*** Update 4 August 2017 ***

I had my license in 1986 and been active since then without any significant "dropouts".

"D-star" - or DV - with a DV Hotspot is active (SG5RVH B ) on 434,4875 MHz. The HotSpot is normally connected to the reflector  DCS010 H. 

In the town Nykoping I have an APRS-digipeater (SM5RVH-2) located very high. Coverage approx 50 km in radius for mobile stations!

I;m running an EchoLink gateway - SM5RVH-L, node 839597. This node is connected to my multi-crossbandrepeater - 29,175 <-> 51,450 <-> 145,450 <-> 1297,500 MHz. As long as you use 103,5 Hz Subtone when you transmit and regardless frequency above - you will be repeated on the other frequencies!  

My multi-crossbandlink - latest added frequency = 1297,500 MHz.

The common frequency is on the 70 cm band! All the transcievers are connected through duplexfilters and dummyloads for the 70 cm local-communication part of the system. This is done to minimize interference to other  amateurservices!


A Winmor / Pactor 1 & 2 & 3 HF-email gateway  - Winlink - is active on 80, 40, 30, 20 and 15 meter. See http://www.winlink.org/ for more info.

​My equipment for HF Winlink - Winmor and Pactor I/II/III


I:m back on HF with ALE - as SM5RVH Pilot Station with the possibility to send messages, email using "built in functions" in ALE! I:m using the MARS-ALE software and is active on 40, 30, 20, 17, 15, 12 and 10 meter. The software is configured to "listen before TX" which is a very nice and polite way to get access to our shared spectrum resource with a minimum of interference!

See more info on http://www.hflink.com and http://www.hflink.net

I;m also operating a 1200 baud AX-25 Winlink email access-node on 144,925 MHz. Callsign SM5RVH-10.

Note: There are several stations in Sweden active for AX25 Winlink email access and from the end of March 2014 we agreed with SSA (Swedish amateur radio society) to make the frequency 144,925 MHz a national activity center for Winlink AX25 1200 baud. See the Swedish bandplan for 2 meter at http://www.ssa.se/download/sektioner/vushf/bandplaner/144MHz.pdf​. Please join us and move your local PBBS to 144,925 MHz!!


I turn on my ATV-equipment (1255 MHz FM) now and then. Please send me an email for sched!

​My setup for HF APRS running both Robust Packet and Packet AFSK 300b.


Mobile/portable activities:

​Im active on portable APRS as SM5RVH-7 and DPRS as SM5RVH-5.

For my (car)mobile activity I:m using:

Icom IC-7000 (HF from 3,5 - 50 MHz - voice chat and Robust Packet APRS-positioning)

Kenwood TM-D710 (APRS 144,8000 and Wide 1-1 digi and VHF/UHF voice chat)

Yaesu FT-8900 (Local/Mobile crossband repeater (433,0125 <-> 51,4500 MHz) for my handheld - normally uses my crossband and Echolink equipment @ home)

Yaesu VX-8 (for extended range of portable activity I.m using the mobile crossband repeater (FT-8900) and wide 1-1 digi (TM-D710)


My mobile setup


My mobile antennas - Diamond NR2000N (144, 430, 1296 MHz), High Sierra Sidekick (3,5 - 50 MHz), Comet SB-15 (50, 144, 430 MHz


Antenna mount detail 


Powersupply filtering and distributionbox


Grounding is important !!


Controlbox for the High Sierra Sidekick antenna


At home:

My other equipment at home consists of many coaxcables smiley, a selfsupported 24 meter tower and its "smaller brother" - a 10 meter tower - see pictures below.

A lot of cables in the antennabox. All the coax-cables goes through a panel for grounding the shield of the coax. From the beginning I didn't plan to have this amount of cables but the number increased over the years - now I have to do something about this mess. But I have created documentation telling me all the info I need about which cable is what etc. so I can live with this situation a liitle bit longer ;-).

The grounding of the house consists of a very thick copperwire buried beside the drainage pipe in the soil. The towers has copperwires connected and also buried around the concrete base. All the wires are connected together and create my groundingsystem. The mains input has overvoltage protection circuit which is connected to the grounding wire! And the antennabox - with the cconnectorpanels - are of course connected to the groundingsystem.  


This is my 24 meter (approx 80 feet) selfsupported tower including 21000 kg (!) of concrete in the base! The antennas are: Create CLP-5130-2, Cuedee 17 element 70 cm, Tonna 9 element 2 m, two homemade 3-element Yagi's for 156 MHz for reception of coastal radio traffic, a BigWheel omnidirectional antenna for 2 meter, 2 * Icom AH-7000, Diamond A502HB 2 element 6 m, Dressler ARA-2000, Fritzel FB-33 (fixed in 260 degrees), A dipole from a Cushcraft A3WS - incl. 10 MHz,  Vargarda 6 element 2 meter (fixed in 320 degrees), a 1/9-transformer connected to a 40 meter wire stretched out 3 meters above the ground, an old Decibel Products with 8 stacked dipole antennas for 70 cm. A Tennadyne T-10 is waiting to be applied on the top of the tower on a Daiwa MR-750 (3 motor) rotator. 


Closer view of the big tower


This is my small selfsupported tower (10 meters high)! From the top - FlexaYagi FX 2317 - 48 element for 1296 MHz, The second antenna is a combination of a HyGain 103BA and a MFJ-1175 - as the dipole element. On 10 m it works as a 3-element beam - may not have the gain expected by a "true 3 ele beam" - and on 15,20 and 40 m it's a rotatable dipole. Then a Vargarda 6 element for 2 meter and a 5 element for 6 meter. A 88-108 MHz receiving Yagi - 3 element - is fixed in 290 degrees. 

I have a transverter for 1296 MHz - directly mounted under and connected to the FlexaYagi - 2 watt output. IF is 144 MHz to a Yaesu FT-290RII in the shack. Normally I hear the beacon SK4BX - distance 136 km.

Some of the other antennas are - Wireantennas incl. 1/9 transformer, Coaxdipole 135 - 155 MHz, 70 cm yagis etc.

On the roof of my house there are some antennas - A Diamond X-510N, a Diamond X-777 for Airband reception and a refurbished 1/2-wave CB-antenna - tuned to 29 MHz (in use for the 29 MHz part of the multicrossbandlink!)


On the garage - a Diamond CP-6.

The CP-6 has an RF-choke - mounted very close to the feeding points - made of a number of turns of the coax-cable around a 4 inch tube!



And on the roof of the playhouse - a Cushcraft R8! This antenna is in use for the ALE-service mentioned above.



​My T2FD for Winlink - Icom AH-710


An additional, new T2FD-antenna - Dannex FRA1530A

Other antennas are: Butternut HF9V and a Diamond CP-5! A vertical 1/4-wave groundmounted antenna for my 30-meter APRS activity is connected to my Icom M-710 transciever! The antenna has several radials buried in the grass and (normally) very damp soil.


Please send me a message or chat using the above described services and frequencies. I:m quite often active on APRS SM5RVH-7 which is possible to reach in many ways - example: Send me an Aprs message using RobustPacket on 30 meter - very high availability - it's Robust ;-)!
