I work as an engineer for medical ultrasound diagnostic systems service and repair in the largest clinic of Lithuania in Vilnius. I got interested in radio in my youngster age in early 60's. It was a great wonder to listen to music coming out of a transistor pocket radio made by your own hands in this time. I received my SWL callsign UP2-038-188 in 1970. I have enjoyed much of time listening to the amateur radio since then. My first 10 watts broke into the air with the call UP2BCB in April of 1974. I have received a lot of QSL cards and some awards confirming my contacts. I use the callsign LY2BCB since 1996. The greatest interests for me in free time are my transmitter keying, making small radio projects with soldering iron and spending time with computer. I have made this web page myself and it does not look like I should stop along this way
My home station receiver is a military one of R-399A type. This is up conversion synthesized receiver with frequency cover from 1 to 32MHz. The first IF is about 45MHz. The third IF is 215KHz with bandwidth selectable in steps: 0.3KHz, 1KHz, 3KHz, 4KHz, 6KHz and 10KHz. The received frequency is set with use of push buttons or with rotary knob in steps of 10 or 100Hz. The receiver is not bad but rather big one. My transmitter is running about 100Watts( two valves output stage). The transmitter tuning is receiver synchronized. In time being I use two short wave antennas. The first one is a wire delta loop antenna about 84mtrs in perimeter hanging horizontally about 30mtrs high. It is fed by 75Ohm coax cable of about 27mtrs long( 1/2 wavelength phase follower for amateur bands). The ferrite balun is ending the cable. This antenna works not bad on 80, 40, and 20 meter bands. The next antenna is vertical 5/8 wavelength for 28MHz. It is fed by 75Ohm coax cable with matching coil at the end. It provides really good job in transmit but sometimes a little bit noisy in receiving. My CW keyer is homemade with CMOS. My microphone is condenser.
I use military TVRX R-143 for outside portable work. It runs about 8 watts to dipole or LW antennas mostly used.
I use Alinco DJ-180 FM handy station for local and via repeaters contacts.
My computer is Pentium 100MHz, 64MB RAM, 8.4+1.1GB HDD. I use WINLOG32 ver.1.3 by G0CUZ logging program and Zakanaka ver.Beta 16 for PSK31 contacts.
