Thanks for stopping by - my name is Andreas (friends call me "Andy"). I am licensed since 1980 and work mostly on 80 and 40 but also doing DX on 20m and 17m in SSB. Simply stop by around 3653 KHz or 7194 KHz for chatting.
My favorite DX-spots are below 14.200 KHz (Extra class segment) or 18.150 KHz (+/- QRM). All frequencies mentioned are preferred spots and depend certainly on QRM.
Since early 2012 I also hold an US extra class "W6EAT". Whenever I'm back in the US I am also pretty active on 20m but also via D-Star (US-Trust, Reflectors 6C, 9C, 10C, 12A, 14C, 30C and during Hamvention on 38C)
Certainly HF remains my #1 activity and play ground even when I´m also doing D-Star (mobile and portable).
We build our own D-Star Network in our county "Schleswig-Holstein" over the last 2 years - today our network has 17 repeaters (and several more of others)......I am owning 8 repeaters on 2m and 70cm today, hosted at 4 different locations: At my qth "DB0EAT", in Laboe near our capitol Kiel "DB0DMB", near Heide "DM0HEI" and in Timmendorfer Strand "DB0MAR-B". In parallel I am SysOp of 16 repeaters in our county.
Over the last 2 years I built several more repeaters for other locations and friends. If you are interested in some more detailed information please visit either DB0EAT or W6EAT here on QRZ.com. In addition you find more information about some HF projects on my personal home page www.duessler.de.

One of my other hobbies: Riding my BMW K1200RS - here with Dirk, DL4BAM (right). Picture taken during our last tour 2013 in Dorumersiel:
And here is our final trip in 2014 on October 4th: Visiting Jens, DK8MIL and Reinhard, DL6BC during their military vanity car weekend in Henstedt near Bremen.
