Hello @all,

thanks for looking me up on my small QRZ.com page. Born in 1962, I passed the novice class E license in June 2015 (on the HAM-Radio fair in Friedrichshafen, which is only 70 minutes by car) and got my first call DO7TP. So I´m quite old but still a Rookie.wink
Update: Was learning during the next winter and upgraded my license to class A on Feb. 23. 2016. Now on air with my new call:   DL8AZ.
I prefer portable operation with my Kenwood TS-480HX (200 W) or ICOM IC-7300 (100 W) and HLA-300V-Plus Amp.(max. 300W PEP). Main Antenna is a HB9CV Monoband- 2 el. Yagi for 15m (but also working so-so on other bands with Tuner). This lightweight Antenna is fixed on a telescopic Aluminum mast and can be lifted easily to a maximum height of 9m. Also using different full-size 1/2 wave vertical wire Antennas for 10 to 20m Bands fixed on a extended fishing-pole for extremely quick setup.
 
Allways experimenting with lightweight portable Antennas.
 
So using the "Aerial 51" (6 Band OCF inverted V) by Spiderbeam on 10 m and 15 m GFK poles by DX-wire with good results.
 
My new 5 Band Hexbeam by foldingantenna.com ist working great even at low hight (tested 7 m above ground) but not intended to be used for a quick 2 hours portable on air session, as it takes some time to setup and setdown the antenna (20 minutes each when you are allready familiar with the Antenna).
 
My favourite DX location for portable operation is just 5 minutes by car from my home on a hill 860 m (2800 feet) asl without any manmade noise.

Hope to meet you soon on the bands. 73 de Rolf


My small holiday DX-peditions:
