Hi there!

Tom is my name (or TomTom if you like). I was born in 1984, 33 years old. I live in a litle town called Sala about 100km north of the capital Stockholm, with my girlfriend Pernilla. I work as an electrician in a company called Sala Elektriska.

 Early summer at my QTH. (You can see a new picture with the Optibeam OB9-5 a bit lower on the page)

Working conditions:

HF: Kenwood TS-870

Kenwood TL-922 HF linear amplifire.

Optibeam OB9-5, 9 element yagi for 10, 12, 15, 17 20m band. (Picture belowe.)

Optibeam OB2-40 2 element yagi for 40m

G5RV as an inverted V for the other bands

Active in SSB, PSK-31 and RTTY. Unfortunately my CW is almost gone, its a shame :/

VHF/UHF: Icom IC-27-30 and a GP antenna.

I have an 18m versatower.

Member of SSA.

 Winter day my QTH, a new picture with the Optibeam in the tower.

I got my first licence in 1999 as SH5AEU. Then upgraded to a class 1 licence, after CW-test in 2000. I was only active in about 1-2 years after that and sold all my radio equipments in the fall of 2002. Cant really remember why, but I think I had met a girl or something at that time.. Then I did my military service, moved to my own apartment, started working and that pretty much all. QRT forever? No.

In 2013 we started to renovate my grandparents house located beside my parents house. The result became very good and me and my girlfriend moved in to the house early 2014. Pretty soon I felt that it was time to be QRV again. After a couple of months I had bought back almost the same things I had sold in 2002. The building lot is big so there is much space to put up antennas. I hope i can be QRV forever this time. Thats my story. :)

Hope to meet you on the bands!
