Thank you for looking me up, and thank you for being part of this wonderful hobby!
Most of us are technically inclined, and thus it is easy to think that this is the only reason for having radio as our passion. But I do believe that the PEOPLE, the fellow ham on the other end of the QSO, is just as important for this hobby to exist. Without YOU, this hobby would not exist!
I run HF in three different ways:
CW is fun!
If we have had a CW QSO, I must thank you for your patience. I have taken up CW again, for one reason only (almost)… It is fun! Regrettably my remote setup as it is at the moment does not facilitate sending CW. The other “half reason” for taking up CW is the fact that I enjoy SOTA very much during the summer season. CW QRP really does get you a lot further that SSB QRP! Sorry for saying this… but it is really true! So if you are a SOTA enthusiast… Go ahead and learn CW! You will never regret it!
It’s all fun! I need more time to try it all!
I find all aspects of this hobby very attractive and interesting. I do participate in VHF contests when I have the time. I have tried bouncing VHF of the aurora. I enjoy running satellites. And I want to try meteor-scatter and EME as well. I am one of very few here in Oslo on 23cm. Life is too short to mourn the lack of sunspots! I need to repair my 160m loop so that I can get on 160m again. How about trying out some of the week signal HF digital modes, and get amazed at how far we can reach with low power and rotten bands!
Thank you for taking part in this hobby, so that I have somebody to talk to on the other end.

Here I am on my way up to a SOTA top:

OK, 73 and talk to you on the air!
