The transceiver I used up until recently is a YAESU FT-897D along with an automatic antenna tuner made by MFJ feeding a G5RV-antenna.
I now operate an ICOM IC-7600 at my homebase at JN48NS88EE using a GAP Titan DX vertical multiband antenna, installed some 350 m ASL at 2.5 m above street level, rising 7.5 m up to the top.
There is also a holiday QTH (please see the callsign DJ9KAI/P in QRZCQ.com) at JN47BR46VN which is situated some 1.000 m ASL. Here, the antenna setup usually is a G5RV at a height of 12 m above ground but also other antennas are tested.
Since I was 6 years old, I have always been interested in electronics and became a SWL in 1974 focusing on the tropical bands and pirate radio stations on shortwave.
In 2009, I decided to take part in a HAM novice-license training that was hosted by DJ2HL and he excellently prepared the four of us for the examns in June 2009 with best success. My callsign then was DO9KAI.
Exactly one year later, on June 26, 2010, I passed my examn for Class A, again well prepared by DJ2HL !
My profession is architect and I am married to my wonderful wife having three great children, two girls and a boy.
Please also have a look at the fantastic website qrzcq.com where I also have an account and actually keep the logbook synchronized with my UCXlog at home.
