• SV1LIQ Personal HamRadio Page

    My name is Fokion Stavropoulos and I am an active Ham Radio Operator, especially on digital modes.

    I live in Marousi, Athens Greece.

    My locator is KM18vb

     

    This hobby goes back many years, since 1983, as a high school student who has always been curious about physics and electricity.

     

    After spending some years in "piracy" i completely cut off the use of radio, until 2005 when i decided to return as an active radio amateur.

    I got my first licence as SW1LIQ and after 2 years I upgraded to SV1LIQ which is my current callsign.

     

    I spend time daily working new stations on air especially on FT8 lately which is fast and easy to confirm.

     

    Personally, I will eventually upload all HF contacts to LoTW, eQSL.cc, ClubLog and QRZ.com. I don't normally log VHF/UHF contacts, but if you ask me to log it while we're on the air, I will, and I will confirm it

    I will confirm by paper QSL card if I get one from you via the same path (Direct or Bureau), or if the QSO was especially memorable.

    (No money needed or IRCs)

    Thank you Jim (SV1LHZ) for sharing your time and knowledge!!
