Neuer DOK ab 27.06.2017: B21 (alter DOK U03)

Assisting at the radio flea market in Tettau. See you in Tettau next year.
Helfer beim Funkflohmarkt in Tettau. Bis zum nächsten Jahr in Tettau.


In July 2014 I started working as SOTA DM Association Manager.

Main interests: Portable operation from mountains and castles and APRS.

In the end of April 2010 I have upgraded my license class and my callsign changed from DO7MM to DB7MM.


DB7MM Activation of DM/TH-013

SOTA and GMA are two of my special interests.

This picture shows my last activation of DM/TH-013 Großer Hermannsberg.

For my SOTA/GMA activations I use two different transceivers:

  • Yaesu FT-817 @ 5W with speech compressor from Funkamateur
  • Elecraft KX 3 @ 10 W

Both are powered by a 4.2 Ah 4S LiFePO4 battery pack.

For shortwave I use a quarterwave vertical for 40m (9.8 m physical length) with four radials which is also resonant on 15m. For 10/20m I use the "Fuchskreis" from QRP Project.

2m FM & APRS: Kenwood TH-D72 with 5/8-lambda telescopic antenna.

Kronach QTH of DB7MM

My home QTH is located in the town Kronach, about 90 km north of Nuremberg.

Look for the red circle around the house I am living in.

My current shack in Kronach

This is my current shack in Kronach.

Icom IC756 PROII for shortwave with antennas:

  • horizontal delta loop of 82 m, removed due to requirement of a neighbour on 21.11.2015
  • W3DZZ

Yaesu FT-8900 for 2 m and 70 cm FM, most of the time tuned to 145.700 MHz DB0UC (Echolink 96450) or 438.825 MHz DB0REN (Echolink 579989) and 438.725 MHz DB0KCH.

IC-211E for 2 m SSB, only used from time to time due to the unfortunate location in the Kronach valley.

Winter imperession from the Winter-BBT 2012 on the Kieferle near Steinheid in Thuringia.

My Mercedes 280 GE built in 1987 serves me as shack in the frosty (-17°C at beginning of activity) heights of the Thuringian forrest. Until noon the warming sun beams result in more comfortable temperatures.

That's my car inside. The FT-817 and the Li Polymer battery used for the Winter-BBT are lying on the dashboard.

The Yaesu FT-8900 is the regular radio in my car. An additional Ascom SE-540 and the Garmin GPSMap162 are used for APRS.

Winter BBT 2013

Same mountain, same amateur radio gear, new car.

End of 2012 I purchased a new car which had its first test as mobile shack during the Winter BBT in February 2013. Less snow than in 2012 enabled me to drive completely up the mountain.

Of course I again installed a VHF/UHF-transceiver for mobile activity. This time a Kenwood TM-D710 with integrated APRS.

Inside again my Yaesu FT-817 powered by a 4 Ah LiPo-battery (not visible)
