Hi.

I am Horia, Electronic Engineer as profession, living in Timisoara, west part of Romania.

Since 1980 I was SWL, at that time using an old "Mamaia" transistor radio (10 Ge transistors), with SW band modified for 80m, being licenced as ham radio receiver.

In 2011 September I earned my new callsign YO2MNE.

April 2013 - my rig is Kenwood TS-140S [100W], and two antenna, one antenna is FD4, and one is a 8m vertical with several counterpoises (for different bands), switched and tuned with (a modified) VC300DLP.

May 2013 - FD4 antenna down, add GPE27 for 10m good performance. To improve the audio modulation, I changed the original Kenwood mike (good old dynamic) with a new Peavey PVi2 (vocal mike provides high quality sound reproduction, durable die-cast construction, designed for real world use. It has a clean sound that doesn't color the signal, and a cardioid pickup pattern so you can place a stage monitor on the floor behind the mic and avoid feedback).

June 15 and 16 2013 - Silagiu expedition, a 350m high hill at about 40km from Timisoara, QTH KN05TO, to make measurments, experiments and QSO with different home made antenna and participate to IARU 6m with the YP10KQT team. Watch this - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UziDX3B1GdI.

July 10 2013 - a strong thunderstorm, the 3rd in row, succeed to break one of my vertical antenna. Now I work only with GPE27.

July 12 2013 - change of transceiver: TS-140S gone to another ham radio, TS-850S is now my new rig. I can feel the difference.

July 16 2013 - good old vertical antenna, 8m fishing pole, back in business - now I have again some good DX, new country and QSO 500 done tonight.

August 2013 - FD3 in slope installed, works well for local, but the vertical is still the best for DX.

October 2013 - CQ WW SSB - first milestone of 1000 QSO passed.

November 2013 - First batch of more than 500 QSL cards sent to you.

 

I am usually working on HF: 10m to 40m. Sometimes also on the 80m band.

QTH is KN05OR.

Member of the YO2KQT "QSO Banat Timisoara" Radio Club.

My main interests are radio constructions, experiments and Dx contacts.

QSL - direct, via Bureau, eQSL.

 

For 2014 I activate the Comemorative call-sign YP25MNE - 25 years from the Revolution started in Timisoara, in December 16 1989.

 

Thank you for visiting my page http://www.qrz.com/db/YP25MNE and call back when you hear me on HF!

DX Code of Conduct

I will listen, and listen, and then listen again before calling.

I will only call if I can copy the DX station properly.

I will not trust the cluster and will be sure of the DX station's call sign before calling.

I will not interfere with the DX station nor anyone calling and will never tune up on the DX frequency or in the QSX slot.

I will wait for the DX station to end a contact before I call.

I will always send my full call sign.

I will call and then listen for a reasonable interval. I will not call continuously.

I will not transmit when the DX operator calls another call sign, not mine.

I will not transmit when the DX operator queries a call sign not like mine.

I will not transmitwhen the DX station calls other geographic areas than mine.

When the DX operator calls me, I will not repeat my call sign unless I think he has copied it incorrectly.

I will be thankful if and when I do make a contact.

I will respect my fellow hams and conduct myself so as to earn their respect.

Good luck. 73! Horia, YO2MNE.
