QSL: I prefer paper cards, buro is ok.
LOTW and eQSL will be done automatically every QSO.

Direct QSL maybe faster, please include at least 1 US$ and SAE, with the dollar rate per 2017-03-17.
(German mail company needs 0.90€ or 0.95US$ for an 20g overseas letter, 2017-03-07)

Pse NO IRCs anymore, always trouble at the office.
Cards with IRC will be answered via buro.

The picture in the headline is my QSL-card, pictures are from 2002, still some cards in stock.


First licensed in 1979 and spent the 80ies with Meteorscatter on 2m, also TR/AU and other modes of course.
Those days were 2h skeds/5min periods with skeds arranged per letter (or 20m) normal, HSCW 600lpm and more.

In the 90ies I made some 70cm (also EME), and less 23cm.
Late 90ies 2m square MS activities from EA and F.
1996 I got my 6m licence, that years we needed a special permit, it was not free to everyone in  DL.

But all the years had a lot of breaks due to work, health and QTH reasons.

2011 I got a TIA, but most went back ok in the following 1.5 years.
Now I am partially retired.


20170307, upate 60m:

Some noise was homemade, found a faulty PS which gave >10dB extra noise.
RX a lot better now.


20170120, update 60m:

made a fast temporary gamma-match on the background tower, so I am using
a toploaded 16m high vertical with a good radial net (described below).

Important: I have no RX antenna up this season, and struggling
sometimes with high neighbours noise, maybe PLC!

At JT65A, 5357, it looks sometimes like this:

20160819, update 6m:
Neighbours electronic trash was sometimes more than 20dB on 6m!
So I made some changings, especially that elevation update gives me lot of dB
less with elevation above 15°.

-  2dB more gain: installed an home brewed own designed (NEC) 8el. Yagi,
which consists of M² 6M7 parts. That is an improvement of nearly 1dB.
Another dB comes from changing some coax to 7/8" LCF, and the rotor loop now
is 1/2" HCF.

- Additional rx gain will probably also be there, the LNA is now on top of the tower,
before it was at bottom.

- Most connectors are 7/16 now, only the coax-relay and the dipole are still N.

- Added elevation controll, and replaced old DAIWA MR750.
Now running AlfaSpid RAK and REAL, both are very fine
controllabe by YO3DMUs great "PstRotator" Software.

- Installed a 3rd Vagarda 3m segment at the moveable part.
Together with a 1.5m longer mast at the turning section that gives me abt 5m more height,
for antenna getting up to 20m agl at maximum.
Right now it is at 15m level, need to install some guylines for the next 5m step.

Pictures will coming soon.


These days I am mainly active on 6m/80m/160m DX. On lowbands CW only.

Spent the last years often on lowbands, with some PWR and rx with 6 beverages, between 100m and 250m long.
Each switchable uni-/bidirectional, every 30° a lobe.
Since 2013 I am using an HiZ4-8 array, performing much better, no need anymore for my short bevs.
Its running very well with 80m distance to my vertical.

6m had a lot of breaks between 2008 and 2014 due to antenna faults and other reasons.

I changed my backyard setup in late summer 2014, and put one of my two 7el M² 6m yagis on that
tower, formerly used as a vertical 27m high for 160m and as the center part of a 
Spitfire for 80m (a kind of a 4sq).
Down that tower there are 120 radials buried, each 15 to 25m long.

I am using this tower with the 6m yagi now also as a vertical for 80/160, feed by a gamma match.

For playing around there is another 16m tower with a Spider 5HD @ 16m.
A third tower with easy access for tuning etc. 6m high, for lightweight ants are 10m agl no prob.

The picture below shows left the backyard tower, 0.7m x 0.7m, 12m high, carrying 6m of
Vargada tower (side 0.4m) and one 6M7 yagi 7el M² with 8m boom @ 16m agl.
Service is easy with electric winch, and the Vargada section is tiltable to ground level.
To the right there are some of the 8 lowband rxing verticals visible.
Each 7m long fishing pole with CU-wire, diameter of the 8-circle something around 33m.

Direction of the left photo is ~north, the right one is around 50°.
QTH is JO53hh17ul, visible here   http://no.nonsense.ee/qth/map.html?qth=JO53HH17UL&t=s
