My name is Axel. I got my first licence in 1969 with the callsign DC1QC. This licence was limited to VHF and UHF Bands only. After I finished my masters degree in RF engineering I upgraded my licence to shortwaves in 1974. Since then my callsign is DF2QC.
From 1997 to 2002 I was inactive on the bands, because I worked as a consultant and project manager in the Philippines.
In 2008 I retired , repaired my old Kenwood TS-180s and started again Ham operations. Meanwhile I bought a Yaesu FT-2000D. I’m focussing on awards and new modes like BPSK and have a lot of fun with Ham radio again. Actually I reached the the DXCC standing of 308 entities. If the shortwave propagation is bad and the weather is fair I play golf.
I’m member of VFDB (a DARC associated radio club) and my DOK is Z14 (only for those ones who are interested).
I use e-QSL (AG) and also collect QSL cards the old fashioned way. Specifically for awards the “old” QSLs are needed . For every QSO I send a QSL card via the bureau and confirm via LoTW / eQSL (AG) at the same time. I answer direct QSL's, but please send me a SAE and US$ 2,- to cover the mailing expenses.
So, hope to hear you on the bands!!!!
