My actual qsl
(for the records: Beer is considered food.....)

  • 05/2013: 8BDXCC
  • 05/2014: DXCC Challenge 1700

  • 09/2014: short 80/40/30m Trapdipole ~22m/66ft,6band Hexbeam
  • a variety of Antenna Matchers (manual and so called automatic...)
  • The Buddipole/Budistick Ensemble for portable operations

US Call: see -->>AA6HM . I'm the QSL manager for our local club's contest call: DK5D . The remaining QRZ.COM entry consist mainly of small pictures of my present and past qsl's as well a a short biography. Enjoy!

You'll find me mostly in CW and also PSK31 et.al., using my decent station made of an IC-7000 down to some 25 Watts and a few more or less resonant wire Antenas (no directonal antennas at all)). I've decided to reactivate my CW skills in order to finally get the DXCC (after some 40 years of Amateur Radio :-) ). I'm an old grizzled supporter of Low Power Operation. For me, anything higher than 200 Watts at the feedpoint is considered commercial broadcast... - except EME Operations and Summer BBQ's, ... in the latter case the exception applies to high power chilies only.

My other calls were: N6RKB (3 days only before passing extra) F0CQZ, TK0CQZ years before France adopted the CEPT reciprocal license.

Looking for a QSL Manager ?

Now that German international rates are as low as €0,75 (~$1),I would volunteer my time if somebody needs a manager. Just send me an e-mail....
My current station:

  • Icom 7600, - used for different modes - about 25 W Power
  • IC-7000, KX3  - for portable operation
  • FT847mostly for VHF/UHF operations
  • a variety of Antenna Matchers (manual and so called automatic...)
  • The Buddipole/Budistick Ensemble for portable operations

 

Because I see Ham Radio as a hobby, I don't fight wars about the best QSL method

  1. I understand, for rare DX stations, sending thousands of paper qsls might be a major financial impact, thus when I want a confirm, I'll pay the costs. Basta!
  2. I really prefer the nice Paper QSL delivered via the bureau. After all, it's the reason why we pay those membership fees for our amateur radio association, isn't it ? As a member of the German Amateur Radio Association (DARC), I can send my cards via the bureau. The cards are being send on a monthly base from the local chapter to the DARC HQ for further processing.
  3. Ifelectronically submitted qsls are being accepted or supported , I prefer LotW. I upload to LotW normally saturday evening or directly after major contests :-).
  4. An increasing number of prominent Amateur Radio Associations (including my own club: DARC in Germany) accept QSLs from eqsl.cc for their (more or less) prominent Award programs. Thus, I upload my logs to eqsl.cc, too.
  5. Uploads are carried out when I move the logdata from my working log (MixW) into the log archive (Ham Office) - mostly ona weekly base.

 

Sounds like the typical German style organisation eh ?. Believe me, its not ! Its just because I don't want to loose one of the precious contacts. Maybe I decide to apply even for one of the higher class DXCCs :-)

qsl #1 Here are my actual qsl cards. Nowadays, I prefer shots I made during my various visits of U.S National Parks & Monuments. While some of the motives are just what the average tourist sees through the camera, some of them I selected (and will release one by one) show those tourists spots from a different viewpoint . Thus, the first card shows a meadow in Yellowstone National Park in June. If you look at the grass, you'll see how frosty it is up there, even in summer. The second of the series isone of my (perhaps hundreds of...) standard shots of Yosemites Tunnel View with one exception: Bridalveil Fall is in full streamand just spectacular.My tribute to my time in California, which earned me AA6HM anyway.
The third shot is one of the more prominent arches in Arches National Park. In my opinion, Delicate Arch (the one on the Utah license plate) is displayed so often, somebody should start to show the many remaining beautiful arches, too.
Last comes my actualQSL. Again, it's a shot from within Arches National park: A nice view of the La Sal Mountains in late spring (June).
