I am born 1948 in the port city of Emden at the coast of the Northsea, not far away from the border to the Netherlands. I got my radio license 1967 and since that time I prefer to operate in  CW or other digital modes, mainly with reduced power (QRP). Due to local restrictions I only can use two dipole antennas, one  2x16 m dipol (inverted V), feeded with a 400 Ohm ladder line and a symetric antenna tuner and one  dipole at the roof of our house for 20 - 10 m.

At home I use the following HF transceivers:
- Kenwood TS 590S
- Icom IC 703 (QRP)
- HF home made transceiver "Der Solf"

 I´m retired after more than 35 years of work as an electronic engineer on a local naval shipyard.

------------  --------------

Below you can see a picture of the old harbour of Emden, called the "Ratsdelft".
Three old ships reached here their final destination port and became popular museum ships.
The left is the former rescue cruiser "Georg Breusing" from Borkum Island (JO33JN),
the middle one is the old lightvessel "Amrumbank", which contains on the bridge´s chartroom
our Amateur Radio Clubstation DF0MF and the right one is the old woodden herring lugger "AE 7" ,
built in 1908 on a shipyard in Scheveningen/NL.

All three shipsare still able to go to sea on their own engines and they are doing it from time to time.

The following picture shows my home made QRP shortwave transceiver. This allmode analoge transceiver  was designed by OM Peter Solf (DK1HE) and sold as a kit by "QRP Project" in Berlin.

During vacation I normally use a very small equipment set. The HB-1B has an internal battery which permits to transmit over hours with about 3-4 watts into an endfeeded 12 m random wire antenna, adapted via a  L-match tuner.

This is not a DX configuration, but it allows very funny CW contacts over the horizon of my favorite vacation island BORKUM in JO33io.

Unfortunately  I cannot use the commercial tower shown below, but I´m happy with the random wires in my vacation flat.  Dont´t forget, HAM Radio success is not only a question of equipment and power but also a question of operation capability and a certain amount of patience.

                                                   

More information about the Island of Borkum you will find under www.Borkum.de
