The skyline of Warsaw (Warszawa) as seen from my QTH in the NW district of the capital city, approx. 5 miles from the very center. Date taken April 2018.


SP5ELA Technical Support Page. Getting Started.



In order to maintain the high standard of operation of the portal, I bought ALPHASSL's SSL/TLS certificate for the next 2 years through the GlobalSign distributor.

Certificate AlphaSSL CA - SHA256 - G2,  SHA-256 with RSA Encryption, DV wildcard for "" domain, expiration date 19.04.2022, 01:36:49. For how much? Gentlemen do not talk about money!

Technological advances are constantly causing costs and problems. JF Corporate, Joomla Template. I wonder if I bought it? Programmers, they're such weird people. Their logic is not the logic of a "normal person." It always causes headaches. The principle "you pay and demand" does not apply here. It's more like being on the battlefield. I've been keeping the server(s) since 1994. The websites on them evaluated from simple text and html records to modern content management systems (CMS).(Eng). SP5ELA

Postęp technologiczny stale implikuje koszty i problemy. JF Corporate, Joomla Template. Ciekawe, że ja ją kupiłem? Programiści, to tacy dziwni ludzie. Ich logika nie jest logiką "normalnego człowieka". To zawsze powoduje ból głowy. Zasada "płacisz i żądasz" nie ma tu zastosowania. To bardziej wygląda, jakbyś był na polu walki. Utrzymuję serwer (serwery) od 1994 roku. Strony www na nich ewaluowały od prostych stron tekstowych i html do współczesnych systemów zarzadzania treścią (CMS).(PL). SP5ELA

The server

server-hpThis website (SP5ELA Technical Support) and domain are installed on the server* of Warsaw DX Club SP5PBE (in the past - Warsaw University of Technology Radio Club SP5PBE).

Our own standalone server is running under OpenBSD system and Apache and is safe. All connections are encrypted under https/SSL layer. And as always, a rule of thumb is: "the server is as secure as the administrator is trained". And at this moment I would like to express my great appreciation to the club server senior administrator SP5DXM, Zbigniew Kossowski, Msc for his support in the process of the portal system transfer and installation. He is the right man at the right place.

On this web page will be published various materials, not necessarily those that can be found elsewhere. In any case, the author of knowing their own time and technical constraints reserves the right to not necessarily immediate update. A man gotta know his own limitations.

SP5ELA Internet portal for some time will be moved to another server using possessed the shorter the domain "" The target domain is "Done".

73 for now and see you later! Maybe on the airwaves.

The portal

The new SP5ELA portal was launched in 2015 as a result of a follow-technological progress. There was a devaluation of the good old standard HTML. Currently, there was the era of mobile technology. My old portal with HTML and frames technology was left for some time. The material will be gradually transferred from the old portal to the new one (new CMS platform). In connection with the positions in organizations associated with amateur radio in Poland, I have a pretty serious time constraint.

The SP5ELA Technical Support site content

The content of this website is almost entirely dedicated to the hobby called Ham Radio. An important element of this hobby is radio communication equipment. On the portal are presented some examples of equipment, mainly from Yaesu. Also selected analysis and performance testing of these devices. The author is not only a fan of Yaesu. In his Ham Radio career author used the devices from different companies. They were transceivers, amplifiers and other devices from companies such as Collins, Drake, Icom, Kenwood, Ten-Tec, and Yaesu.
