Thanks for visiting my page!

Born in 1969 I have been very early fascinated by my grandmother´s Phillips tube-radio. I remember sitting for a long time in front of it, watching the EM34 Magic Eye and asked myself, what is the miracle behind the voice beeing spoken in the studio can be heard here in the living room.....

Years later I started to read books in the public library like Werner W. Diefenbachs " Radiotechnik für Jungen" and decided to start with one of the described homebrew-projects. This was about the age of 12 years.

While trying to get the needed battery-tubes I  met for the first Uli Fleischmann, DL9LX, who became a mentor to me, and later on a very good friend. He brought me into the amateur-radio life, flewmarkets, homebrew projects, and helped me to achive the goal to get my first "C-Class" Callsign DD0IC in 1985. I stressed my parents with a 9 Ele yagi for 144MHz on the balcony in front of the living room and worked during these times also a lot via RS-Satellites 144MHz up / 28 MHz downlink.

A few years later I started to practice CW with him, in these times a requirement to upgrade the licene class.

In 1988 I passed the upgrade exam and finally got the DL5UZ callsign!

Followed by years of  acitivity with mulitband verticale on top of the 12th floor of the apartment house where my parents had been living. 

After leaving my parents home for my own flat I had been QRT for abt. 20 years - no antennas had been allowed at all.

2017 we moved from the flat in the city to a house in  rural area with a very nice, friendly and understanding neihborhood.

The first thing was installing a hygain AV640 on top of the garage, and later an Optibeam 11-5 on of of a "Flammex-Pull" expandable tower. This is up to now the antenna coniguration.

To get this work done, my special thanks to:

- Tom, DF2BO who designed and manufactured this masterpice of antenna. He has always been reachable for any questions.

- Wolfgang Frick, Flammex Pull, delivered the tower himself and had been on the roof with us installing

- Gilbert, DL6CD, has been allways here when ever his knowledge or hands has been needed. A great OM!

- and a lot more friendly helpers - thanks!!
