I am active on 2 m, 70 cm, 23 cm and 13 cm, my favorite band is 23 cm.
At present I am most interested in bouncing radio waves off spacecrafts to establish two way contacts to other amateur radio stations in the 1296 MHz band.
With Jan, PA3FXB, I could establish contacts in CW, SSB, ISCAT, JTMS and JT9H via reflexions off the Intenational Space Station on 23 cm. The QSOs in SSB and digital modes were the first ever in this modes via ISS Bounce. Other Stations worked are SM7FWZ and PI9CAM.
In December 2015 I had the first ever amateur radio QSO by reflexions on an unmanned spacecraft, OKEAN-O, with PI9CAM, using the 25 m dish of the radiotelescope in Dwingeloo, operateted by Jan, PA3FXB, and the CAMRAS team.
DOK: K53 Mainz-Lerchenberg
23 cm: 3 m dish, 200 W and and a 0.35 dB preamp at the antenna
13 cm: 3 m dish, 75 W and and a 0.4 dB preamp at the antenna
