Hi, my name is Eivind
Licensed since 1973 (Class A)
Home QTH: Roedovre (near Copenhagen), Denmark.
Locator: JO65FQ ITU Zone: 18 CQ Zone: 14
I have been off bands since 1983, but after 32 years and as retired I am now back to
“The best hobby in the World” in 2015 with great joy and a lot of fun.
IC-7300 transceiver for HF, mainly controlled from HRD via CAT interface.
Yaesu FT 8900R for 6m, 10m and VHF/UHF bands.
Baofeng UV5R for the VHF/UHF bands.
Acom 1000 Amplifier
LDG AT-1000ProII Autotuner
KK7UQ IMD meter
Bird Wattmeter model 43
ASUS 2.4 GHz laptop / Win 10 Pro 64.
Software: MMSSTV v.1.13a / MMTTY / Ham Radio Deluxe v.6 / WSJT-X / KG-STV / SIM31_SIM63 /
HF antenna is a homemade (13,8 / 27,7) meters OCF dipole (Windom) with a 4:1 current balun, working on 80, 40, 20, 17, 12, 10 and 6 meters.
The SWR is better than 1:2.0 on all these bands. 30 and 15 meters are also covered using my LDG AT-10000ProII ATU. The antenna is mounted as an inverted V with the feeding point placed
6 meters above ground and the (folded) wires ending 4 meters above ground.
On the same mast I have a 1/2 wave vertical antenna for use on 10 meters, and a 5 elm. ZX6-5 Yagi for the 6m band, driven by a Yaesu rotator type G-650C. A dipole antenna for 60 meters is the last arrived antenna on this mast.
On a new mast I have a Midland GP X-50 antenna for VHF/UHF bands and a Turnstile TA-1 antenna for image reception from various weather satellites etc. The Antenna Covers 137 - 152 MHz.
For the moment I run a lot of RTTY (FSK), BPSK, SSTV and FT8/FT4 QSO’s on the bands. BPSK Tx quality is controlled with my KK7UQ IMD meters.
