Hello! Started my ham life as a SWL at an age of 15 and became licensed at 18 in 1970. I held my first call, DC1EB, for abt. 2 years and enjoyed working on 144 mc, with crystal controlled AM - TX and tuning across the band after a cq - call but this was usual practise these days! In 1972 I upgraded to short wave and hold DK6JL since than. Main activity was on short wave first but several years later I got back to VHF and discovered 6 m by crossband during cycle 21, I enjoyed it very much and was very active with transmitting later on, a bit illegal but funny! Many W's, VE's gave me wonderful pile ups! In May 1990 I became one of the first on a legal base here in Germany and it is still amazing on six, with all these modes of propogation like aurora, TEP, F2, tropo and soradic E. I also had some experience on VLF but now I am back again on the higher frequencies 432 - 10368 mc. If you might hear me calling cq, please give me a call, whatever the band I am on. I am a professional RF technican and working for fire brigades and rescue workers repairing their pagers and wireless equipment, though home brewing is one of my favourite activities. Have been a radio technician at the Lockheed F-104G in the early 70s and still interested in old millitary aircrafts!
If you want or need my QSL - card, please send a card via DARC, I will 100% confirm any QSO!! Please no E - QSL at all!!
