Born in 1967, I became a licensed radio amateur in 1992 (Old German Class C, VHF/UHF/SHF only, wich is now Class 1). QRV again since 2006 after a 6 years break, nowadays I enjoy phone/ssb and messing around with audio equipment, trying to deliver the best possible audio using the legal bandwidth.

FlexRadio 3000 SDR, IC-7000, IC-7100

Large Diaphragm Studio Mic T-Bone SCT-2000
30 Band Mono Equalizer
Behringer 100 Tube PreAmp
Acom 1000 Amplifier
PowerMaster 3k and some peripherials...
ZS6BKW Antenna

Since I have been infected by the SDR-Virus, all the "classic" Transceivers left my shack, one after the other. The FlexRadio offers a brandnew experience and a variety of configurations and a usability that a common transceiver hardly can come up with. Along with fantastic audio and reception quality there is not much left to ask for.
However, I intend to keep it as simple as possible - just some essential components without bling-bling like compressors, noise gate and other 19" equipment others might want to stack up in their stations. I easily get confused by too many buttons... :)



Working shortwave from a mobile has always been interesting to me, but depending on the value of a car I always considered wisely what I would do to it - or not...

Since I now own an old offroader as a "hobby platform", I went a bit further. Starting with an 1.3 m mobile whip on the top of the car I now ended up drilling holes and brought up a Hustler mobile whip (MO1 with RM20, 40 and 80 Resonators) on the back of the car with a big 3/8" mount and a solid spring, sitting on the spare-wheel holder, which gives a rock-solid mounting point.

On 80m the total height is now 3,85m, bringing me close to the legal driveable limit of 4,00m.

The hustler, driven by a IC-7100 and just 100w brings outstanding results on 20,40 and even on 80m.


Greetings from my QTH - the Neanderthal Valley

The Neandertal is a small valley of the river Düssel in the German Federal State of North Rhine-Westphalia, located about 12 km (7.5 mi) east of Düsseldorf, the capital city of North Rhine-Westphalia. The valley belongs to the area of the towns Erkrath and Mettmann. In 1856, the area became famous for the discovery of Neanderthal 1, the first specimen of Homo neanderthalensis to be found.

The Neandertal was originally a limestone canyon widely known for its rugged scenery, waterfalls and caves. However, industrial mining during the 19th and 20th centuries removed almost all of the limestone and dramatically changed the shape of the valley. It was during such a mining operation that the bones of the original Neanderthal man were found in a cave. Neither the cave nor the cliff in which it was located exists anymore.

During the 19th century the valley was called Neandershöhle (Neander's Hollow), and after 1850 Neanderthal (Neander Valley). It was named after Joachim Neander, a 17th-century German priest. Neander is the Greek translation of his family name Neumann Â? both names meaning "new man". He lived nearby in Düsseldorf and loved the valley for giving him the inspiration for his compositions. Former names of the gorge were Das Gesteins (The Rockiness) and Das Hundsklipp (Cliff of dogs).

More bones were found in 1999 after investigation of the ground at the site of the cliff cave, which had been destroyed 150 years before.
