My name is Mike (Mykhailo in Ukrainian lng). I was envolved in Amateur Radio thanks to my father "Alex", aka UR5ECV. Owing father's persistence it was a hard attempt for me (and him too) to learn Morse Code being 10 years old... But two years later, in late 1988's, I finally ran into the air with my rather slow CW calling "CQ CQ..", and then collecting first calls. At that time our family radioshack consisted of old-time 200W military TX+RX called R-250 (not transceiverized) and a simple LW antenna. Nowadays it mostly collects dust at the summer-house; more info about this here (in Russian only).
It had passed pretty much time till I've taken a long awaited exam and got my ever 1st class licence, in Sept.1998. I usually work on 80M-10M using my favourite mode CW at about 76.7%, SSB at 16.9%, and the rest is with Digital modes (after Clublog stats).
Current equipment setup
PC Interface: RigExpert Plus USB-Interface
For /A and /P operations I use Buddipole (Rotary Dipole by W3FF) antenna and my beloved hot IC-7k. That's how it usually done (hi!):
... when use "portable"
...and UR7EZ/A operating...
Not only for Data modes but also for major contests I use RigExpert Plus interface. For contests I prefer TR4W logger (thanks to Dmitriy, UA4WLI) and N1MM Logger, and for regular logging I use DXKeeper from DXLab suite. For TRCVR control I frequently use TRX-Manager (the best in its class! Big "thank you" Laurent, F6DEX).
Log data and OQRS
To check if you are in my log (also for contest QSOs) check it within ClubLog.
