           Still love cards via bureau or direct


On days Dec 05/2017 and Dec 06/2017   I used call OF1XFE  because

             Finland has been 100 Years INDEPENDENT


Thank you very much for looking my qrz website. Step onboard !  (update 2/2018)

My Ham history is very short. I started 01/2015 and use only max 100W.  My interesting is to keep DX qso's and learn more about antennas. So I will design and make new better antennas and another thinks around ham operation. Now many thinks are under process, like 4 element light weight 6M quard antenna (weight  under 4 kg) and new homemade rotator and its control box using Raspberry Pi computer. Unfortunately I have to keep my sailingboat good condition so it takes my time time to time even here is winter.

During the summer when sailing I use  OH1XFE/M  call. Sometimes sailing on Alands OH0-DXCC ( OH0/OH1XFE )

Touch the Solar-table picture above and new upload table will open to you


In winter time boat is on ice. See video!


My Radio in boat during summer and wintertime at home is Kenwood TS-480 SAT  100W.  At home also Yaesu FT 897. No linear amplifier.

Antennas on boat are now Halo for 6 meter and  HyEndFed for 10-20-40 meter.  Also some one band endfed works fine.

Summertimes on boat I use a lot of  2 band 12/17 meter trapdipoli between two mast.


Below my new 15-17-20M yagi with rainbow

- Now (4/2017) I have new homemade telescope mast, homemade rotator and homemade OVF 323 Yagi antenna at home.

 The whole construction standing now on my roof. And I can use it on 13 or 17 meters high because it is telescope mast.

 You can see antenna up-position ( foto above ) and down-position with snow ( foto below ).

That new Switcho Model 323-201517,  design by Pekka OH1TV , antenna is three bands yagi (20-17-15M), working like opposite voltage feed as below:

- 20M: 2 elements OVF

- 15M: 3 parasitic elements, 2 of them open sleeve to 20m elements

- 17M: 15m elements with inductive(coils) loading at the element center ( see foto )

Let you go to Pekkas page on  www.kolumbus.fi/pekka.ketonen   there you can find many antenna projekts. I think this new antenna design will come soon on his pages!!!

Its works fine. Best is that F/B is 20dB on all band so it is very quiet antenna. But it isnt easy to build

As I told I made also new homemade rotator, using cars windscreen wiper motor and karting chain sprocket and pic processor up in rotator and also down in control/display unit. Electronic is design by Janne OH1SDR.

see fotos below:

Antennas at Home or sailingboat

- 5 elements  6M   LFA  Yagi  which set up in summertime. ( 7/2015)

- 80M  Dipoli  (11/2017)

- 40M Dipoli .. mod..wideband ant. (11/2017)

- 30M Dipoli  (12/2017)

- 160M longwire with extra tuner (12/2017)

- 3 bands HyEndFed - antenna for 10-20-40, only 11,85m long ( 1/2016).   ( On sailboat )

- 4 pieces EndFed antennas for 10, 15, 17 and 20M , mainly use on boat when sailing.

- 2 bands for 12/17M  Trap-Dipoli ( 2/2016 ), works fine.   (  On sailboat  )

All antennas expect HyEndFed- antenna are homemade.

In picture below is one 10M  endfed-antenna

Birds which live here on my garden dont like me ...... why? wink

I really hope you enjoyed my page. And hope we will meet again. TERVE

Dont hesitate to write me if you want more knowledge of my antenna projekts.
