Ham Member Lookups: 20402




Due to my SWL time from 1973-1975 I got the smell of HamRadio in my nose - and decided to get a licence in 1975 - as it was not possible in DL to have a callsign if you are lower in age than 16. I did a course at "Schönkirchen" during Easter holidays.

1975 I got the call DB2LX until 1976 - pure UKW only.

CW was easy to learn as I was young and hungry for going to the HF Band. I started with an FT250 + GP30 for around 7 years - start RTTY with an old LO15 - T100S + HAL6000. Wonderful sound! Today RTTY is very boring as it is most a F-Key mode.

CW is my favorite (>90%) and I am a member of HSC, VHSC, SHSC, EHSC club (see http://hsc.lima-city.de/)

Contest is my passion - as member of BCC (Bavarian Contest Club) I try to do my best for the yearly "Frequent Contester" to reach the needed 5 Million points within 12 contests.

Due to QRL and bad conditions in my flat I was not active a lot of years until 2010 I went to the countryside near Berlin and have enough room for building up a nice kind of Antenna"Farm" :)

285 DXCC with only 100 Watt and 5BDXCC (in LOTW) were the result.

My club in Germany is based around Süderbrarup and own the German DOK M15 (Contest Call DL0CS)


My station

  • Kenwood TS-590S - 100W,
  • Drake L4B with about max. 750 Watt out (since 07/2016).
  • MFJ Versa Tuner III (Model 962C for 1.5kW)
  • Microham MK II

Antennas (all accessible via one coax cable with 50m length)  -  until August 2017

  • Fritzel FB53 + 18/24 WARC rotary dipol (33 feet up - Hummel Mast)
  •  fullsize vertical polarized Delta Loop for 40m (just took down for new installation)
  •  Dipol for 80/40 inv. vee (former Kelemen, FD4, G5RV - but dipole are the best)
  •  Dipol for 160m inv. vee (fullsize)
  • Rotor RC5A-3
  • Ameritron 1:8 remote Switch

Antennas within my new QTH in Porta Westfalica (since 09/2017)

    Dipole for 80/40m - more to come if the weather will be more friendly building something in my new garden.

During the last 8 Years I did around 53000 QSO´s (+ 6000 during CQWWDX in 2000-2004) - worked 285 countries - reach 5 Band DXCC and missed around 18 DXCC on 160 for 6 band DXCC.


My favorite Software:

  • N1MM+ for Contest and standard logging
  • DXlabsuite for generic logging of all QSOs
  • Hostilog from DF1LX for very effective logging of QSLs and LogBook and Realtime too. The program was written in Python language based on own requirements and I did not work with any programming language since 20years (well during my studium I used Fortran, Pascal, Basic and Assembler - in former times I wrote a packet radio SW called hostilog - but on old ATARI "PC" - :) )
    • last version was uploaded 03.January 2017 (e.g. load of 50k QSOs is now less 10 seconds, colouring of the spots, size the font of main windows via mousewheel, and and and ...)
    • Search for QSOs - how often and when the last Qso has been.
    • 30.Oct. Some changes - e.g. remove TEN-TEN and insert "NAME" as this is more needed
    • I tried to use SQlite as Database - but for 50k QSOs it is too slow to set the DB up. Forget SQlite now :)
    • DXcluster and Rigcontrol are preliminary and not the main focus - but it was fun to setup this functions. TS590 support is in development - but I have not enough time and looking for some code in Python :)
    • Hostilog is in development - I add time by time new feature or updates - I know, the kind of input of data is not really easy in the first moment - but it is really quick when you want to add QSOs from handwritten logbook or QSL Cards - which are not in digital form - my record is about 400 QSOs per hour from a very old logbook -
    • Documentation is part of the program as small window - F8 - it contain all new feature or what I want to tell about the program
    • Documentation: https://app.box.com/s/mvrmvfp9io7vy5hsjw40dz3gvptl85qe
    • Selfextracting File Downloadhttps://app.box.com/s/wtdkrmy7bwjbc57q14pwdw7vcxg3o2hl -


  • N1MM-Toolbox (former called N1MM-WAG-DXK) from DF1LX (check the QRG + alert Buddies + ...)
  • New Version: 25. December. 2016
    • Download: https://app.box.com/s/ga5fy4nn2iuy7f6ud09ugp1geyt6k5ui
    • Readme is inside - be aware, if you use Athena and/or QSorder in parallel not to use the same UDP port - every program must use another port (you can edit this in the ini-file).
    • Buddysetup is easy - as some examples are included - standard CSV files but only the first two columns are evaluated. Change of buddies is easy online.
    • Layout can be switched via F-Keys to have only the interesting areas on the screen
    • Click into the titles let you put the window as you need on the screen or second screen.
    • NEW: Timer to count the ON-, OFF- and Complete Time.
    • Timer to show the time since last QSO.
    • Timerfunction working but need more feature
    • Windowpostitions are now saved if close the program
    • New Layout and colour - On/Off couters are running fine
    • Bug: Clockwindow sometimes have problems to get it small as needed - will be fixed next time.


If you use my programs - please give me feedback if it is ok or not - :) They are written with Python3 + PyQt4.

New feature are always welcome - it is fun to add really needed feature - as it is only a kind of add-on it will help you finding people for you contact need (I use it daily to search for HSC buddies to reach a high number for the marathon HSC "contest".

Small impression of my antenna in Autumn - very crowded - :)



What is ongoing in October: Lets have a short look out of the window of our kitchen - see nothing as we are in the "Pampa" -  but this you can see now as they are collecting to fly into the south:
