Licensed in 1958 as HB9XJ; then active as HB9XJ/MM (1963-1966); EL0A/MM (1967); 9K2DB (Kuwait) 1971; 6W8FU (Dakar, Senegal) 1972; VK9HB (Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea) 1973; 9M8HB (Kuching, Sarawak East Malaysia) 1975; G5CEQ (Plymouth, England) 1978

Thanks to my initial interest in Amateur Radio I became a professional Telegrapher with the Swiss PTT in Zurich and Geneva in 1962. Then Radio-Operator on Merchant Ships, Fishing Vessels and a Luxury Yacht, followed by relief missions for the Redcross in Nigeria and Yemen.

I received technical and business administration training in England at the Tech. Colleges of Hull, Southampton and Plymouth, specializing in Radar. Back to work, I ran fishing bases in Kuwait, Port Moresby/Papua New Guinea and East Malaysia.

After 15 years abroad I worked worldwide as salesman for a Swiss manufacturer of Radio- and Encryption equipment for the next 12 years and until retirement in the computer industry for the last 3 years.

Now, enjoying Amateur Radio as ever, also with the Radio Club Zurich, HB9Z at contests, and having more time for the XYL !

My equipment: Shortwave 160-10m: ICOM IC-735 transceivers with Drake L4B and L7 Power-Amplifiers; VHF 2m: IC-910 transceiver with Henry 2002A Power-Amplifier; 6m: Kenwood TS-2000 Transceiver; UHF 70cm: Yaesu (Sommerkamp) SK-767 transceiver with Fischer F702 Power-Amplifier.

Antennas Shortwave: 3el SteppIR Beam 20-6m, 2 Dipoles each 2x18m long 600 Ohm ladder-line fed with remote controlled antenna couplers; 50MHz: 6 m Vertical; 2m: 10el Horiz. & Vertical Beams, Horiz. & Vertical Dipoles; 70cm: 23el Horiz. & Vertical Beams, Horiz. & Vertical Dipoles. General purpose: 40m long end-fed longwire and 15el LogPer 50Mhz to 2Ghz

Testing new antennas is always fascinating. I am in action tuning the reflectors of a 14-21-28 MHz cubical Quad. I had above 2 seperate Quads one having horizontal the other vertical polarization. I replaced them later in favour of a 3el 7-50 MHz SteppIR beam. Of course, a Quad is still the finest Antenna; great performance with low angle of radiation also at only low antenna height above ground and quiet- , low noise reception ...

To change the polarization of the 50 MHz Beam smoothly over 180 degrees from Horizontal- left to Vertical and to Horizontal- right, I fitted a rotor

Testing antennas on ground level was easier than on the roof at my QTH

 

 

At the weekend house with a flat roof there were no 2m/70cm Satellite or EME antenna installation problems !

 

600 Ohm ladder-line feed to a 2x18m long invisibly thin-wire Dipole with remote controlled antenna coupler

and Shortwave beam usually 15m high but mast can be brought to a height of 25m, but that is visible !
