MM0TWX Pete Parisetti, Founder and CEO. After working one DXCC Honor Roll, 5B DXCC and 198 Zones from one country (IK2BHX), 309 countries and 160m DXCC from another country (HB9DSU), and making not far from 150,000 QSOs from a number of semi-rare DX locations, in May 2014 I finally settled in my adopted hometown of Glasgow. Here, I have the fortune of living in a beautiful Victorian villa, which is listed as an historical monument: NO VISIBLE ANTENNAS. As a die-hard DX hunter/gatherer, however, I do not intend to give up. I therefore decided to pursue a cutting-edge, competitive DXing activity using almost invisible, no-gain wire antennas. My personal challenge is to work the DXCC Honor Roll and 2,000 band points using a single wire antenna and CW only. I believe this is hard, but achievable. I do this for my own enjoyment, and to demonstrate - as many have done before me - that a top-level DX activity is possible with absolutely ordinary means, from an antenna-restricted city lot. Since June 2014, I have worked 292 DXCC and 1,637 band points. I am a proud member of the High Speed Club.
OK1RP Petr Ourednik, President. Petr has very kindly accepted to serve as the first, unelected President of the Club for an initial period of one year, after which elections will be organised. Petr comes with an impressive record as a CW-only DXer – particularly on low bands - and membership in top Clubs such as FOC, VHSC and A-1 Operators, amongst many others.
WD7JS Russ Fish, Award Manager. First licensed in 1959, age 13, Russ is now in his my 59th year and radio active every one of them. He holds DXCC from two continents, NA and OC, with P5 confirmed. He also worked and confirmed all 3077 US counties twice, going on #3. Retired after a 40 year career in law enforcement, spanning two continents and 4 US states.
YO3HJV Adrian Florescu, Social Media manager. Adrian has been building radios since the age of 14 and got his license in 1996. He recently got back to CW, which he finds excellent for low-bandwidth communication. He believes that our is a hobby of human contact and nothing is more pleasant to work on equipment and talk at the same time with another radio amateur on the other side of the Earth.
