Radio and electronics as a hobby have been my interests for a long time by now. Somewhere around the age of ten I got stuck, and this led to, among other things, an amateur radio certificate in the end of the 90s. Before that, I was very active as an BC SWL on the HF bands.

I am active mainly on the higher HF bands (10 up to 28 MHz) mostly in digital modes like PSK/RTTY/JT65/JT9/FT8/FeldHell , typically with low power operation with 5 or 10 watts (using my Yaesu FT-817ND or Icom IC-703 QRP rigs). SSB is more rare. I prefer the digital modes as these work well with low power and simple antennas. I simply find it much more fascinating to work DX stations with this set-up rather than doing it with big beams and high-power PAs... Since July 2017 I am also a lucky owner of an IC-7300, I mostly run it at reduced output power though (typically 10 watts). 

Interests are experimenting with antennas and collecting countries towads DXCC diplomas. Currently, I have DXCC diplomas for Digital, Mixed, 30 and 20 meters. In addition, I have the DXCC-QRP on the wall in my small radio shack.

As for antennas, I use dipoles in the attic as I can not put up any outdoor antennas in my home-QTH. Recently, I have also started to experiment with magnetics loops, which are also a very interesting antennas for attic use.

My alternate QTH is located in JO65vw (Linderoed). This QTH is located in the countryside with space for outdoor antennas and lower QRM levels. Antennas at this QTH are also just dipoles so far but I will be looking into other antenna types here as well for experiments.

I am a keen collector of QSL-cards, so your card is most welcome via bureau or direct - always 100% reply from my side (this of course also include SWLs)! I will reply to incomming e-QSLs too, although this is not my preferred way of QSL-ing. I am also a user of LoTW, so that way of confirming QSO with me works too. Still, good old paper-QSLs are the ones I prefer... so if possible please send me your paper-QSL via the bureau. Direct QSL cards are very welcome too; no need to include any green stamps or SASE - just send your card and you will get my card back!

Me and my QSL card on the "QSL Wall" at HAM Radio 2017 in Friedrichshafen.


Homebrew magnetic loop mounted in the attic. Used primarily for 17 meters. Appr. 1 meter in diameter (eight times of 0.4 meter 22 millimeter copper pipes) and tuned into resonance by an ex-USSR 100 pF vacuum capcitor.

Thanks for looking me up - 73s from Sweden,

Lars.
