Projects & Articles


Here you can find project ideas you can build at home. The most important issue behind every project here is to keep it simple and reproducible at home, without needing expensive test equipment. I hope you can find one that suits your needs. For the projects involving wiring or connection to mains power please be very careful or ask for expert help. Your life is in danger and I don't want to be responsible for any harm or loss.

Here is the idea: Take your family members, your friends or fellow hams from your local club and come in Athens, Greece at the end of this summer.


Stay in a 4-star,  coastline hotel, enjoy the sea and the major sites and attractions of the historic city for 5 days.


Participate in the excursions, taste Greek food, visit the new museum of Acropolis and the temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion.


Take the cruise to the Saronic Gulf to visit the islands.


Every afternoon each day, get involved in the fox-hunt to win the special prize, attend the presentations for ham-radio related matter like Antennae, QRP, Projects, Digital modes, etc. and finally have a drink with a fellow ham from another country during the breathtaking sunset.
