Biography

PhD in physical and mathematical sciences (since 2015), theoretical physisict and professor assistant in Perm State University.

The first try to get a callsign was in 2004, but some troubles (first of all, financial :) ) made impossible to build or buy any equipment. I've passed new examination to 3rd class in April 2019, and now I'm on air.

Uneffective "spy" antenna at the wall of 16th floor apartment house and 10 Wt power limit from license class make the voice communication at low bands terrible, therefore I prefer to be more active in CW and digital modes (during contests or in really poor propagation). Current CW is not fast, near 8-12 wpm. For digital QSO, I'm using WSJT-X software and its possible modes. But, I dislike FT8 because of its automatization, high temp and message limits. JT9/JT65 looks better: they are like fishing with floats or flies. Nevertheless, these modes permit to experiment with low power and short mobile antenna placed on balcony.

Also, I'm participate in local ARDF events and construct simple useful and useless devices.

Worked DXCCs:

Equipment

Yaesu FT-897D HF/VHF/UHF all-mode transceiver
Yaesu FT-4XR UHF/VHF portable 5W FM transceiver
Tecsun PL-660 AM/SSB/FM RX without any modifications
MFJ-902B manual antenna tuner 80-6 m
Antenna long wire (21 meter - 3m horizontal + 18m free-hanging down from the 16th floor, diameter 0.5 mm /AWG 24/ for stealth from neighbours :) )
Mobile antenna Opek HTV-400B HF/VHF/UHF
Yaesu FP-30 built-in power supply for 897
Straight telegraph key D-117/K4 (smth. typical from Chinese online-shops)
Self-made Jack-Jack-Data mixer with manual audio level regulation for digital modes (yes, I'm using DIG VOX function instead of CAT :) )
