog.
or you can also visit my HRDLog page.
