From 27.09.-11.10.15 I was back to Sao Miguel Island (IOTA EU-003). I used equipment from my local friends CU2CE (José) and CU2DX (Francisco) as I did during previous stays. José lend me a Kenwood TS-570 and I used the 40m-yagi (3-el. ) at Francisco´s QTH. Using the internal antenna tuner I operated on 7, 18, 21, 24.9 and 28 MHz and made some more than 700 QSO. Again we were accomodated in the "Casa Villa" at the QTH of CU2DX. All QSO are already confirmed in LotW - please do not send paper QSL.
From 10.Sep.-28.Sep.2014 I was on Sao Miguel Island again and I had a wonderful vacation. I used the stations of CU2DX, CU2CE and the local clubstation CU2ARA. All these powerful stations allowed big pile-ups and it was fun to handle it. Many thanks especially to Francisco (CU2DX) and his wife Ana. They rented us their "Casa rural" which is a fantastic QTH for relaxing.
QSL via my homecall. All QSO are already uploaded to LotW.
From 15.-29.09.2013 I was on Sao Miguel Island, Azores. This was a holiday trip and I made 601 QSO as CT8/DL4KG. The island Sao Miguel belongs to IOTA EU-003. Many thanks to José (CU2CE) and his wife Paula for the absolutely superb support and hospitality. It has been a great experience to work from a rare spot with the super equipment from CU2CE and the local contest station CR2X.
Being active on all bands from 40 m - 23 cm I like DXing on all bands incl. VHF and UHF. The 70 cm array (4x29el.) has been dismantled after app. 200 EME contacts. Today I am trying EME with a single 2.1 WL yagi on 2 m. Up to now I managed to work 38 initials with 100 W out from a Kenwood TS-2000X. With this small setup I would like to achieve the WAC on 2 m. I still need a contact with South America.
My favourite mode is CW. I am member of the high speed clubs HSC (25 wpm), VHSC (40 wpm), SHSC (50 wpm) and EHSC (60 wpm).
