First contact with radios was in the Fifties, building an own radio. Several other projects followed and in 1969 I got the amateur licence as DC9QR. Activities were on 2m first in AM, using crystals for the transmitter, later I got a VFO and bought my first SSB-transceiver. A bit later activities on 70cm started, most of them portable.

Then a CW training began in our local radio club (F47) and we all were successfull and got the A-licence. Bulding big antennas was one of the activities in our local radio club and we were active in a lot of contests. After a long time of being not QRV I started again when I retired.

Sometimes Im QRV for DX-QSOs using my old Yaesu FT 301 barefoot and a vertikal antenna or OCF-dipoles. I like that old radio very much because of its nice audio quality. Im still on VHF and UHF but not so active there using a FT 857D and a collinear antenna or my old FT221R with a Mutek-frontend for SSB or the FT790R for 70cm.

For a year now I try to do some DX-QSOs in PSK31 and JT65 and I am still surprised about the QSOs with 25-50 watts and my simple antennas. Sometimes Im still fighting against my program and/or the computer but most of the QSOs are successfull. For the digital modes I use the FT857D, HRD + DM780 and WSJT-X or ROS, the Eazy EZ-1 interface and an ACER Aspire One.
