Hi there. I was born in 1943, got my licence in 1962. My first station was the National HRO-5 and BC-696 followed by several Heath Kit, Drake TR3, Drake 4B-line, several Kenwood,  Icom and Yaesu. Not long ago I went back to Drake R4C simply because I found its performance is superior. Rich folks use Collins, smart folks use Drake!

My main station is a modified Drake R-4C and T-4XB. Backup is another modified R-4C and T-4XB or T4XC.. Backup for the backup is a Yaesu FT-1000. Latest purchase is a Drake 2B, back in 1962 I couldn’t afford it. Oh, I almost forget, a friend gave me two Drake TR-7 but I still prefer the 4-line.

I also enjoy boat anchor and have two Wireless Set -19. One Canadian Mk III in the shack and one British Mk III for field day. National NC-100XA and a BC-348 (with dynamotor), resently restore are also in my collection.

I try to avoid collecting keys and bugs but ended up with several.  Vibroplex, Harlosa  Cedar Rapids Iowa (1940) Ericsson, SRA and Öller.

Antennas: 2 element quad for 28-14 MHz. Verticals for 7-1.8 MHz with sea-gain. The sea only 200 meter away offers a very good take-off to the west

60 meter operation:
I have now a second term of temporary license for 60m. At present it is still unknown if the Swedish authority will implement 60m in our bandplan (will probably not happen B4 Jan. 2018). The fee for a six moth licence is 300:- SEK, aprox 30 Eu, I am now aloud to use 5351.5 – 5366.5 MHz with 15 watt. I am using my 21 meter vertical with top-hat. This antenna is primarily for 40, 80 and 160m but with a tuner it do 60 as well. I also have various Beverage 100m and 250m. I am mainly active on CW and JT65A.


Vintage test stations:

RX mainly BC-348 and TX BC-696 för 80m, or WS-19.

73 Goran

National HRO-5, Drake-lines

2B or three B, that is the question...

Canadian WS-19

When mobile, brittish WS-19 in the trunk of my Citroen 2CV, 40 and 80 meters
