Biography

Licensed in the '80s, operated for several years, then took about 20 years break from the hobby. Resumed activity in 2011 after watching a YouTube video showing someone operating portable in HF.

I started exploring D-Star in 2013, mostly working through a licensed low-power access point that I kept at home. I also ran and maintained a cloud based reflector (the old XRF running on a VPS). My interest in networked ham-radio quickly faded around 2016, once I reached the conclusion that ham-radio networking has more to do with telephone networking than amateur radio.

These days (2019) I am having fun in HF, using SSB and data modes. Olivia is my favourite data mode however I am keen to use other MFSK modes, PSK31 and MT63. My strong interest in Olivia stems from its capabilities and resilience in poor propagation conditions. In Jan 2019, close to the depth of solar minimum I managed a 45-minute QSO with a station in Australia. Also, Olivia users tend to be the kind of ham who appreciate long chats - this is great, though it admittedly tends to push QSOs well into the night... use Olivia at your own risk, it's addictive!

Finally, I like experimenting with various wire antennae, magnetic loops, etc..

That's pretty much it - definitely enough to keep me busy!

A few handmade baluns and ununs

Other than that, one antenna analyser and some other clutter that helps me putting a signal out there in HF.
