Hello and thanks for looking me up...

HAM since 1993, call DG9BIP in JO33VM. I started being qrv on Sat's (AO10, AO13, etc.) and doing some VHF/UHF DX (mostly during SAC). Due to license restrictions, I just could listen to HF transmissions using a Kenwood R600 fed by an inverted V. Some times later I was qrv in ATV too.

Equipment in 1998, left picture, bottom to top - right picture shows mobile ATV operation (click on picture enlarges in new window)

Sat

  • Az/El Rotor Yaesu G-5600 controlled via Interface IF100 by InstantTrack running on a 386 computer, SSB PreAmp's 2m/70cm, Maspro 2m/70cm Oscar Hunter

ATV

  • 23cm home made dish with feeder, behind 23cm home made 20W PA in grey housing, 13cm home made feeder

 

In 2002 I went qrt because of job-related reasons and came back qrv in 2010 after moving to my actual qth, now on VHF/ UHF and HF (meanwhile respective license restrictions had been omitted). On 2012-08-15 I changed my callsign to DH9DX.

Due to the high level of man made noise at my qth (S6-8), at the beginning of 2011 I decided to get qrv outside the cities.

I built up the portable rig, packed it into my car and drove out for testing...

After assembling and raising the antenna I powered on the rig and....it beat my expectations - noise level only S1-2! That's it!

So, if you hear me /p on the bands, I'm somewhere in the countryside, enjoying ham radio, the nature and from time to time the sun...
