Main interests

One of my main interests in amateur radio is contesting, where I'm always trying to beat my own previous record, and where I might occasionally come in the top three of a category. But only if I choose the right contest ;-) - in the big worldwide contests, I'm very lucky if I can get into a top 100. The other thing about contesting which I like is that there is no requirement or obligation to send QSL cards. Because I have NO interest in sending or receiving QSL cards.

Also important to me are the ham-radio oriented websites which I maintain - these are:

  • SOTA Mapping Project (SMP) at http://www.sotamaps.org/ - this is an online mapping application for the SOTA (Summits On The Air) award scheme. I was fortunate indeed to have been awarded the SOTA Sherpa Award 2014 by the SOTA organisation, in recognition for my contributions to the SOTA program. Here's the certificate:

which I am very grateful to have received.



Club Station DK0IW

I'm a member of my local Amateur Radio Club, the Isarwinkel club DK0IW (IW = Isar Winkel) in the German DOK C07. The Club is fortunate enough to have a Club Station out in the country - so QRM is normally at a minimum - a few kilometers east of Bad Tölz, and on top of a small hill surrounded by rich meadows, moorland and mixed woods. The Alps are just a couple of kilometers away to the south.

The station is doubly fortunate to own a 34-meter vertical antenna - perfect for 160 meters - and the Club often achieves good results in the CQ World Wide 160-Meter Contest. The antenna can also be made to tune onto other bands (apart from 80-meters), and I myself have made contact with Ducie Island on 20m and 40m using it.

We also have a Titanex 11-element wire log periodic on a small mast, not really very high, but it works OK.
