Ham Member Lookups: 6761




I got interested in radio in my teens and I've been an SWL since I was about 16 years old. After I learned CW while serving as a radio operator in the German navy, I got seriously interested in ham radio. Some 20 years later, in September 2007, I finally found the time to take the exam and get my license.

I operate almost exclusively in CW with a bit of digimodes thrown in now and then.

I like building my own equipment, so my rig collection is bound to grow in timewink

Until September 2013 my main rig used to be a K2 (QRP version) which I built at the beginning of 2011. I also own a homemade 80m TX ("ugly weekender", 2W out) and RX (R2Pro, slightly modified), a Blue Cool Radio (nice rig for /p operations) and a Softrock RXTX 6.2 (20/30m version).

After I finally got around to getting the necessary paperwork done (in DL you need to make it plausible to the regulatory authorities that you don't exceed limits for electromagnetic fields before operating with more than 10W EIRP) I treated myself to TS590s in order to be able to do ragchew QSOs even in marginal conditions when a weak QRP signal will put to much strain on the guy at the other end. I am still using the K2 for portable work -- I never go on holidays without it.

As I do not have much room for an antenna, I am using an inverted L (10m vertical, 12m horizontal) with an automatic tuner (SGC239) in the feed point.

When I am not building something, I enjoy rag-chewing using hand-made and/or QRQ CW. Depending on the speed, I use a straight key, a cootie, or a bug.

I am a rather avid collector of QSL cards. If you send me yours, you can be sure to get mine (SWLs most welcome). Since DL is not exactly a rare DXCC entity and I am not getting many direct QSL cards, I do not require (but still appreciate) return postage.
