Hello There !!  You are tuned in on the homepage of OZ8ABE a.k.a. Bo Soegaard.  This site is made by a radioamateur for radioamateurs.  73 and I hope to CU on the bands.....

I have been HF licensed since early 1991 and worked all countries around the World.

 The general idea with this homepage is to have a log search:  

(Log update: often just delayed 1 day)

If you thought you were in log, but not found it could be a result of a typo, my poor CW reception, I've been to lazy to update this page. Just send me a mail and I look into it. If you need OZ on any bands between 6 and 160m CW, SSB or Digi-mode,  mail me and we can try to set up a sked.

I only enter the first QSO on each band/mode in log unless something rare stuff occur (like new county, aurora condx, mobile operation). Cards will be send 1 or 2 times a year to the OZ bureau from here.  

QSL sure via the bureau (from 2 to 7.000 every year) unless:
1) You said you don't QSL via the bureau.
2) I found unconfirmed from year 2012 or before and don't want to bore you with cards anymore

QSL also ok direct with a SASE to Bo Soegaard, Storlingevej 10, DK-4700 Naestved, Denmark.  It takes $ 5 to send a letter outside Denmark (no wonder why no one sends direct/snail mail from Denmark anymore).  

Latest news on 60m in OZ:

I'm using Yaesu FT-2000, 1/4 wave sloper fed in 22m and 1 kW with several beverage antennas for receiving.   I have worked 190 DXCC entities on the "new" band.  Since June 1. 2012 all OZ's with HF licens have got permission to use from 5.250-5.450 (VFO, not channals) with 1 kW and all modes.  60m is not the band to pick if you want to hunt all DXCC entities, but it's a fun band.  In terms of propagation 60m is like taking the best from 40 and 80m and mix it.  I've got SWL reports from all over the World on 60m.  Now also running FT8 on this band (40W), it have nothing to do with DX'ing and it takes no skills at all.

Finally the Optibeams came up.  On top OB6-5, below OB15-7.  After the good old Summer log-periodic did break the bom for good.

My TX QTH is about 40 miles/60 km South of Copenhagen near Naestved, still on EU-029 or SJ001 in JO55VF grid..
If you want to see how it looks like in this part of Denmark then check Surroundings in the link area on top of this page.

I'm hunting DX, band modes, IOTA (wkd:1085), Grids on 6m (wkd:1004), US states (still need MT, NE, NV and  SD  on 60m) and counties (wkd: 2189).
10-X number: 54258.
