About me :
I made my first licence in April 2009 (E-Class with DO6SD) and upgraded in December 2010 to Class A. Radio was always a passion to me (many years I made DX on the 11m Band and was an enthusiasts as SWL'er ) and finally I put the crown of all with the HAM licence. When the time it allowed I try to catch new DXCC's (290 DXCC worked) and IOTA's (410 IOTA worked) and of course new Radio Friends in the whole world. The short wave is my "playground" hi and I try on 8 bands my best luck. My antenna situations for the low bands are not the best (beaming south/north) but it's always better to have a fullsize wire in the air as somewhat shortened . So far I try to use in turns homebrewed Loops, Dipoles and Vertical Quarter Waves for the 30m, 40m and 80m band, just what my little garden will bear so and as long as my neighbors still smiling . The 6m Band is for me interesting as well so my first steps have been made with my homebrewed 2 Element Quad out from 4m hight into EA8 with 50 Watts input, that was my farthest distance. 160m Band isn't possible because of too little space for reasonably suitable antennas.
My passions belong to contesting and DXing. My favourite band is the 10m band. It is amazing what opportunities it offers, also within the eleven-years cycles.
I hope we meet us soon on the frequency - where it even may be ;-)
