QSL image for DL8OH

DOK I49

DL8OH operates from a rural place close to the North-Sea coastline of Germany's North. (Also known as "Radio Tiniburg").

Situated in an absolutely flat area in the midth of meadows.

An area, which is hit by heavy winds from time to time. A year ago, the 30/40m Beam came down in a severe storm and reduced my DX-performance to my good old Butternut Vertical.

Now I am back again with a new 3el fs 40m Yagi and a 2el fs 30m Yagi interlaced on the same boom. (In the picture`s center)

The 3el 40m-Yagi is a YU7EF-design, the 2el 30m-Yagi is an additional DJ2YA-design and the complete antenna was manufactured by LX2A.

 

The other antenna-layout is more or less the same as earlier.

Two identical motorized crank-up towers (10m cranked down and 27m cranked up) built by "Antennebouw Wind" in the Netherlands. 3 el fullsize 40m yagi and a 2 el fullsize 30m Yagi interlaced on a 12m boom (foreground tower) as well as an Optibeam OB 16-5 (5 bands 10-20m, 4el each) on the tower behind the house. And there is a 9 over 9 el Yagi for 2m by M2. Two M2 2800PX Orion Rotators.


One smaller 10m tower with a KT34XA Tribander (10-20m). No 6m Antenna at the moment.

A fullsize 4 square for 80m (two poles can be found adjacent to the 13m tower on the right)

Then a good old trusty Butternut for 40+80m, which can be used on 30m as well and a low-hanging (9 m high) dipole for 80m DL-traffic. ( not in the picture).

An "inverted L"-Antenna with only a couple of groundwires for 160m.

A 2-wire-beverage, 170m East<> West (not in the picture).

A pennant RX-Antenna, which sometime produces better results than the beverage....

A KLM-M2 9 over 9el Yagi-Antenna for 2m.

A vertical antenna for 2m/70cm (local FM- and repeater-traffic only)

There is a nice bird's eye view of my antennas on youtube, shot by DL2OBO - now DM9EE - .

Have a look for that at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tL9UcJ8CQUM

 

 

TT Orion+TT Titan 425 at the left, Flexradio 5000A behind the two center-screens. HF-Tuner and 2m-PA at the left

 

Running a Flexradio SDR 5000A and an Acom 2000A. A TenTec Orion and Titan 425E are the second radio. AKG 220 microphone with Behringer Shark DSP110. Headset is a Heil Proset+.

Using DX4WIN for general logging and WinTest for contesting.

Member of the Bavarian Contest Club and GDXF, fond of SSB, RTTY, contesting, DXing and low-band operation. QRV since 1965 with a couple of longer pauses since then.

Operator of several contest- and DX-pedition-efforts like C30OH, C30AAN, C56/DL8OH, HB0/DL8OH, HB0CZS, LX7A, SV5/DL8OH, SV/DL8OH, EA8/DL8OH, ZL0ACO, CN8WW (www.dl6fbl.de/cn8ww/ ), VK9DNX, VK9DWX ( http://vk9dwx.dl1mgb.com/) and ZL8X ( www.kermadec.de/).

DL8OH also holds the special contest callsign DP6A (Tiniburg Contest Club), which is mostly activated in major contest efforts like participating in the multi/single category

cu on the bands!

73 de Dieter, DL8OH
