Since some radio amateurs are of the opinion that QSL cards are only for collecting, and not for sending, only incoming cards will be answered by me 100%.
My name is Peter Rapien. I was born in 1966 in Wanne-Eickel (it is in the middle of the Ruhrgebiet) and I’ve been living in Gelsenkirchen since I was 4 years old. At the age of 12 years (1978) I made my first contact with a hand-held CB radio – and I really enjoyed it! My first device was a KOM-40. Over the next few years I owned many more CB radio devices – until I got to know my present wife at the age of 24 (1990). At this time I stopped my radio hobby activities because many other things were much more important, though I listened to amateur radio sometimes.
At the age of 39 (2005) two radio amateurs called Helmut DL2HS Danke and Tobias DL6TN Danke persuaded me to take up amateur radio again - a hobby without an ending, but exciting !
In January 2006 passed my first test and got the call sign DO7TB. In the same year (December 2006) I went up to class A and the latest call sign DL7SPR was given to me. It evolved after a long period of considerable thought:
(DL) stands for Germany,
( 7 ) is my housenumber,
( S ) stands for the name of my wife (she is called Sandra),
( P ) for my own first name:Peter
( R ) for my last name:Rapien Nowadays I enjoy making radio contact on all bands – every day!
