Biography

PhD in physical and mathematical sciences (since 2015), theoretical physisict; 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 power limitation from license class make the voice communication terrible, therefore I prefer to be more active in CW and digital modes.

For digital QSO, I'm using WSJT-X and test versions of JTDX software and their possible modes. Even though I dislike FT8 because of its automatization, high temp and message limits, I think it is impossible to ignore FT8 today. Sometimes, I use JT9, JT65 and T10. These modes permit to experiment with low power and short mobile antennas placed on balcony or extra-short random wires. In addition, I'm trying PSK.

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

I have electronic QSL accounts: LoTW, eQSL and Hamlog, but I will be thankful for paper QSL. The paper cards more enjoyable. I accept direct as well as bureau without any fees.

Worked DXCCs:

Equipment

RIGs:
Yaesu FT-897D HF/VHF/UHF all-mode transceiver, with FP-30 built-in power supply and 500 Hz CW filter
Yaesu FT-857D HF/VHF/UHF all-mode transceiver (mounted in the car)
Yaesu FT-4XR UHF/VHF portable 5W FM transceiver
Tecsun PL-660 AM/SSB/FM RX without any modifications
• Couple of "Altai-3.5" ARDF receivers, issued in 1990 and 2019, they are effective to listen 80m band.

Antenna:
• "Partisan" long wire :) About of 21 meter of 0.5mm wire from balcony along the windows of my flat (just a luck, all the windows on the one long wall are mine), maximal distance from wall - 1 meter, and 2 meter counterpoise; this stuff with tuner works well enough at 40m and higher, 80m are also possible but only nearest correspondents (the result are in my logbook after 2020 May 7th)
• MFJ-902B manual antenna tuner 80-6 m
• Mobile antenna Opek HVT-400B, for HF and CB (mounted in the car)
• Mobile antenna Nagoya NL-770R, for 144/430 MHz (mounted in the car)

Additional:
• 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
• MFJ-1040C narrow band active preselector
