Have always had an interest in Radio. Started Short Wave Listening as a boy in the 70's. My father and my uncle are “radioactive” since the 30´s. Later they was licensed in the Wehrmacht, so I learned CW as a very young boy. Took a while to get licensed. Girls, Harleys and other things kept getting in the way ... hi.hi. Finally in 78 I took and passed the extra class exam. I worked my first contact in August of 78 with a new Uniden 2020 Transceiver and a 15m Dipole up in our garden. In 1976 I start my studies at the technical university of Aachen and finished it in 1985. Later I was working for Kenwood Communications as a development engineer for amateur radios in Germany and Japan. I never lost my love for CW but even like to operate in OPERA, WSPR or JT9.
QRV on LF in CW, QRSS. WSPR and OPERA with abt. 700 watts into an inverted L-Antenna ( 22m x 46m)
