Radioamateur (English)

PRESENTATION

OZ6EI - Eigil

My name is Eigil Hougaard. I was born December 7 1926 in Aarhus, the second largest town i Denmark, situated in the middle part of Jutland.

I built my first receiver when I was about 6 years old, very simple and primitive and I was able to listen to the local radio stations.

I started as an amateur in 1943, during the Second World War, building a small receiver with one tube, a Philips KDD1, a double triode. It worked. I 1947 I build my second receiver - 4½ tubes super, and now I was really able to start listening in on other amateurs, In 1951 I became a member of the Danish Radio Amateur Associa I In 1963 I at last got my license and started out on 2 meters, 25 Watts input AM and a 6 element Skeleton Slot antenna.

In 1964 I built an HF transmitter. My first QSO was to Germany - I was very proud. In 1965 I moved to the vicinity of Aarhus, bought an amateur built transmitter and a Drake 2B receiver, and then I was really on, but only with a multe-dipole antenna.

After a few years I bought a Heathkit HW100 and got it to work.

In 1971 I moved to a new house - my own house - and set up a little mast (9 meters high) - got up a 3 element yagi, a vertical all band (HF) antenna and started experimenting with sloper antennas - a very interesting item.

I found it was too bad, that I had forgotten all about CW, so I started up with that. My first CW QSOs weren't anything to write about. I wondered why there were anyone who would spend their time on me.

Most of my QSOs today are in CW, RTTY and PSK.

I was very active on our Contest Group OZ9KY, but now retired. The group has made me an Honorary Member and of course I an very proud of that.

MY RIG - my house

My rig is an ICOM IC-756PROII and my Power Amplifier is an ACOM 1000. I am very happy with this equipment: I also have an ICOM IC-7100. I usually use that for 2 m and 70 cm., and I use a Yaesu FT897D in my car.
