My Thanks go to the hams of my old German radio club OV Schwarzwald in Villingen 

who helped to get my first license as DJ6RD in 1960

One fine Day.

Arnold, W9IGH (SK) came to our city of Villingen to visit the SABA Radio/TV factory and of course

while in town, he wanted to meet a local ham radio operator .

I was lucky enough to be it. A little later he sponsored me to come the US to work for him but I was off the air for years until after my tour of duty with the US Army in Viet Nam. About that time Barry Goldwater K7UGA pushed for reciprocal licenses to be issued to foreign nationals . My first chance to operate in the US was in Columbus GA, where A Local ham with a radio store let me use his equipment. For a short time I operated as DJ6RD/W4 and after my discharge I came to Indiana where I became DJ6RD/W9. I had much fun working through OSCAR 6 and OSCAR 7. It was a mad race to see who could work WAS first but the first 5 of us made it all within a few days. Several years Iater I got my permanent US call N9RD.

I enjoy working DX on all bands and love jumping into any pile up. My preferred mode of operation is CW but also a little SSB to keep in touch with old friends who can not operate CW.

 

Getting to the top of the SSB Honor roll was my first goal . Lately I enjoy a little RTTY and PSK to keep up with the digital world while I am waiting patiently to work a legitimate P5 for my last CW country .

Too bad that my P5/4L4FN CW  card was not accepted for DXCC  .

 

My station consists of a FT1000mp and a Heathkit SB240 Amplifier (a prototype that never made the market)

The antenna is a 15 element 5 Band yagi @ 73 feet (Force12, 5BA) for lower bands I use dipoles.

 

On the road I use my FT857D with an ATAS 120A antenna and a Bencher paddle to work CW .

I am retired and enjoy traveling with my wife Kathy WB9KTV to places that we have not been before.

I hope to meet you in the bands.

Best 73's Jürgen ( BTW the ü is German and . . _ _ on CW )

 

Thanks for working  me from St Lucia on April 13, 2014 .

QSL via Home call.

All direct QSL's have been answered.

 

 

 

I am  on LOTW and upload as often as I can If you need a paper QSL please send an SASE !

I also receive QSL's via the BURO but that takes a long time

After retirement my wife got me interested in fixing her quilting machine and after a while I was running the darn thing. Now she just makes the quilt tops and I do the machine quilting. Some of our quilts have been in quilt shows from coast to coast and featured in magazines.
