Hi, and thank you for looking me up on qrz!

Latest update 18.02.17 Only antennas up at the moment is the Array Solutions OCF Dipole and a 6el OptiBeam for 6m. Newest addition to the shack is the Expert Electronics MB-1 SDR transceiver. 

I am now 44 years old, and originally from Finnsnes, close to the city of Tromsoe in the arctic part of Norway. In 2012 I moved to Askoey Island (IOTA EU-055), just outside the city of Bergen on the South West coast. Living here with my fiancee and beautiful daughter. One of my greatest hobbies back in Tromsoe was Aurora photography, so my daughters name is of course Aurora! A few of my Aurora photos below. 

My interest in radio started when I was 13 years old when one of my older brothers bought me a pair of hand held CB radios, and this interest have evolved into what it is today. My education is mainly in electronics, specializing in two fields: Audio/Hi-Fi and radio communications. Worked for about 14 yrs with high end Hi-Fi sales/service/installation. But in 1998 I decided I wanted to fly, so I moved to Florida for some years and did pilot training. This resulted in a Commercial pilots license with instrument and multi engine ratings.

When I got back home I took a temporary job as an assistant air traffic controller in Tromsoe (ENTC). I loved this job, and I have been working in control towers ever since. Also worked at Flesland international airport in Bergen (ENBR).

HF setup: ICOM IC-7800 / Expert MB-1 SDR, Palstar HF-Auto tuner, Array Solutions OCF dipole.

6m setup: ICOM IC-7800 / Expert MB-1 SDR / ICOM IC-575H / ICOM IC-551D, 6 element OptiBeam OB6-6.

4m setup: ICOM IC-7800, HA1YA transverter and 5element LFA yagi.

2m/70cm setup: Expert MB-1 SDR / ICOM IC-970H, Kenwood TS-2000E, Kenwood TS-711E, 2 horizontally stacked 9el InnovAntennas LFA Yagis with elevation. SSB Electronic MHP-200 PreAmp. Diamond X-50 vertical for local FM.

General setup: ProSisTel PST-2051D AZ rotor, ProSisTel 2051D-Pro Elevation rotor.Green Heron RT-21 Az/El Dueal rotator controller. MicroHAM MK2R+ Dual Radio soundcard interface. Heil PR-780 Microphone with shock mount, NCS-3240 Microphone switch. Array Solutions 4x8pak antenna switch. All coaxial cables are Radio Frequency Systems Cellflex 7/8 and 1/2 inch hardline and Ecoflex 10/15 around the rotator. Digimodes/CW and rig control is done with Ham Radio Deluxe/DM-780. 

Main interest is 6/4/2m SSB/CW/Meteor Scatter and 2m EME. But also active on all HF bands using SSB/CW/Digimodes...

All pictures taken at the airport I work, except the one taken from the Voyager 1 spacecraft and of course our cat! 

QSL card is direct or via bureau. I do send automatically QSL via eQSL and LoTW when I am entering QSO's in my log, but prefer paper QSL also pse.
