Ham Member Lookups: 1314

 

 

Back to the hobby! After 25 years of radio silence from a Ham Club operator in South Russia, I am finally back on the air in North Florida.

After my initial interest in electronics was sparked by my father's support, I was always interested in radio communicatuions and then in computers. I have soldered my first computer, a Sinclair ZX 80, when I was 15 and I was hooked. Bulding home brewed 10 meter QRP rigs and operating at the local Club Station opened the world of radio for me and a new language of CW. And even though my CW skills have faded, the love for the radio never did.

Fast forward 25 years... Moving to Florida and living through few hurricanes made me come back to the radio with a Tech licence, a 144/440 rig and a diamond antenna. This was done mainly for emergency comm options in case of a disaster. To keep my options open, my first rig, an Icom 7000, also had full HF capabilities and shortly after with a DX-CC dipole I was a General Class chasing DX.

You can not stop there right? So the next step was a Icom 7600 and PW-1 amp.

The only obstacle was restricted community rules, prohibiting any antenna installations. So how do you hide a 30ft pole with 144/440 omnidirectional and a full Hex Beam? You camo-paint-it and set it against the woods. You have to get your immidiate neighbors to go along, but so far so good for me...

 

Now you see it...

 

 

And now its gone...

 

Thank you for visiting my page and I hope to see you down my newly growing log book.
