I was licensed in 1975 and I operate on many bands and modes but mainly on CW at the moment.
The photo shows me operating as SP/GI4DOH in Krakow, Poland, in October 2013. The equipment is my Elecraft KX3 with a Palm Radio Pico Paddle (needs a light touch) and a G4TPH Magnetic Loop antenna.
My home QTH is in a residential area with lots of noise from Switched Mode Power Supplies, PLT and Plasma TVs. That's all part of the challenge. I tend to use a 350/400 Hz filter on CW so it helps if you net accurately.
Assuming you are within my passband, I have a widget using Spectrum Lab to set my RIT exactly so that I can use the Audio Peak Filter on my K3. Every bit helps. So if I get part of your call keep trying.
My Wellbrook Magnetic Loop also helps when used with the second Rx on the K3 for diversity reception on all bands.

Namibia DXpedition 2012:
I was in Namibia in March 2012 primarily to operate in the CQ WW SSB WPX contest with GI8MIV, GI4FUM, DM3BJ and V51B using the call V55B. I had opportunities to operate as V5/GI4DOH, mainly CW, and it was an interesting introduction to the other end of a pileup.
I also operated on the way to Friedrichshafen 2015 as ON/GI4DOH/M, LX/GI4DOH/M, F/GI4DOH/M and DL/GI4DOH/M on CW and as DL/GI4DOH on SSB all on 20m.
My QSL Policy:
I reply to all QSLs that I receive via the RSGB Bureau. You can request a bureau QSL by email.
QSLs that are received direct are normally sent the next day. $2 is fine. Please no IRC.
