I’m actually 40 years old, born in Italy and I lived for some years in Ireland. Since 2012 I am a permanent resident of Cyprus with the call sign 5B4ALX and the special contest call H2X.
My main interests are DX, Contest and making DXpeditions.I have one radio station in Italy where I can use the call IZ4AMS and my main radio station in Cyprus which I can use remotely when travelling on the job. All the information about me, my job, my company, contest results and planned DXpeditions are available on my website www.5b4alx.cloud which has more than 5000 visitors per month.
My next DXpedition planned for 2019 will be E6ET, Niue Island. All information on my website will be shared with EUDXF for sure.
Best 73s, Alex, 5B4ALX
The board and officers of the EUDXF for some time have a Whatsapp group that is frequently used for sharing “HOT” DX information. Since we think that the power of such a group is is in the number of members the idea came up to start an EUDXF Whatsapp group open to all members of the EUDXF. That has already happened and on the website is a form what you can use to sign up for this group. (you can find the form in the right sidebar)
The language within the group will mainly be English but it is to be expected that there will also be quick exchange of information in other european languages 😉
Our webmaster Alex PA1AW will manage the group.
OH2ID, Tomi Helpiö, Espoo / Lohja, Finland
Born in 1966, I was licensed in 1982 and received the callsign OH3ID. In 2011 I got additionally the callsign OH2ID which places my station more clearly to the Helsinki-metropolitan area. My QTH is in Lohja, about 60 km west from Helsinki.
I´m especially interested in working in the HF-bands using CW. I also enjoy the occasional contest. I´m very much interested in the amateur radio technology. I´m the technical editor of the Finnish amateur radio magazine “Radioamatööri”.
As equipment I use an Elecraft K3 with P3, and my antennas are a Kelemen dipole for 80/40/30 m and verticals for 30…10 m. For 40 m band I’ve got additionally a turnstile antenna enabling circular polarization. For keying I use, besides a computer running the N1MM+-software, a Begali Magnum paddle (#34) and a Microham Microkeyer II. In 2015 I got interested in digital modes and I’m active especially in PSK and JT-modes, now also in FT-8.
