Born in 1953
At the age of about 12 years I started building small AM-receivers in tube-technologie for LW-, MW- and SW-frequencies. Later on I tried it with Ge-transistors. Some of my projects I built up with great success and more than one night I spent my time listening to far radio-stations. My parents I think were not amused ...
Some years later I found out girls to be nice objects of interest - listening to them now was more interesting than to radio-stations. But deep inside I never lost my curiosity about electronics and radio-technics.
Thus I studied telecommunications engineering and graduated as an engineer in 1977. The same year my first son was born ...
Soon I got a job at the german telecommunication-office: developing circuits for a mobile-radio switching station was my first function. 12 years later I started my career in writing database-software.
Now I'm retired since 2011 and living in a lovely little town in Bavaria, the south-east region of Germany.
HAM since 1979
Until 1987 I was QRV only on 2m-band SSB and FM. Then I started to work on 70cm-band with an old IC-4E handheld-transceiver. But the main interrest still was 2m.
Meanwhile I bought a TS-711 transceiver for 2m-band and in 2006 I got this small magic QRP-transceiver FT-817. And I found out shortwave makes fun ...

In 2016 I founded the Amateur Radio Clubstation End Polio Now with a special callsign DL0POLIO after Frank, 5P2BA, has done the same in Denmark: OU0POLIO. For myself I was infected by Polio in the year 1955.
End Polio Now is a project started by World Health Organisation together with Rotary International. For more information please look at DL0POLIO
