Thanks for watching QRZ.com and greetings from the centre of Germany!
Added Oct. 18th, 2014: A new DX Pedition is upcoming. From Nov 26th until Dec. 17th I will be QRV as 6Y6N from Jamaica. With the help of Josh, 6Y5WJ and the superb service from the Spectrum Management Authority the license arrived this week.
I will take part in the CQWW CW contest and before and afterwards in holiday style at various places. Looking forward to hear from you.
Please note, I do not use any WEB based QSL Services for the DX-peditions FH/FR/FG/3B8.
The short dx pedition (holiday style) to Mayotte and La Reunion is over. Please note that some users reported FH/DK2PY on November 8th in the cluster. This was wrong! The correct call sign was FH/DK9PY.
Please check the logbook if you are in.
FH/DK9PY from Nov. 05 until Nov. 11 2013
Online Logbook www.clublog.org/logsearch/FH/DK9PY
FR/DK9PY from Nov. 11 until Nov. 22 2013
Online Logbook www.clublog.org/logsearch/FR/DK9PY
Do not send a card if you are not in the log. If you are not in the log, no QSO likewise no QSL! Cards received without IRC or porto cost will be answered via bureau.
QSL cards received direct were sent via direct up until August 20th, 2014. Cards via bureau up until August 2014 have been responded via bureau too. So you should have them soon.
10 MHz was hard to work at the FR location due to local QRN (neon lights). 40m, 80 m and 160 was just impossible. Please excuse if I was unable to hear u.
Please note QSLs can be sent via bureau or direct. Cards will only be sent after I have received one. And again, Web based QSL services will NOT be used!!!
The FH/DK9PY QSL card picture was taken by myself and shows the nice Plage de N'Gouja at the Jardin Maore Hotel at the south east coast of Mayotte. A very nice place to relax with excellent personnel who were very interested while installing my antenna system between the trees. The propagation towards EU and US is not really good, however it worked pretty well. The QSL card above shows the famous and impressive Baobab trees, that do not have leaves during the hot season, but started flowing. For additional details go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baobab_tree.
The FR/DK9PY QSL card picture was taken by myself and allows a breathtaking view into the Cirque de Mafate. Further details of La Reunion can be found on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cirque_de_Mafate.
All direct mailed and via bureau QSL cards for FG and 3B8 have been responded. QSL cards received via bureau will be answered via bureau but only if I receive a card. So if you need one, send one. I will not use any WEB based QSL services. Only direct or via bureau.
I am a radio engineer, planning commercial digital radio systems, e.g. DMR, TETRA and ASTRO. My passion is shortwave dx communication almost 100% in CW. I like high speed morse code and hope to meet you on the band for a chat. There are many PC programs available to improve the CW skills and increasing speed capabilities, see i.e. http://www.rufzxp.net or http://www.ji0vwl.com/cw_freak_net_e.html
Contesting is another funny hobby within the hobby and hope to see you there.
