Born in 1967 I got interested in ham radio in 1981. After a few (necessary by GDR-regulations) years of active SWLing I got my first licence in 1984 as Y37RA.
In 1987 I had to change my callsign to Y42DA due to a move to a different location. In 1992 once again my callsign was changed to DL6KVA due to the reunion of Germany.
I quickly found out that I like CW much more than SSB and became a 99,9% CW-OP.
Operations from abroad included:
2005 RK6YYA/4/m - RDA team expedition to Volgograd region (UA4A)
2006 RK6YYA/0/m - RDA team expedition to Russia Far East (UA0U,UA0J,UA0D,UA0C,UA0L)
2006 RK6YYA/4/m - RDA team expedition to Mordovia (UA4U)
2007 RK6YYA/0/m - RDA team expedition to Yakutia (UA0Q)
2008 RK6YYA/0/m - RDA team expeditions to Dagestan (UA6W), Rostov (UA6L), Kalmykia (UA6I), Stavropol (UA6H)

Some photo albums from my expeditions and other trips can be found at
I'm QSL-manager for my own activities (DL6KVA, 3D2KV, 4K0CW, T30KV, T33KV, VP8KVA and older calls) and those of Vlad, 4K9W (ex UD6DKW). QSLing 100% via DL-buerau ( "via DL6KVA" must be clearly written/printed on the card as there is no 4K-bureau for many years). QSLs can be sent direct, too.
Currently for a direct reply (max to 20g per letter) 1 current valid IRC or 2 USD would be enough.
my DOK: V01
