With that said, here's some info about me:

Below are a couple of pictures of XYL and myself walking the dogs on the beach - in windy WX.

Here's our wooden house, built in 2009.

The garage and my shack with good window to the back garden.

Antennas are an Optibeam OBW10-5 wire beam at 11m over the ground. It covers 10/12/15/17/20m bands.  The Optibeam is on a 9m Mini-XL tower from Hummelmasten.de  In addition I have Windom antennas that covers all HF + 6M bands.

The main HF rig is a FLEX-6300 with a SPE Expert 1-3k-fa Power Amp to give a little extra - when needed. I also have an IC-7100 HF/VHF/UHF in the shack that are used when running remote operations using Icom's RS-BA1 software. It operates all HF bands + 2m/70cms on a VHF/UHF vertical.

I am an ex. merchant-ships R/O. I enjoy a good rag chew on CW. Using my Vibroplex "Blue Racer DeLuxe" bug, made in 1956. It's almost my age (I'm born in 1954). Also use a nice dual paddle, type CT EUROPE with the built-in tranceivers keyers.

SAILING - /MM

During spring/summer I spend as much time as possible on our 38 foot sailboat, "Ocean Viking" - callsign: LK6534. Its moored in the little town of Farsund - 10 minutes from my QTH.

Rig there is an ICOM IC-706MK2G connected to a LW hanging from the mast and tuned with an ICOM AH-3 tuner.
Also equipped with a Pactor modem used mainly for E-mails via the Winlink2000 system.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The video below was filmed in July 2011, sailing from OZ to SM. Sorry for the poor quality (used my cellphone.)

I earn my living on an oil/gas production field in the North Sea (In locator JO08wi).

When time, I get on the air on HF/VHF/UHF from there. Usually at night time Z.

Here's a video of a helicopter doing fly-passes and finally landing on the helideck.
