DLØZZF/am on Board the Zeppelin NT

On the third weekend in June each year, Friedrichshafen on Lake Constance hosts Europe’s largest amateur radio exhibition, the HAM RADIO. It was in 2009 that its 17,400 visitors experienced a premiere. For the first time in the history of ham radio as well as in aviation, there was an aeronautical mobile operation taking place from a Zeppelin. The Zeppelin NT is based in Friedrichshafen, just across the road of the exhibition premises. Five flights had to be cancelled due to bad weather with thunderstorms and hail, but on early Sunday morning the airship lifted off with 11 passengers on board. One of them was the trustee of the airship’s club station, Hans Schwarz, DK5JI. He managed to work 92 stations during this 20 minutes flight using the airship’s call sign DLØZZF/am. QSO’s were conducted on 145.550 MHz in FM. Other activities followed in subsequent years. There are plans to expand ham radio activities covering hf and vhf communication.
