With the age of 14 (1970) I started with shortwave listening.
My first favorites were international broadcasting stations, PTT utility
stations and later amateur radio stations.
Since 1980 I am a licensed radio amateur (former Class C, now Class A)
equipped for working on VHF/UHF up to 440 MHz and since August 2003 also
for shortwave and 50 MHz.
My favorite operating modes: SSB, HELL, PSK, RTTY.

I will answer every received QSL-Card/SWL-Report, via bureau or direct.
Every first time QSO will be confirmed by QSL via bureau or as requested.
Please no e-QSL card, I still prefer the ´old paper QSL-Card style´.
