Hello, I was born in the year 1951 in BERLIN (GERMANY). As a young boy my interest was the shortwave and I am listening to some broadcasting stations with a homebrew RX and indoor-antennas. I beginning my time as an SWL and collect my QSL-Cards from much BC-stations.
But after some years my interest change to listen the Radio-Hams and now the times comming up whose I want to transmit from myself.
Since 1981 I have my licence and have worked: 5Band WAZ --- 5Band WAS --- 5Band DXCC --- No 1 ARRL DXCC Honor Roll.
My Rig is an ICOM IC-740 (by the way a good receiver because he's very quiet especially at 40 and 80m).
Linear-Amplifiers are a Alpha 87A and a Kenwood TL-922.
Antennas are a 3 el. Yagi for 10, 15 and 20m,
a 2 el. Yagi for 12, 17 and 30m,
a 2 el. Yagi for 40m.
For 80m I using a simple dipole (10m over the top of the building 21m high).
Unfortunately for 160m I have no place for a dipol respectively a vertical with radials.
I need only "P5" in cw mode, all others countries I have confirmed in the SSB and CW mode.
Always good DX and Greetings from Berlin,
