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.
From the Caribbean domicile Belize, I am with the call sign V31ES on air.
Usualy, I spend my time at
Germany, here I 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 1970s!
. . . followed by my first shack, in the 80s!  . . ."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!

Recently, I am engaged in the procurement and gathering of old measuring devices
and HF-technology to equip the Ham Radio Museum with the necessary exhibits.
The old equipment needs to be repaired and conserved for the next generations
and that's only one reason to save them from the scrap death.

Any offer and transfer of exhibits & spareparts are welcome!!

Coming soon: "more details, pics and excellent workmanship"!

You're welcome and thanks for a feedback!
