QSL: I prefer paper cards, buro is ok.
LOTW and eQSL will be done automatically every QSO.

Direct QSL may be faster, please include at least 1 US$ and SAE, with the dollar rate per 2015-03-22.
(German mail company needs 0.80€ or 0.87US$ for an 20g overseas letter, 2015-03-22)

Pse NO IRCs anymore, always trouble at the office.
Cards with IRC will be answered via buro.

The picture in the headline is my QSL-card, pictures are from 2002, still a lot cards in stock.


First licensed in 1979 and spent the 80ies with Meteorscatter on 2m, also TR/AU and other modes off course.
Those days were 2h skeds/5min periods with skeds arranged per letter (or 20m) normal, HSCW 600lpm and more.

In the 90ies I made some 70cm EME, and less 23cm.
Late 90ies square 2m MS activities from EA and F.
1996 I got my 6m licence, that years we needed a special permit, it was not free to everyone in  DL.

But all the years had a lot of breaks due to work, health and QTH reasons.

2011 I got a TIA, but most went back ok in the following 1.5 years.
Now I am partially retired.


These days I am mainly active on 6m/80m/160m DX. On lowbands CW only.

Spent the last years often on lowbands, with some PWR and rx with 6 beverages, between 100m and 250m long.
Each switchable uni-/bidirectional, every 30° a lobe.
Since 2013 I am using an HiZ4-8 array, performing much better, no need anymore for my short bevs.
Its running very well with 80m distance to my vertical.

6m had a lot of breaks between 2008 and 2014 due to antenna faults and other reasons.

I changed my backyard setup in late summer 2014, and put one of my two 7el M² 6m yagis on that
tower, formerly used only as a vertical 27m high for 160m and as the center part of a 
Spitfire for 80m (a kind of a 4sq).
Down that tower there are 120 radials buried, each 15 to 25m long.

I am using this tower with the 6m yagi now also as a vertical for 80/160, feed by a gamma match.

For playing around there is another 16m tower with a Spider 5HD @ 16m.
A third one with easy access for tuning etc. 6m high, for lightweight ants are 10m agl no prob.

The picture below shows left the backyard tower, 70cm x 70cm 12m high, carrying 6m of
Vargada tower and one 6m yagi 7el M² with 8m boom @ 16m agl.
Service is easy with electric winch, and the Vargada section is tiltable to ground level.
To the right there are some of the 8 lowband rxing verticals visible.
Each 7m long fishing pole with CU-wire, diameter of the 8-circle something around 33m.

Direction of the left photo is ~north, the right one is around 50°.
QTH is JO53hh17ul, visible here   http://no.nonsense.ee/qth/map.html?qth=JO53HH17UL&t=s
