New from June 2014: PERSEUS SDR, temporary online. Check website http://microtelecom.it/map/PerseusServers.html

 I am temporary operating in 2015 with the special callsign HB90IARU in CW, SSB and digital modes.

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

I prefere operating in CW and SSB to complete checklists for DXCC, WAS, WPX, PACC (Netherlands) and other awards. Active also in digital modes like RTTY, BPSK (31/63/128), Olivia, MFSK and SSTV. You can work me often 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 # 100'000 in my log book.

I do not process eQSL's. I see eQSL as basically useless for any mainstream awards. They 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 SAE + 2 US$
  • Outside Europe SAE + 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.
