DLØWWF stands for "Wald-Wiesen-Funker" which means in english, we are a radio club doing activity only in nature, like "Forest-Meadow-Operators" for which we would say "Fieldday Activists".
The foto shows a weekend activity in summer 2008 testing a W8JK 2-el yagi for 20-10m, a vertical G5RV for 40-10m fixed to a 18m fibre pole and a 80-10m Windom, 41m long as well as a endfed Longwire 30m with a 1:10 Balun for 160-10m. The testing was a preparation for our H40 DX expeditions followed thereafter (see H40FK, H40FN, H40MS).
the left picture above shows a W8JK during a fieldday test, the right picture shows the same antenna in a tropical storm during our H4Ø DXpedition
DLØWWF is a ham radio community with strong activity desire and does not include hams who are hanging around and just enjoy their beer and doing bubble talks and rag chewing. Access is only open for hams who really participate with activity. It does not need to follow strict club rules but everyone has got the opportunity to design what he wants as long as it is ham radio in the field.
The club life does not need to apply for membership, since we are all free lancers and communicate before we act. So if you are personally and physically around at our fieldday area just contact us and introduce your activity you want to do. The fieldday life also includes activity outside our own living area in Germany near Frankfurt/Main. Meanwhile we have activated fields abroad like in the Hungarian Puszta (HA), on Temotu Islands (H4Ø), Liechtenstein (HBØ) or Luxembourg (LX), as well on some agriculture land of our activists.
There is no President, no Cashier, no QSL-Manager. Everyone is his own president and follows the rules of ham spirit and fairness. Everyone pays his own expenses and shall provide his own equipment. At the moment we are preparing our website including some fotos. More information to follow.
