Hello everybody out there in cyber space,
I am a radio amateur since 1980 when i was a student in law. I upgraded my license to the highest license class available in Germany in 1981 and received the callsign DL2KBD.
I am married to my wife Gabriele since 1997 and in 2002 our son Oliver was born. We all live at the western border of Cologne in our own house. Oh - and I am a lawyer since 1987 ...
Station equipment in 2014 is an Elecraft K2/100 (primary for short wave CW), an FT-847 (for all band purposes), a TM-742 E (for 2/70/23cm FM) and an FT-817 ND (which I mainly use on vacancies when I like to qrp). Antennas at home: 2 el FB23 yagi for 20/15/10, a FD4 mainly for 80/40/17/12 and a dipole for 30m. On VHF/UHF there are some middle size yagis sitting together with the 2 el short wave yagi on a Westtower Ultimast 10m above ground. On short wave mainly I work in CW, besides that sometimes in PSK31 and RTTY, nearly never in SSB (causes me headaches).
Cologne is a city in the western part of Germany with about 1 million inhabitants and the 4th largest city in Germany. The city is famous for it's cathedral in gothic style, the so called "4711 Eau de Cologne", its beer (the "Koelsch", which even Bill Clinton loves) and the famous football club 1. FC Koeln - now back again in the Bundesliga!
Tnx for contacting me and vy73 from Cologne - Bernd
