Hello and thank you for looking at this web site and for working me as D44TZN!

This holiday expedition was a great fun and a real new experience for me. In my HAM RADIO life I have never experienced such a challenge working pile-ups.Today I know that I was quite naiv when I called CQ in CW and I did not expect that dozens of stations replied. I was shocked at the first moment and it took some minutes to refresh and to work the pile-up. I have to admit that I need some more training and experiences in working CW pile-ups and I thank you for your patience. On the other hand I could manage the SSB pile-ups quite professional. Real enjoyable and a successful WAG (Worked All Germany) contest when I provided a nice multiplier for almost 300 operators!

However, I observed that many operators do not know about the DX Code of Conduct or do not understand what it means or do not understand English instructions at all! Especially Asian stations were seriously affected by the bad behaviour of these operators.I am pretty sure that I would have worked some more stations if all operators would have followed my instructions and the DX Code of Conduct. For those of you who would like to understand what I am talking about readthe DX Code of Conduct http://dx-code.org/

My permission has been issued by ANAC (Agency of National Communication) and has been accepted by ARRL and LoTW. However, the permission is timely limited to October 2011. Please do not request QSLs for QSOs outside of this timeframe! Many thanks to my friend Xara D44TD who helped me a lot to get the permission and the accommodation.

The hotel location was close to the beach and infront of my lodge I could use a palm tree and a street lamp to pull up a center feeded doublet (2x 19m). Unfortunately this antenna was too low and useable for 80m only. At the fence of the terrace I fixed my 12m telescopic fibre glasspole (Spiderbeam)and I set-up a triple leg antenna (7m radiator and 3 x 7m radials @ 45°). All antennas were fed by 300 OhmTwin-Lead cable (DX-Wire)and matched by an automatic tuner(SG 239 Smartuner)to the 50 Ohm input of my Yaesu FT-897 (100W) Additionally I used a choke (current) balun (or 1:1ladderline balun). The triple leg antenna performed quite well and the good condx produced readable sigs all around the world!

QSL policy:

I sent all qsl cards via the German DARC buro by December 2011! This buro works quite well and you should receive your card in a reasonable time. I do not collect your card and it is not necessary that you send your card to me.I do not need them.

The log with 1040 QSOs has been uploaded to LoTW at 20th October! Are you in the log? Please check Logsearch

For those of you where neither the buro nor LoTW works you must send me an SAE (self adressed envelope) with 1 new IRC or 2 US $ to my home adress in Germany. In this case I will send a qsl card to you via mail. In case of not sufficient postage I will not reply directly.

Last but not least I thank my XYL Monika for her lovely support and the wonderful holidays!
