Hey folks, don't forget: the fun is the power!

I'm Tom, a Keydown Lover . . . !

My ham radio interest started in germany at the 70s when I got my first 3 channel walkie-talkie.
This was real a crazy toy, but not enough. I wanted more, so I started with citizen-band,
followed by pirate band DXing. That was a great time and not to forget!

In the 80s I became a SWL, using a very nice FRG-7 receiver and just a random length piece of wire.
I spent hours listening fellow ham radio operators and strange signals form outer-space.
This was fun and I learned a lot, but still there was something missing:
I was dreaming, about being able to join those "outer-space- conversations" myself.
So I started to learn the ham lessons, to become a radio amateur.

At last, I was able to go on air! Using a old transmitter with homebrew antenna and only
a few W output power. I was happy having my first contacts with stations real far away.

That was indeed a golden age, no PLC (broadband over power lines), no cordless bells,
no baby alarms, no nosey neighbours, thinking their goldfish had died because of a local
hams transmitter X-ray! . . . i doing: QRP ! . . . or was it: QRO ?

My Professions: electronics, IT-, mechatronics- & automotive-engineering. So I got all the brain
and knowledge which should help me to do also nice technical projects in my ham radio career.

Due to personal circumstances I had a few years break from ham radio. My interest in ham radio
reinvigorated when I was in the States, here I got
my US call sign KC2SKV.
Now, I spend
my time at lovely place and work as troubleshooter & taskforce manager.
At leisure I live my vocation "ham radio".

HAM RADIO is: >> "with the greatest possible effort and financial resources, to achieve the least benefits"! <<

this toy was my first and very simple TRX, in the sevetties!
. . . followed by my first shack, in the eighties!  . . ."simply unbelievable"



my live & willy is to short for QRP 

Part of my measuring equipment at shack. This pictures are made, during the construction of a Amplifier

This pictures show the reconstruction of a high-end PA, really a huge tube inside

The calibration of the shortwave PA,  with my "schomandl" measuring receiver

QRO Tuner is a bit more quality and different to the MFJ antenna tuner. Pictures needs no more words!

one of my shack's

That's a new 60Kg piece for another QRO projekt

Down, some of my new ++KW QRO projects ;-)

The historic Radio-Truck is perfect to tow the antenna-mast trailer to field days

And the story goes on!
Coming soon: "more details, pics and excellent workmanship"!

You're welcome and thanks for a feedback!
