I was born in 1972 in Kehl near Strasbourg. I am licensed since 06.1997 and first i got
the small license called DC9TC. Three months later i got the "big" license DL1GME.
I spend a lot of time on shortwave, specially on 40/20/15 and 10 meters.
Sometimes i get lost on 12,17, 30 or 6 meters hi hi.


This is my shack with all of my equipment, where i spend a lot of my free time.

QSL-Info: Only LOTW (preferable) or EQSL.cc. I no longer accept QSL Cards via the bureau.

 




My shortwave microphone is a very old one. It was made in the 1960s but the electronic inside is an
absolutely other and was created by myself. It sounds very nice and lovely and works fine on my
Kenwood TS-870s.





My Kenwood TS-870 is my shortwave-machine. It is not the youngest radio, but i love it.
Now, the 870 is complete. Today i put the SO-2 Unit inside and it works fine.
In combination with my modified Turner+2 the Modulation is just fantastic...






The Kenwood TS2000 is my backup/portable transceiver also for 6m @ home.
This one is modified by me and consumes much less current.
The LCD-Background-lights now are white low-current-LEDs.

On the ACC2 connector i put a 12 kHz IF-Output for several CW-Skimmers or DRM.




For 2m and 70cm i use the Kenwood TM255e and TM455e.
I modified both Transceiver LCD-Background-lights to white low-current-LEDs.
On top is the Digital Vector RF Wattmeter LP-100A with a 10kW coupler.
To the left side you just discover my VHF/UHF-Microphone. It´s a Turner +3B now.





Even the Kenwood TL-922 Meter-lamps are modified to white low-current-LEDs.
The fan inside was very loud, so i decide to replaced it with an Arctic-Cooling 12V fan.
The fan-modification is very complicated because the old fan works with 100V.
I put an cute powersupply inside for it and it works very well.
Today (20.12.2014) i modifiy the second stage on this amplifier.
The loud RX-Relay and BIAS-Relay are replaced by two Vacuum-Relay for TRX switch
and an Electronic BIAS Switch. Now it is very quiet and extreme fast (5 ms for QSK).
A lot of people ask me, why so much power?
Well, the answer is very simple: Life is too short for QRP :-D
This amplifier is amazing :-)







The PCB was created by myself.
If you are interessted in the schematic, feel free and ask me...




A friend of mine couldn´t find a powerful 1:1 Balun for his 80/40m Dipol.
i decide to build him a new one - only for 80/40m.
The Powerrating is about 4kW SSB (PEP) / 2kW CW.
Just take a look at the wight also hi hi...

You need also a new one?
Feel free and ask me for prices :-)​​




My Log is Logger32 in Version 3.50.200 with the FiFi-SDR for CW-Skimmer and panorama-view.





FiFi-SDR is a SDR-Receiver created by Funkamateur.
It covers 200 kHz to 30 MHz and includes 5 bandfilters and is very, very small.





For VLF i use a selfmade VLF-Converter. It covers about 9 kHz to 500 kHz.
This band will be transformed into the 5 MHz-Band. It is a very quiet Band.




My Delta-Loop for 40-20-15-10 Meters without Tuner and with Tuner it works fine on 30,17,12 and 6 Meters.




Here some new stuff...
In the wintertime i decide to build a L-Match with the option to convert it later to
a S-Match. Power-Rating about 2kW :-)







This one is my new toy. It´s a Mini-VNA Pro-BT and covers a range from 100kHz to 200MHz.
You can analyze Antennas, Filters, Baluns etc. with it.





This antenna-switch is created by myself and handle up to 4 antennas and works up to 60 MHz.
It switch the Short-Dipole for 3,8 MHz and the 50 MHz DeltaLoop for my Kenwood TS2000.
With just 4 wires it is possible to switch 4 antennas inluding controlling of 4 MagLoops.




Here is my selfmade 1:4 Teflon-Hybrid-Balun for my 40m Delta-Loop.
It handle up to 1 kW (PEP) and the SWR is very flat near 1:1,1.
I build a lot of Baluns.
You are interessted on these Baluns? Feel free and write me a mail... :-)





Here a closer picture of my favourite shortwave microphone.
I love my modified Turner+2 :-)





I hope you enjoyed my QRZ.com site.
Feel free to ask or e-mail me what ever you want :-)
