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/MF in CW, QRSS. WSPR and OPERA with abt. 700/50 watts into an inverted L-Antenna ( 32m x 200m)
