Hi and thanks for finding the way to my web-page on QRZ.com,

  • Actually (10.09.2017) I confirmed all former QSLs I received by now. So pending ones are on the way through the DARC bureau.
  • QSLs from my OH5-activities in years 2016 and 2017 are also on the way.
  • Every paper-QSL I get will be be confirmed.
  • If you miss one from recent years, please send me an email with the dates.

WEATHER REPORT live from my own weather station:  


Klick on Webcam to see 2 lifestreams or photos out of my shack ! (of course only when I´m QRV from Home QTH)

I live in the small town of GAILDORF http://www.gaildorf.de , situated about 60 km northeast of STUTTGART, which is in the South-West of Germany.
GAILDORF is well-known in  sports for its MOTOCROSS World Championship-Races
and for the Soccer U17 Youth EUROCUP http://www.jugend-eurocup.de .
The biggest
BLUESFESTIVAL in Southern Germany
http://www.bluesfest.de dates back to the year 1978 and takes place every 2nd year. 

Licenced in 1986 I ´d been very busy working through OSCAR- and RS-satellites in the 90s. After the end of AO-13 my ham activities slowed down due to increasing QRL-activities at school. Nowadays I like to work on the HF-Bands from 160 m to 6 m.

Another hobby of mine is working for the German-Finnish-Society / Deutsch-Finnische Gesellschaft e.V. (since 1977), which is the 3rd biggest friendship society in Germany.   http://www.dfg-portal.de

I´m also manager of the Educational Amateur Radio Station for Training  DN1FBG  (located in my former school).
