First about QSL-ing:

I will answer all QSL requests, via bureau or direct, if the said QSO is in my log. If you choose direct, please pitch in 2 USD or an IRC to cover return postage. Don´t forget the SAE. Makes life easier. Anything missing, reply card goes via bureau.

About myself:

Born in Reykjavik on April 3rd 1950. Employee of the Customs since 1973. Now retired. Joined the Icelandic Radio Amateurs in 1988 and got my license the same year. Been on the excecutive board of our club for some years and also QSL-manager. Now retired from that activity. Activity is mostly on CW, but in recent years also turned to RTTY, SSTV, PSK and PHONE. Been in many of the major contests since 1993, only using 100 watts out. I take pleasure in handing out points and multipliers to those who need it.

Today my logs are on QRZ.com, LoTW, eQSL.cc . and Club-Log.

The equipment:

Current equipment is a Chinese X1M qrp radio and an Alinco DX-SR9 recently added. Antennas are a dipole antenna for 160, 80 and 40m from Alpha Delta. The Cobebb is out of commision after a storm. In place of the Cobwebb I put up 3 monoband dipoles like the ones pictured below on a boom. Looks like a beam antenna. It surprises me how well these simple antennas work. A dualband Adi AT 600 handheld and an Alinco DR 135 are for local VHF/UHF use. An old Heathkit keyer and Bencher paddles with home made keyer come in handy. Winkeyer is for computer keying. Computer in the shack is an old Dell Optiplex 755 with Windows 10.

My QSL-card.

Below are two cards I treasure very much. Power was about 4,5 watts and the antenna was end fed 1/2 wave for 160 m,home made. Transmitter was a kit from CM Howes in England, home assembled, crystal controlled.


Antenna under test. 20 M dipole made from two mobile sticks and modification where the "V" is for 20 m and the straight one for 15 m. Separate cables to each from an antenna switch on my desk, just under the roof. Small TV rotator under the roof also. I am running 50 watts to this on digimodes and 100 watts cw with some interesting results. The bottom picture shows the newest configuration. It is not grossly visible from the neighbours and it seems to have low windload. As those are made from mobile sticks they may survive 100 mph.
