Showing my inverted W3DZZ. The water in background is The Baltic Sea - Eastward.
From left: SIEMENS E 312 150 hertz CW filter, DRAKE TR7. Below: DRAKE ANT. TUNER MN 75 and DRAKE VFO RV 7. E 312 is ant. connected to my TR7.
Most of my contacts are made by DRAKE TR7, DRAKE VFO RV7 (the set is from 1978) and original DRAKE ant. tuner MN 75.
The DRAKE TR7 works well, even if the CW filter is 300 hertz.
In DRAKE TR7 it is not possible to use a CW filter smaller than 300 hertz.
I was not qrv between August 1976 - November 2009.
I have since November 2009, worked 299 different entities (countries), 184 confirmed by LOTW, 11 others by paper QSL. all included 195 entities confirmed.
DXCC (CW) with 184 LOTW confirmed entities, latest LOTW qsl in 80 metres is Sri Lanka (4S7VG), latest LOTW qsl in 40 metres is Senegal (6V7S), latest LOTW qsl in 30 metres is Senegal (6V7S).
DXCC (CW) in 40 metres, 198 entities worked, 127 confirmed by LOTW.
DXCC (CW) in 30 metres, 197 entities worked, 109 confirmed by LOTW.
All made by 100 watts and inverted W3DZZ.
In 40 metres CW, within 33 days, I worked all entities in South America, all are confirmed.
My goal is DXCC with 200 entities confirmed by LOTW, and DXCC in 80, 40 and 30 metres.
Power 100 watts, antenna is inverted W3DZZ.
I never use any DX CLUSTER/RBN to find DX - I listen.
I never use a PC in my CW work, I am using my ears, ordinary Vibroplex - or hand key.
Simplex CW is not a disease, nor a mental defect, it's the lifestyle of the real telegrapher.
Try it, u will like it.
CWFE = CW For Ever.
