Some Calls that I used in the past:
DL0RO, DB0OJ (callsigns of my old local club) until 1999
HB0/DL0GK (in 1993)
HB0/DL1EMH (in 1993)
DL0GL (from time to time, since 2000)
DL0GEO (from time to time since 2000)
ZK2GEO (in 1999)
CT3L, CT9L, CQ3L (in some contests between 2006 and 2011)
CT3/DL1EMH (only 2006 and 2007)
CT9/DL1XW (from 2008 to 2011)
ED8A, EA8URL (in 2007)
PA/DL1XW (from time to timebetween 2002 and 2012 when I was on vacancy in northern PA with my wife [rip])
TK4A (in 2012),DM1EE in 2013.
I also joined numerous contests mainly in the 90´s with my old calls DL1EMH and DH4JZ.
In 2014, 2015and 2016 I have been member of the DD0CC Team for WPX contest in CW mode, and in other contests member of the DL0GL team, which is the main club station of our radio club.
my DOK is L03
My old personal callsigns were: 1983-1990: DC5JP, 1990-1993: DH4JZ, 1993-2007: DL1EMH
I´m also holding a SWL call: DE2HPL, and an educational call: DN2MH
I have been operating from 40 to 10 m, with a GAP Titan DX. It is working more or less acceptable, but it is not
the one I will use for longer time. In fact it is not even as competitable as my quarter wave vertical for 40m that I used before.
I have rebuildt my AP8A, which I was using in the 80`s and 90`s, and as soon as weather conditions allowed, I took down the GAP and installed the AP8A with a brandnew radial system. Well, no success at all, it didn`t work at all, and I could not find my fault.
So I decided to go a completely different way: I bought a 6BTV from Hustler, and this antenna performs really good at my station. I have already worked some new bandpoints with it, and as soon as I have enough radials installed and connected, the performance will increase, especially on the lower bands from 30m to 80m.
My plans for the higher frequencies will slow down a little due to the shortwave, and also I have to look out for new antennas for VHF and UHF. As soon as I will be QRV there again I will post it here. But it can take some time. Money does not come to me saying "hello here I am"... hihi.
After this I will try to operate contests also from my home qth, but it will not be easy because of the noise floor which is very high and which is steadily increasing. I will inform about my activities early.
One important thing before I come to an end:
I am observing lots of stations trying to "break the pile up", meaning they are calling continuosly though the DX station has already called someone else. Well, Gentlemen, please be fair and patient! Read the "Code of Conduct" for DXing and think about what you are doing! There are lots of stations with less power or small antennas who also want to work DX. As I know from my own experience they will be more than happy when the DX can copy them and they can finally finish the QSO.
So please be friendly!
Now have fun on the bands! 73´s and DX de Hape DL1XW
