First about QSL-ing:
I will answer all QSL requests, via bureau or direct, if the said QSO is in my log. If you choose direct, please pitch in 2 USD or an IRC to cover return postage. Don´t forget the SAE. Makes life easier. Anything missing, reply card goes via bureau.
Born in Reykjavik on April 3rd 1950. Employee of the Customs since 1973. Now retired. Joined the Icelandic Radio Amateurs in 1988 and got my license the same year. Been on the excecutive board of the club for some years and managing the QSL bureau since 1989. Also manager for the various club station calls at the same time. Activity is mostly on CW, but in recent years also turned to RTTY, SSTV, PSK and PHONE. Been in many of the major contests since 1993, only using 100 watts out.
Today my logs are on QRZ.com, LoTW, eQSL.cc . and Club-Log.
Current equipment is Alinco DX70 TH, Icom 703 plus and an old Kenwood TS 830 S, also an Alinco DX-SR9 recently added. Antennas are a dualband dipole antenna for 40 and 80 meters. It can also be used on 15 and 10 meters. There is also a 5 band Cobweb antenna, useable on 14, 18, 21, 24 and 28 MHz. The antennas are home made. A dualband Adi AT 600 handheld and an Alinco DR 135 are for local VHF/UHF use. An old Heathkit keyer and Bencher paddles with home made keyer come in handy. Winkeyer is for computer keying. Computer in the shack is an old Dell Optiplex 755 with Windows 10.
Below are two cards I treasure very much. Power was about 4,5 watts and the antenna was end fed 1/2 wave for 160 m,home made. Transmitter was a kit from CM Howes in England, home assembled, crystal controlled.
Antenna under test. 20 M dipole made from two mobile sticks and modification where the "V" is for 20 m and the straight one for 15 m. Separate cables to each from an antenna switch on my desk, just under the roof. Small TV rotator under the roof also. I am running 50 watts to this on digimodes and 100 watts cw with some interesting results.
