First licenced some 25 years ago as DD6GI (VHF only,75W),then DH6GI (6wpm 80,15,10m+VHF 150W).Finally did the 12wpm CW test and got DJ2TX.Way back whenplus i was KB6RSX for a while,but thats another story
Quit the hobby for over 10years because of work.Came back 3 years ago.Still an analog guy,but hey "to each his own"
ALL DIRECT QSL's WILL BE ANSWERED 100%.No need for green stamps or such!
But,of course,via the buero is fine with me.
Oh,yeah the pic is from the "la Carerra Panamericana".A classic car race,that i joined as a mechanic for Jochen Mass Shelby Mustang
two times.Boy,was that hot!
50MHZ: IC575H or IC736 7el 11,4 dBD 13m agl
144MHZ:FT847 14el (3,5wl) 13dBD 730W 10m agl
All antennas and amps homemade.
I live in a super flat (and wet) moor area on the dutch border.Perfect takeoff in all directions.On 144MHz beacons can be heard for 600km around.On 50Mhz its 400km.All on daily basis.
So I'm open to each and every sked.
In the process of re-learning CW with my WW2 straight key.So if you hear me,thanks you for the patience!
My other hobby (and Job) are American muscle cars.Here's my little 78 Monza Spyder on rock hard 215's tires:
But nowadays i came back to my beloved Fords.Thats my Mercury Zephyr Pick up conversion.
5L HO engine with 65 ported heads and a 5speed manual etc etc.(what a hellride):
I am a supporter of the DX Code of Conduct:
I will listen, and listen, and then listen again before calling.
I will only call if I can copy the DX station properly.
I will not trust the DX cluster and will be sure of the DX station's call sign before calling.
I will not interfere with the DX station nor anyone calling and will never tune up on the DX frequency or in the QSX slot.
I will wait for the DX station to end a contact before I call.
I will always send my full call sign.
I will call and then listen for a reasonable interval. I will not call continuously.
I will not transmit when the DX operator calls another call sign, not mine.
I will not transmit when the DX operator queries a call sign not like mine.
I will not transmit when the DX station requests geographic areas other than mine.
When the DX operator calls me, I will not repeat my call sign unless I think he has copied it incorrectly.
I will be thankful if and when I do make a contact.
I will respect my fellow hams and conduct myself so as to earn their respect.
Thank you very much+73,
