This month: http://www.solarimpulse.com/ An idea born in Switzerland

I like operating in CW and SSB to complete my checklists for DXCC, WAS, WPX, PACC (Netherlands) and other awards. Active also in digital modes like RTTY, BPSK, Olivia, MFSK and SSTV. You can work me as a participant in different contests.

2013 I reached my best result ever in the CQ WW DX CW contest: 1300 QSO, score about 1'200'000 points. During this contest I logged QSO no. 100'000 in my CW/SSB log book.

I do not process eQSL's. I see eQSL as basically useless for any mainstream awards.

Electronic QSLs are not valid for a number of awards. Because of that I need also real paper cards for most of my contacts. QSL via buro is standard procedure. You are welcome to send your QSL-card direct including SAE and enough return postage to my personal adress. If you do not follow the procedure below, I send back your QSL via buro. Please follow this procedure: 

  • Europe 2 US$
  • Outside Europe 2 US$
  • Special roules for Switzerland: SAE with Swiss stamps for A or B service
  • Special roules for Germany: SAE with 0,62 Euro German stamps

    SWL Reports are also welcome. Today's SWLs are tomorrow's Hams.

Antennas: Fritzel beam 3 elements for 10/15/20 m,additional dipol element for 12m/17m/30m. 2x37m wire dipol with tuner for 9 bands. HB9CV antenna for 6m, 12m above ground level. Diamond dualband vertical antenna X-300 for 2m/70cm.

Antenna maintenance October 2011. Top > down: HB9CV for 6m, dipol for WAC-bands, 3-element FRITZEL beam 10/15/20m. In front of the house (not visible) 2x37m long wire dipol antenna, continuouse optimized and often changed in lengh and configuration. This antenna works on 9 short wave bands, driven over a indoor HAMWARE tuner. In the left corner of this picture the Diamond X-300 vertical for 2m and 70cm.

One of the most impressive moments are personal contacts. My dear friend Richard ZS1RIC and his radio station. Picture taken in the year 2010 in Capetown South Africa during a personal contact.
