Started ham radio in 1959 at the age of 15 and had following calls: DM3KNA, DM3YNA in Stralsund at the Baltic coast , where I had my apprenticeship. In 1962 I went to Wittenberg, known by the reformator Martin Luther, where I was active as DM4XXH, DM2AYH, Y21YH. With the German reunification my call sign changed to DL3HXX. My DOK is: W29. I'm interested in cw, contests and digi modes being a member of the EPC (#1792). Other clubs are: HSC, RTC, RNARS, WAB. I retired on 31.12.2005 and enjoy the radio, gardening and photography. Lately I started chasing SOTA-activities and GMA as well. Consider HAM-radio one of the most interesting hobbies with its many fields to be active.
My current setup: digimodes with my elderly FT990, interface a RigExpert Plus. Laptop running windows 7 and MixW.
All other modes are done with the Elecraft K3 up to 100 watts. Have fun trying QRPPP at 100 mwatts and its amazing how well the outcome is.
The antenna is a simple 43 meters long wire about 10 meters off ground fed by coax / unun.
