Welcome to my website

Born in 1947, marred in 1973 and retired from work in the year 2002. I was licensed as a Radio Amateur operator at late 1969. Antennas are part of this fantastic hobby. Antenna construction, set-up and tuning are my number one favorite. I enjoy DXing in CW. Nearly all my QSOs are in this mode. When digital modes were getting popular, I decided to go digital. Start using modes such as SSTV, RTTY and later PSK31. Also sending pictures with EasyPal and WSJT software is a great fun.
My antennas are all homemade. Presently I have two on the roof. A 7MHz dipole which I use also on 21MHz as a three half waves, and a 14MHz Off Centre Fed Vertical. In my opinion the vertical is very good for DX and apart from it's low angle of radiation it is not a directional antenna. It covers 360 degrees. I find it a little bit noisy on receive. A two S points of noise is quite a lot when receiving a DX station.
