Anybody needs a QSL Manager?



About 4 years ago I decide to come back on my  CW operations enjoy it very much with help of excelent paddle from VIBROPLEX Company. Today I've 1 Square Racer and 1 Iambic Deluxe for my operations, I don't want other keyer, I'm really satisfied with this great piece of art.

I operate in all bands from 10 to 160 Meters. I decide to to spend many time on WARC Bands for Asia and Stateside . Conditions were very good specialy at afternoon. During the night I've see big difference from my normal Qth in Portugal and from Hladov on Low Bands. 

When you have all conditions for workind DX it's more easy you adaptation. If you have everything mount correctly  antennas, computers, you don't have to hurry with SWR and other normal problems. So it's very confortable working change bands and modes with all facilities . It's very important maintain all things in good operation conditions.

I've see some diference from here Central Europe and South of Europe.                                                                                                        Unfortunatelly in Portugal I don't have the large country space for antennas that I've in Hladov in meadle of the Nature   near of the forest.                                                                                                      

I'm very happy on this privilege to be the 1st CT with callsin on Czech Republic, and I'll trie to difnificate OK8 Prefix not only in Czech Republic but on all over the world.

I've great memories from this operation, and I'll be back next year for sure.

In May of this year. Czech Republic will be a new member on EC European Comunity, I wish all the best for future for this country.

SPECIAL NOTE: Be attention for DUPES QSo's: 

Unfortunately there are some operators would like to make DUPES, it means work more than once at same band. This is bad, because when these operators work for the second time on the same band perhaps there are others without that possibility to work at least one time. 

We're trying to pass the message for those operators, that is necessary to listening before calling and check the diary or the log.

One of the most important things for amateur radio is Friendship and Courtesy. Working a DXpedition several times on same band and don't give the chance for others is completely out of Cortesy!
