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.

On HF I am using the FT 857D and prefer the digital modes, especially JT65 and JT9. Sometimes my old FT301 is activated, too, normally for SSB-DX-QSOs. I like that old radio very much because of its nice audio. On VHF and UHF I am still QRV with my old FT221R (Mutek frontend) and the FT 790R, but not so active there.

For the digital modes I use an Acer Aspire One netbook and an Android tablet for Echolink. My "antenna-farm" is not very big, I use dipoles and verticals for HF and a collinear antenna for VHF and UHF.
