Ham Member Lookups: 17263



Retired in June 2009. Worked as an Aircraft Engineer. I have been working with most of the Douglas and Boeing Aircraft's as an Avionic's and Power Plant Engineer. Aircraft's as DC-9 Series, MD-80 Series, DC-10, B-737 Classic and New Generation, B-757 and B767. I have also worked with Fokker F28's MK 1000 and 4000. I started my career as an Aircraft Engineer with the Convair 340/440 with the magnifficent P&W 2800 Double Wasp18 cylinder engine. That's an engine with 45 liter piston displacement in EU mesurements! Love the sound of that baby!

Been a ham since 1965.

Work mostly CW.

Main set up as follows: FTdx5000MP and ACOM 2000A, FT-1000MP and ACOM 1010. Antennas are GP for 160/80 (24 m high, 36 m electrical length for 160 by linear loading), GP for 40, and a TET-Emtron TE-56 for WARC and 20/15/10 m ( se picture). For 50 MHz operation a 5 el Yagi is mounted on top of TE-56 and the 9 el for 144. All beams are mounted in a 60' tower (about 20 m high). For receiving on 160/80 I have a K9AY system controlled by a Array Solutions AS-AYL-4.

A TS-590S HF/50 MHz has been purchased for mainly RTTY/JT65/FT8/50 MHZ operation together with an ACOM 1000.  Have to be careful and keep power down on RTTY operation on the WARC bands and 10, 15, 20 m to save the TE-56 Antenna (try to keep power on RTTY down to 500 W). I have blown up a couple of traps with my old TL-922 (sold). Rating for the 6 m yagi is only 600 W. So same caution for that antenna as well.

I have put my old TS-950SDX in use with the ACOM 1000. So I can switch between TS-590 and TS-950.

For some limited operation on VHF I have a FT-897 with Inrad 2.3 KHz and 300 Hz filters installed. Antenna is a 9 el Yagi mounted on top of the HF-beam

I'm also active in some of the major contests with the call SM5C on CW, RTTY and 7S5C on SSB.

I have built an Antenna Switch capable of selecting one of six tranceivers and one of six HF antennas. It is controlled by a SIXPAK control unit. The switch circuit board is manufactured by SM2WMV, Mikael. Famous as SJ2W, owner of one of the biggest Contest station in Sweden, and the switch is actually two 6X1 hooked up together.

The QSL card I use is printed by LZ1JZ.

Received my 5BDXCC No: 7.159 on October 20, 2011 with 30 m and 17 m and 12 m endorsement (8BDXCC).

I have also received and put on the wall behind the rig's the first step of the Challenge Award. Current Challenge status is 1995. Medallion for 1500 has been glued in place on my Challenge Award. Next step is 2000!!
