GERMAN AMATEUR RADIO STATION
Amateur Radio from this 1000 years old historic Bavarian castle upon Danube river
My radio shack
is located in the bay window (see picture right), south direction to the river side. The bay-window has three windows, east-south-west. From my shack I enjoy a marvelous sight over the river Danube.Antenna wires go down from the southern window toward river Danube as a symmetrical inverted-Vof random length. Ground conditions are excellent. I usually use lower than 10 watts of RF power output from several transceivers, although I'm allowed to use full legal limit power.
About My HAM Radio Career
I started Amateur Radio in 1978 at the age of 18 when I received my C-class Call DD9CC which then in Germany was a VHF/UHF license only. Short after, in 1980, I was luckily able to greatly improve my CW skills during the cold war when I was called for the compulsory military service as a CW short wave reconnaisance specialist at the age of 20 years. Thanks to those incredibly perfect east european high-speed CW military short wave operators at that time more than 30 years ago, I improved my CW skills to a high grade. I was 21 years old when I passed the test for the short wave HAM radio license (1981).
I'm a Diplom-Ingenieur specialiced in RF-techology. My company produces emc measuring equipment, antennas and RF-filters.
I received the call DD9CC in 1978 and after I passed the CW test I received DL6MBI in May 1981.
