Hello and thank you for checking my QRZ profile.

15-16/10-2013 Opr. from EU-062 - Helligvær
Other Call held: SA6CKK

The Layback DX'er

Having regained interest in CW again, I have logged well over 270 new DXCC CW QSO's the past year (2015). I try now something more than just "599" and "TU".
So whoever I have a rag QSO with, please be patient - old skill will return, but it's slow :)

License since April 1992 with the callsign LB8YD. In December 1992 I went up to the new exam and got my current callsign LA6YIA. My home town: Fredrikstad, 'Fredrik's Town about 100 km sout/est from capital city Oslo.

Transmitters

  • Icom IC-7800
  • Yaesu FT 2000 for Low band (30/40/80)
  • Elekraft KX3

Antennas

  • Tenadyne LPA T8 for 10-20 meter.
  • Butternut HFv2 and Windom 10-80 at 15 mtr above ground.
  • Delta loop for 30 mtr 
  • 2 x 150 meter beverage for RX is doing a great job on low band.
  • Inv-L at 25 mtr, using 9:1 balun, this antenna mostly used for RX
  • Extended Double Zepp (EDZ) with 600 ohm open wire.

My extended double zepp​ (EDZ) from  TrueLadderline with about 260 meter 600 ohm open wire is up and working, about 40 meter above "HF ground" !! WOW - This is great. The picture show the EDZ feedpoint at the mountain top​ 40 meter above my QTH. 260 mtr 600 ohm open wire find it's way up through bushes, trees, nettles, even through a concrete pipe that runs under the main road to where I live.

At the mountain top above my QTH

EDZ feedpoint

.....through a concrete pipe that runs under the main road. Believe it or not, EDZ antenna works very well. SWR conditions are as expected, manage to get 1: 1 on all bands, from 6-160 mtr.
Sending with a maximum of 200 watts and has logged many DX stations already.

The Layback DX'er
"Relaxed and calm, but stressed inside"

This is the fourth day I get up long before the birds consider waking up.
80 meters CW QSO with K1N was something I wanted most of all. A visit to an amateur radio friend with Acom 1000 made the differsence . 
The picture was taken about 3 seconds before K1N was logged at 80 meters. Thanks to Sindre who let me borrow his radio, PA and 80 mtr antenna...

Fantastic DX expedition, superb radio operators and great fun
Best regards to K1N Team
