Licenced since 1971, I’ve been active in CW with very limited antenna possibilities. In 1978 we moved within Erlangen and fortunately I was able to install a mini-beam for 6 / 10 / 15 / 20 meters as well as an end-fed longwire antenna for 17 / 30 / 40 / 80 and 160 Meters.
In 2001 I started operating on Low Frequency (137 kHz) in QRSS-3 Mode, also using the end-fed longwire antenna, which isn’t really a good solution for longwave (hi).
In 2004 I “discovered” QRP portable and outdoor operation. Since my retirement in 2006 I enjoy short bicycle trips in combination with QRP CW operation. My portable equipment is a FT-817, a homebrew antenna tuner and a telescope whip antenna about 3 meters long (fixed at the bicycle during break for operation).
In autumn and winter I prefer to operate – now from my home shack (hi) – in Digital Modes like SSTV, BPSK 31 and JT65A as well as in good old CW.
For contacts in Digital Modes alternative to QSL-cards electronic confirmations (eQSL) are also welcome.
Medium Wave Experimental Beacon DI2AF: Since Nov. 2010 sometimes I am operating an Experimental Beacon with an extra permittion and the special identifier DI2AF on Mediumwave band in WSPR-Mode on 505,130 kHz (Dial: 503,63 kHz). Reports are welcome vial WSPR Spot Data Base or via EMAIL.
