thanks for looking me up - greetings from Leipheim - a small town in Bavaria, approx. 20km east of Ulm.
If we had a qso - many thanks and I hope we meet again on air. QSL is 100% sure via bureau or EQSL. Down that page you can check the qso in my online- logbook if you like.
For those who need, my is DOK T02 - OV Günzburg . I'm member of various CW-Clubs, needless to mention that this is my favourite mode.
Currently I'm most interested in low bands:
Although I'm limited in space for setting up a huge 160m antenna within a residential area, I tried to get QRV with this setup: 13m tube mast with loading coil at 10m and approx. 30m wire, winding around the mast with spaces between the turns of approx. 3-4cm. The antenna got a Z of approx. 9 Ohm, matched to 50 Ohm with a simple L/C Match. Though a very good ground is required, I'm using only 2 earth rods with this antenna. It proved working around EU and I even caught some DX-Stations.
Furthermore I got a lot of fun with /mobile operations. The picture shows a 4m whip antenna (old military one from flea-market) fed with ah-4 automatic coupler mounted in trunk and IC-7000 trx. Works from 3,5 to 28 MC, 160m with loading coil only. A really successful set-up, worked e.g. JA, PY, CX, P4, K, UA9, 9M2, ZS6, VR2, 8P and even the BY1RX/4 DX-ped on 20m upwards. (In CW-of course, what else!?)
In April 2012 I`ve had a wonderful /m qso on 17m with Luke VK3HJ, more than 16.000km with 100w and a 2.7m mobile ant-absolutely great, thanks Luke for 569 on a Hexbeam!
