I received my licence in 1966, starting with 50 W in CW and AM. My focus is on DX and Contesting. My Contestcall is DA0I
My favourite mode is CW, beside this I have a microphone and chase also newones in RTTY.
I worked as G5DZG (1981), HB0/DK1II (1970ties and 80ties, V5/DK1II, ZL2III, ZL7II, 3D2II, YJ0AII
I organised and was teamleader of the 7O1YGF dxpedition in 2000.
As team member I participated in the following activities:
5A7A, ZL8X, T32C and hope to join some more dxpeditions.
During my time in New Zealand from 2001 - 2004 I had the pleasure to join the Quartz Hill Group and be part of ZL6QH
At home I use in contests DA0I,
I activated DA0OIL in memory of 100 years offshore oil and gas
My rig at home:
K3+P3+ OM-Power Linear amplifier
Antennas: Optibeam OB 16-5 yagi for 10,12,15,17 and 20 m

I am married to Thekla, DK9AI, who has the licence but she is not active on the bands.
I am member of DARC (DOK I08), of HSC (#886), AGCW, EUDXF (board member), GDXF, CDXC. and ROAR (Rotarians on Amateur Radio)
