I'm 24 years old (was born in August 1988) and started radio in 2001. My shack consists of a small FT-897D, a FT-1000MP and an
TS-930S with about 100W. I moved to Ilmenau in August 2009 and don't have the possibility to set up any big antenna.
I use an homebrew aluminium-whip (5mtr) with capacitance hat and loading coil on the balcony (abt 18m high) with good results.
For 160 I usually go to our club station (DF0HQ) which is just a few houndred of meters away from my flat. There we have a full size vertical and a hand full of beverages.
I'm member in Ilmenauer Contest Club (DF0HQ, DA0HQ) and enjoying working from this amazin club station which is only
a couple of hundreds of meters away from my home. My girl friend (DM8YL) and me also enjoy participating in some contests :-)
I prefer CW-QSOs, but sometimes I'm too lazy for clapping the key - then I QSY to SSB -hi.
I like QRQ, 160m and 6m - more information on my home page www.dl4uny.de
QSL via bureau is ok
