About me

I am licensed since january 1992 and my operator name is Rudi (born 1957). My station is located in Herne (65 m / 213 ft about sealevel). It is a city in the Ruhrarea (North Rhine - Westphalia) about 70 kilometers (approx. 44 miles) north of Cologne.

I like contesting and DXing. From time to time I will stream my activities live during contests. Scroll down for the link. My preferred modes are SSB, PSK, RTTY, Feld Hell, JT9 and JT65-HF.

I am also interested in astronomy, photography and coffee roasting.

Sometimes I will be QRV via Echolink. Just leave me a call. I will appreciate your contact.

You are also invited to sign my weblog on this site. Click the tab "Web" at the top of this page. Thank you.

A big "thank you" goes to DB3DC (Volker) from longwire.de for his hints and expert advice. He spent me much help in antenna questions.
