I am active since 1977 and I graduated with advanced (superieur) license in 1978.
I do my own antenna installation and maintenance.
My goals is to get over 200 countries on all 9 bands.
I like to take my time during a contact, of course I am active on the main cw-ssb-rtty contests and tolook fordx on all bands.
I participated in two IOTA contest in Europe.
Not a perfect location with some noise floor (TV, PS) and every 2-3 years I build a new one. The one right now is K9AY dual loop antenna with 10 db preamp and band filter for 80-160m seen I cannot install any beverage antenna.
I do not chase for award and so far I got 165 coutries on the top band.
Antenna: Mosley PRO 96 (40, 20-10m), homemade 5 elements yagi 6m on 19.7m tower.
Special double polarization (H-V) 80m antenna, 30m: delta loop 1/4 ŷ corner feed
160m: Shunt-fed 25m tower, resonance is lower than1.8 khz.
Ameritron AL-1500x 100% at 1.5 kw, 2 kw PEP AM modified for HD usage
Amplifier is state of the art modified with HV & filament soft start, soft-key, vacuum relay, optic bias coupling, HD power supply parts, safety control.
Tower: Trylon 400-80 (25m), Delhi (19.7m)
Rotator: Alfa Spid rack with controller and also Green Heron Engineering
Power Master with 3kw remote rf sensor for VSWR, RF power alarm with shut down with ALC for amplifier protection
Station is full protected against EMP, lightning strike for RF, static, AC lines, internet with some gas discharge modules and inductors on all systems, dual bulkhead panels in series for the coax cables.
