My name is Karol. I live in the central eastern part of Poland very close to capital of the country. Ours home arrounding big garden (kingdom of my wife) and a few hectars of free agriculture land. So, the place for building antena systems is very good. Of cause first I must receive the permition of my wife, what sometimes is more difficoult like a permition of local administration.
I am 70 years old, from two years retired. Finaly I have a lot of time for my hobbies. So far I have renewed the main tower with 2 antenas for 10 - 20 m bands. The second smaller tower waiting for instalation new antenas (yagi for 50 MHz and vertical for 145 / 430 MHz). Now assembles all the elements to place the antenna on 3.5 and 7 MHz, but the final installation must wait until spring. It will be dipol inverted V with variable loength of arms. We'll see how it will work.
From 20 of Oct. 2015 I can officialy work under my old call SP5AKP, after 20 years of using SQ5BIV. It may happend that somebody will listen my call: SP5AKP/4 mainly in sommer time. Then I'll be worked from my sommer station lokated in Wygryny (north east Poland). I installed there 3 antenas and small Icom 7100, so when will be raining, you can here my call. When the wether is good I prefer spend time on my boat, or drink cool vine with my neighbor on terrace of my house. I have been involved with radios on and off for many years. I've had a periods with high activity and periods when I switched radio only time to time. In last 20 years I worked on Icom 775DSP, on Yaesu FT 847 (satelites), but now from April working on Icom 7850 special anniversary edition. For higher bands Icom 7100 or Icom 7000 can be use. I enjoy making dx contacts all over the world and maybe making a few new friends along the way. I qsl 100%. Please email me with any request. I look forward to many more qso's with your station. 73s.
