German DOK: W02
Hello dear YL or OM!
I'm a Radio Amateur since March of 1994 - mostly qrv in CW.
I prefer QRQ-CW also in little DX-Chats if the station on the other side also like this.
But sometimes I also have to clean the microphone from the dust and using it for a qso in SSB. Not very often I also be qrv in digital modes like PSK, RTTY, MFSK or Olivia.
Never use here more than 100 Watts out with mostly self constructed antennas. Since the End of March 2012 I use my self builded 64 meters long dipol up 11 meters which is off center feded by ladder line and coupled with an Automatic Antenna Tuner Model MFJ-993B to my ICOM IC-746 TRX. This dipol works well on all bands from 80 to 10 meters. For the Bands from 17 to 10 meters I also use a groundplane from Solarcon Model I-MAX 2000 which brings realy good DX-signals.
I'm a member of the German Amateur Radio Club (DARC), the German Radio Telegraphy Club (RTC-Nr. 154) and since December 2007 also a member of the Radio Telegraphy High Speed Club (HSC-Nr. 1873).
I prefer to send all QSL's via buro and hope to get your card also on this way. Monthly I send all QSO-Dates to LOTW and EQSL.cc. Who's not sure about beeing in my Log can proof that under the following link by HAM Office Online-Log.
So hope to meet you on the bands, allways best DX and CWFE (CW for ever!).
