I got my HAM-radio license in 1976. The
first years I worked mostly VHF/phone and didn't get
my first HF station until 1980. At that time most of
CW was forgotten, and therefore I have worked only SSB
at HF until 1996 when I got interested in digital communication
and started with PACKET and PACTOR-II. I'm now most
active on PACKET and APRS, and
also SYSOP at our local mailbox at LA1H,
the Harstad group of NRRL.
The equipment here is:
- Kenwood TM-D700E dualband VHF/UHF.
- T7F UHF Data-radio on PACKET
9k6 and 19k2.
I'm running a WinFBB v.
7.00i mailbox and node with (X)net
v. 1.32 on a SYMEK
TNC3S here with callsign LA2MV.
I have daily forward to/from the Finnmark, Troms and Nordland
county PACKET network in northern Norway.
1994 I was at
Svalbard and run some contacts from as JW2MV.
