The QSL cards for my calls during the South Pacific DXpedition 2009 (5W0WL, A31WL and E51BWL) must be sent to Claudia PA3LEO.
The cards for TK5WL can be sent via my home call.

I obtained my VHF-only callsign in 1971 and upgraded to the A-license in 1972. I was active on all HF amateur bands and did a lot of contesting. Since the home location was not very suited for amateur radio. The activity was more and more moving to alternative or portable locations and was mostly a joined effort by the members of the local VERON department. Already in those days the antennas were the most interesting part of the hobby.
After moving to Oss I could use a 60 ft Versatower with antennas for 50 MHz up to 1296 MHz. The time for the hobby was limited due to my new job.This changed in 1999 when the antennas were replaced by a FB33 multiband yagi. An additional mast was erected in the back of my garden and a multiband loop (in fact a single element quad for 40 m) was used for the lower bands.
Alternatively a Marconi antenna (vertical with tophat) was used to work on 137 kHz. I managed to work 25 countries on that band using standard CW but also very slow CW with optical reception of QRSS signals using a computer with suited software for reception (and transmitting).
During my holidays I like to work from my holiday location.Until now I worked as /OZ,/F, /EA, /OK and /DL.
In the autumn of 2009 I joined the South Pacific DXpedition. During that expedition I worked as /W6, 5W0WL, A31WL, /ZL and E51BWL. During the CQWW contest as operator of A31A: 2M points (country record) #1 in Tonga, #3 in Oceania
The last two years I did also some 2 meter MS and started to build an EME station.The first EME qso's are in the log and more to come

In May 2012 as part of the RRDXA WPX team active from Corsica as TK4A during the contest.
I made some 500 qso's using my private call TK5WL. QSL via homecall. The log has already been uploaded to LoTW.
The cards will be ready soon and will be sent via the bureau in August. (Apart from the direct ones of course)
