I was licensed in 1992 as UA3VVB. My first ham radio experience I got in the club station of RK3VXV located next to the school I visited (80`s). Many thanks to the club`s chief Victor ex.UA3VBU nw. RW3VU for discovering this ham radio world and assistance in my first QSOs in far 1988 year. During 1997-2005 years I was not "radioactive", therefore, so long timeout left behind. I like to work CW&SSB. My station`s equip. mostly of Yeasu (840, 817ND and very old 2700RH for FM VHF/UHF).
Three ele.Yagi TH3-MK4 I mounted up on the roof about 70ft over the grnd in the October`08(just at the date of celebrating my 36`s birthday). Wire antenna (dipole) for 80 metersband I added to my working condx. during the 2010 summer time, and I made a vertical 1/4 wavelength for 7MHz which was erected in October. I use for CW operations K1EL WinKeyer (Cool keyer, indeed, TNX, Steve). When Steve`s WK Kit was assembled I made a "mate" for my WinKeyer. Look on the picture above. I finished to build this dual lever paddle, and friends took it away. "You`ll have made another one" -they said. Actually, I enjoy chasing DX for DXCC award and I take part in the contests (mostly CW). I do my efforts in the QRP work, yes, sure the first place RSGB 21/28 2009 contest in QRP section CW I proud of. Well, this is my QRP set on the picture.
If you are collecting cards for Russian Districts Award Program, here is area of RDA*VL-07* - Kovrov town. It stays on the bank of the river Klyazma - 170 miles away from Moscow, sometimes I operate from *VL-19* RDA area, sometimes from other places around my native town.
I`m a member of Vladimir Radio Club and Vladimir Contest Group and AGCW-DL too. I QSLL 100% via Bureau/Direct and in addition to the real QSL exchange I upload my log to the ARRL server into LoTW system (aprox. twice per month). Club log requests also are welcome or easy way to drop a message to my e-mail for QSL card for contacts.
I`m a QSL manager for Victory 67 memorial station RP67KO (May`5th-9th, 2012)
and Victory 69 Memorial RP69VD callsign (May`3rd-9th, 2014)
Hope to meet you on the bands. Yes, thanks for the visiting my page on the ZED.
73 de Alexei UA3VVB.
P.S. I made this new CW paddle. Just something close to Kent dual lever Keyer. Chrome covered steel base and brass body has embedded four ball race bearings. And this is the front side of my new QSL card . And another one paddle I gave away to friends.
My cat always helped to build antenna`s hardware. Just done new light-weight spiderbeam hub for field operations.
Daughter Victoria and I walk in forest.
