“The value of a member to the club may be measured by his support. All members have a duty to the Club by getting on the bands and on the CW end.” Bill Windle, G8VG (FOC #6)   


Hello,

Thanks for visiting my website and allowing me to tell you a little about myself and my favourite radio communication activity: CW. Perhaps you have a similar interest and background or maybe even we have spoken under one of my several callsigns. I'm Joerg Vollbrecht, a 48-year-old East German-bred, and I use the name Joe on CW, and in person for my English-speaking friends.

I live in the small town of Nebra (Unstrut) / Reinsdorf, which is located in the southern part of Saxony-Anhalt, more or less in the middle of the country, about 25 km north of Weimar and 30 km southwest of Halle (Saale). Nevertheless, Reinsdorf is not so little that it has not had amateur radio. In 1979, when I was 11 years old, I listened to my neighbour DL5WK (formerly Y21QH) making those strange dit and dah sounds as, he "talked" with friends around the world. Although it was difficult, I managed to learn Morse code by listening to tapes at about 8 wpm, starting with the easy letters and persevering despite so many other interests at that age.

My first contact was from our local training club station, Y62AH, and I was so excited that even now I remember the date and the station I worked. It was May 2, 1981, on 80 metres with Y41ZH (now DM7DX). Two years later, I received my own callsign, Y62QH, and I used both CW and SSB for several months. However, I knew Ron, DL5CL (formerly Y21UH), and Ingo, DL3HQN (formerly Y23OH), from my first radio club meetings. I started listening to their weekly high-speed QSOs on 80 metres at about 30 wpm, but really could not copy that fast. At the next club meeting, though, I mentioned my interest in trying to copy their messages. They instantly invited me to join them. Every time I checked in, they were kind enough to slow down for me. Ron gave me one of his old electronic keyers as a gift, which was the key to my CW speed increase. In only a few months, I was going fast enough to keep up with both, and not much later; I joined the Radio Telegraphy High Speed Club (HSC). By then, of course, CW became my preferred mode. I found it great fun and hugely satisfying, far more so than SSB. In January 1991, I was invited to become a member of the First Class CW Operators' Club (FOC) and even travelled to various annual meetings in the United Kingdom, United States and Europe, meeting some of the best and most experienced CW operators in the world. 

I'm Secretary as well as the authorised representative of the Radio Telegraphy Super and Extremely High Speed Club (SHSC / EHSC). In fact, for anyone who might want to learn a little more about CW and how much fun it can be, please send me an email. My email address is dl4cf@gmx.de. Learning CW is not that hard, and it is a fun skill to have and use. After a while, it becomes exactly like talking and no longer just a series of dits and dahs like those that we hear on the radio.
I'll see you on the air soon!

73, Joe
