Biography

Hello to all radioamateurs in the world,
my name is Kostas and i live in Salamina island and i am a retired Hellenic Navy Radio Officer.
I am on air since 2002 . QRV mainly in CW,but work RTTY and PSK. Power 5 - 100 watts.

A few words for CW, is amazing when operators can copy CW at signal to noise ratios less than 0 dB!!!

Also there are some additional QTH:

a) Makrirrachi village outside the city of Volos (SV4) and one in city of Volos.
b) In Spetses isl. (SV8) EU-075.

I was also for one year 2009-2010 in Skyros island (EU-060).

Salamina has all the features that make it a unique and a suitable destination for hiking. The island, has a rich network of hiking routes. Some of them are marked. Routes vary in terms of their degree of difficulty due to the terrain. Some routes follow old rural paths, crossing ravines and end on beaches. Other routes end up in archaeological sites or impressive observatories. Walking along the paths of Salamina, you will have the opportunity to get in touch with the roots, history, natural beauty and culture of the island. Unique beaches, archaeological sites, Byzantine monuments, a unique cave, windmills, a virgin landscape, country churches, are some of the things elements you will encounter during your trekking.
Ideal seasons for hiking are autumn and spring, as high Summer temperatures can make it a bit difficult for you. Hiking in Salamina is a journey into space and time. We invite you to enjoy this trip so as to get to familiarize yourself with the most beautiful and authentic side of the island!!!!!
SALAMIS ISLAND... LIVE UNFORGETTABLE MOMENTS OF ADVENTURE IN YOUR PARADISE!!!

and some infos abt:
German Telegraph Key Junker M.T. Honnef/Rh D.B.G.M.
In 1926 engineer and marine captain Joseph Junker founded a factory in Berlin in which he made radio equipment as well as equipment for submarines. One of his earliest products was the Junker telegraph key. At the end of World War II, Junker moved the factory to Honnef just before Joseph died in 1946. The company bearing his name, however, still produces fine morse keys to the present time. The later model above says "Honnef/Rh" on the base and is called the "M. Early versions have a gap adjustment screw with micrometer sprung ball indented adjustment with a numbered top face This model has no numbered face but still with ball indented adjustment modern versions have just a nitrile 'O' ring giving friction to the screw thread.
