Hi all

I changed my callsign from TF3CY to TF3T  26th of August 2016. TF3T is my fathers callsign and I'm very proud of continuing his legacy as a active experimental HAM.

My father carried the 24th license in Iceland - was one of the founders of the IRA - Icelandic Radio Amateurs club. He originally carried the callsign TF3SG - that my brother Guðmundur now uses. He got the callsign TF3T in 1980 and was a active ham until he passed away 7 September 2011. 

Here is a picture where my father was helping me make the first 6m EME QSO from Iceland, completed a JT65a QSO with Lance W7GJ

we used a 15m long YU7EF yagi, by the sea 

This is me in my fathers shack - He was probably licenced as TF3SG when the picture was taken. I remeber getting my first electrical shock from those Hallicrafters ;)

Current QSL policy: 

100% reply to direct cards - SAE is a must for prompt reply - postage is also required - I attend to direct cards when I have a bunch ;) - but never longer than 2 weeks.

I'm on LoTW. No other electronic QSL

Buero is now not an option as I'm not part of the local club. 

EME/MS QSL - PLEASE DIRECT ONLY - I QSL 100% back - green stamps appreciated but not neseceary!

Some info from Iceland!

Some updates on EME system - now QRV on 2m EME 

Equipment is K3 + internal XV - home built SSPA - WA2ODO preamp - 4x9 DK7ZB system 

Antenna - this will only be up during summer time - old Yaesu rotor would never survive the harsh winter here in TF

 

Sequencer - Arduino - made for two EME systems + latching relays + 120v control for surplus relays ;)

Quick and dirty rotor controller - K3NG - some transistors (SMD) and then a Aruino Mega + Adafruit LCD

EME shack

Current working cdx:

Just now (Feb 2015) I installed a OB9-5 antenna on a 13m high tower  - seems to be working great!

Using a Elecraft K3 - Kenwood TL922a amplifier - Heil proset+ headset.

 

I have 3 kids - two sons and a young doughter (currently 2 year old) - Live in Reykjavik Iceland.

Profile picture (top right corner) is of me when I was 6 years old in the shack of my father, TF3T !
