Born in 1946 and active since 1958 (age 12).

Licensed 1964 as 4X4NUF (novice). upgraded the following year to General using 4X4UF and finally 1966, to "First" class (Extra equivalent), using 4X1UF.Took part in the development groups of packet radio in the early stages of its life back in the 70's of the 20th century and the usage of the TCPIP protocol, the father of the internet.

Development of unique transistorized equipment (CW tx, DSB xcvr etc.) miniaturized transmitters.

Loves CW and DX activities, building my own equipment and special antennas.

Currently working in digital modes, BPSK, RTTY, JT65 and SSTV

Using HRD  and HB9HQX software with my IC-7000 running about 25 watts into my DX88 vertical or G5RV dipole.

Curently also very active using the DMR technology (my own ID is: 4253002) and it is great to be able to chat with the world even when HF is so down. So all of you guys are more than welcome to join our group and call us on our local Talk Group 425.

My QTH is Haifa, to me is the most beautiful city in the world, a port town on the mediterenian sea

In the last 20 years, gaind vast experience in computers, networks (including wireless), internet etc.

In professional life, in these 20 years, designed, installed and

maintained satellite networks (mainly VSAT) integrated into voice, data and internet infrastructure

and implemented into terrestial networks including cable, wireless and fiber networks.


At present, running my own computer maintenance company with

main purpose of helping elderly people running and using their

computer and the internet.

In addition, importing Chinese ham radio equipment with a goal of bringing back to the hobby hams that quit years ago

in 1964 was licensed as 4X4NUF, novice with home made equipment, Philips broadcast receiver (modified with a xtal bfo !!) 10 watts output

CW only.


in 1966 more or less this is how i looked....... (4X4UF at that time)

These are some of the antennas i used in the 60's and 70's


In the 90's operated from Nigeria as 5N0SVL (this picture was taken just before receiving my 5N0 call sign)

with these "modest"antennas.

While in Nigeria, i was busy with satellite communication systems to provide the public with telephone and internet aceess in West Africa.

This particular picture was taken in Ghana.

Currently, I am active again after more than 25 years of silence.

My station includes Icom IC-7000, Heath SB-221 linear amplifier and a DX-88 multi-band vertical antenna for HF, and a G5RV multi-band dipole.

Very active also on digital modes; RTTY, BPSK, JT65 etc (using the RigExpert TI-5 interface).

Part of the israeli DMR radio group

My current ham station, with the addition of the digital interface and software



I love CW but you can hear me on SSB as well.



few pictures of my DX88 vertical mounted between the trees, also partialy visible is the Inv V dipole (on the right)

my V /U vertical mounted using a magnetic mount on an air coditioner just outside the window... with some view over the bay

As from January 2013, active on all bands from my car too, using the call 4X1UF/M running Yaesu FT-857D and the ATAS 120A tunable mobile antenna.During the Holy Land Contest on April 20, 2013 I used the following callsigns

(depending on the square i was): 4X11UF, 4X12UF,4X13UF,4X14UF and 4X15UF


Mobile activity

Currently using the Yaesu, FT-857D on HF, VHF and UHF SSB and Analog and the MYT DM-8000DMR UHF

radio utilizing the 45 watts to hit local repeaters (TG 425) . When outside the repeaters range i'm utilizing the DVMEGA radio in conjuction with a Raspberry PI3B

Micro Computer utilizing the WiFi already in the car for my MultiMedia system










On the left, a general view of my Skoda Octavia car with the antenna 


On the right, the driver seat view, you can see the remote head of the Yaesu FT-857D on the top and below it the MYT DM-8000 DMR radio




This is the triple Magnet Mounting I am using to securely hold the antenna even in high speed driving.     












In the rear, the UHF antennna used with the DMR network is visible on the left

and on the right, the DVBT antenna used with my multi-media broadcast reception (radio and TV)
