K5XK was QRV from Europe for 7 weeks in May, June, and July, 2011, visiting family and friends. On 3 June, old friends Leo / DJ7PR, Klaus / DK5SF, and I activated HB0 / (our home calls) from Leo's camper van high up in the Lichtenstein Alps. We then operated OE /(home calls) from nearby OE9XRV monastery club station in Bregenz, Austria. Altogether, I had 600+ fantastic QSOs signing HB0 / OE / and DL / K5XK. Most of the QSOs were casual ragchews from our son's QTH near Kaiserslautern, in SW DL. Also with the help of Leo, Klaus, and Fabian / DJ1YFK, I also operated the contest station of Tof/DJ6ZM (DL1A), on the outskirts of Munich.

It was my first time in 40 years to operate from EU, since my Signal Corps days as DA2ER (and DL5AG club station in Goeppingen & Ansbach). While in Germany, I enjoyed eyeball and many on-air QSOs with several old and new friends. With visits to the Czech Republic, the former DDR, and the Baltic seaport cities of Kiel, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Tallin and St. Petersburg, our amazing summer of 2011 was truly memorable.

At present, I'm using almost all TenTec gear, an ORION I and OMNI 6+, along with a small Hercules II solid state amp and a homebrew 2 el 5 band HF Quad constructed after our EU trip. Here are some photos of the antenna party and some good friends .

Thanks for the enjoyable QSOs, especially while we were visiting in Europe.

K5XK was licensed in 1962 (age 14) with callsigns WN5BQI / WA5BQI in Little Rock and Jonesboro, AR. Other previous calls used were DA2ER and DL5AG while in the U.S.Army Signal Corps in Germany (Goeppingen & Ansbach) during the early 1970s. Those were especially enjoyable years, "the good old days."

I have been QRV 50+ years. My XYL Debbie (N5WEX) and I love the foothills of the Ozark Mountains in Northwest Arkansas.

I am 'old school' and operate 99.9% Morse. Radio interests are ragchewing, chasing DX, Field Day & occasional contesting. Former DXCC Honor Roll member. Current member ARRL, FOC, A-1 Operators Club, Ozark Wireless Society, ARKAN and our local Bella Vista ham club.

73/DX, and CU on the bands!
