I am in the process of retiring this over 15 year old website

New site will be blog-based, and located here : la5eka.blogspot.no




See stations heard by my QS1R running CWSkimmer on
Reverse Beacon Network
Decoding all CW stations heard by my FD-4 Windom on 80, 40, 30, 20, 17, 15 and 10 meters simultaneously.

I was inactive from mid 2005 to mid 2007 and all QSL and QSO'ing was put temporarily on hold. Now in Oct 2007 things have settled down at last, second home bought in two years :). Have antennas up for all bands, a R8 vertical, FD-4 Windom, MA5B mini beam and a Create Log Periodic for 50 and up. Log search for my /MM operation from a Norwegian research vessel is now available here.

Been a licensed radio amateur since 1996, when I got my technical license(LC4PAT). Early June 2000, I upgraded to Class A license. Yes, I've learned The Code, and yes it was easy, and yes I use it a lot. Ever heard of the Koch method ? It took me six weeks with half an hour training every second day. Piece of cake, really !

I am active on all bands up to 438MHz. Mostly QRP on HF, CW only. I have worked over 150 countries now with my 5 Watts and attic dipole or 26.5m wire. See some of my hard earned QSL cards from Japan, Phillipines(ssb), New Zealand, Angola, Singapore, Christmas Islands, Australia, Antarctica, Mauritius and others . Actually it's nothing to brag about, since 5 Watts is only 13db down from 100 Watts. That's a 57 instead of a 59 in real speak, no big deal.

I also have some nice QSL cards from my 144MHz and 430MHz activity, where best VHF DX is the island of Capri in Italy, 2111Km. See the card My VHF activity has dropped lately due to inadequate antenna possibilities, and RFI trouble due to other peoples cheap TV antenna amplifiers.

My log is online and updated as often as possible. You can also see if (and when) I received your QSL card, or perhaps check if (and when) I sent you one.

Outgoing QSL's. I sent over 2200 cards to the bureau during 2003, for QSO's dating back to June 2000. Sent about 1000 in January 2003, 5-600 in April, and 700 in August and about 500 in December. February 2005 I sent out approximately 1400 cards, mostly for QSO's made in 2004. Now in August 2008 I sent out 1529 cards via bureau for qso's made in 2005 to 2008. The bureau service can be extremely slow, and cards for rare countries are not forwarded to receiving bureaus more than once a year. I try to send a card to every radio amateur I have contact with, one for each band/qso as well, if either part needs the card. So if you are waiting for my QSL card, it's on it's way.
