Home Town Akureyri


My Station


Í.R.A. Awards


I got my Amateur Radio license in October 1977. The license is no: 125 in Iceland.
The callsign was TF5BW and that was my callsign until June 2008 then my callsign changed to TF5B.

My main interest in amateur radio has always been DX and Amateur Radio Awards.
I have worked about 295 DXCC countries and have about 1.300 amateur radio awards.

From 1984 to 1994 I was fairly active but from 1995 to 2008 there was not much activity.
From 2009 activity started again and in 2010 I did rebuild my station repairing antennas an rotator and buying new gear.

I got interested in Digimodes in early 2011 and have mostly been on RTTY, which is my favorite mode, also PSK, JT65 and FT8since.
I did set the goal to work 100 DXCC Entities in 100 days and did just that. In October 2011 the Digital DXCC Award No: 3.010 was on the wall in my shack.

QSL via bureau is OK and all cards are answered the same way.
SWL QSL cards are welcome.



Please note, that if you had a QSO when you were using a club station call sign, that does not mean that you can automatically request a second QSL for your personal call sign. A QSL can only be written out if it was logged separately (with your call sign).
