Hi.

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

Back in the highschool, at 25th of January 1985 I was licensed first time as ham radio, callsign YO2-1525/HD.

At that time using an old "Mamaia" transistor radio (10 Ge transistors), with SW band modified for 80m, for SWL. For transmitting I worked at the club station, in Deva.

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.

2014 - YP25MNE - a special callsign I am using, comemorating 25 years from the Revolution started in Timisoara in December 1989.

Please visit the page of YP25MNE.

Many experiments with 10m vertical antenna, home made, placed on top of the block. 

Thank you for visiting my page, and hope to hear you on the radio waves.

73 de YO2MNE.
