I was born in 1958 in Eastern Germany and got my first Ham Radio license at the age of 16 in March 1975. My first callsign was DM3PFF. Until 1990, the year of the reunification of Eastern- and Western Germany, I never had the chance to experience the other side of the pile ups. Nevertheless, it took up to 2003 before I participated in my first DXpedition to Kerkennah Island, Tunisia TS7N. In the following years I attended more or less large DXpeditions every year. As you can see in my callsign - CW is my favored mode and I especially like beautiful CW pile ups.
I am member of the Bavarian Contest Club and operate at most major DX contests in the M/M category at the contest station DR1A in Goch, near the Dutch border. Of course I'm interested in DXing itself. My last "All Time New One" was K9W on Wake Island. Currently my last missing entities are P5 North Korea and KH5 Palmyra & Jarvis Isl.
By the way - most people call me by my nickname "Paul" rather than using the real name.
