Hello @all,

thanks for looking me up on my QRZ.com page. Born in 1962, I passed the novice class E license in June 2015 (at the HAM-Radio fair in Friedrichshafen,
which is only 70 minutes by car) and got my first call DO7TP. After some learning during following winter I upgraded to class A in Feb. 2016 and got my new call: DL8AZ.
So call me a quite old Rookie.wink
Located in the south-west corner of Germany nearly exactly in the middle between Stuttgart (Germany) and Zurich (Switzerland).
3 km north from the well known upper Danube-valley, 38 km east from the black forest and 30 km north from the lake of Constance, at the so called Swabian Alb.
Pictures on QSL showing castle of Hohenzollern (28 km) and upper Danube-valley (3 km) from my home.
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).
For 10m and 15m i use leightweight HB9CV 2 el. monoband- Yagis. Lifted easily to a maximum height of 9m when fixed on my portable telescopic Aluminum mast.
Also using different full-size 1/2 wave vertical wire Antennas for 10 to 20m Bands fixed on an extended fishing-pole for extremely quick setup.
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.
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.
"Aerial 51" (6-40 m OCF inverted V) by Spiderbeam on 15 m GFK pole by DX-wire.
Ultra-light and nearly invisible - no guying needed (at your own risk, hi)!!!
My new 5 Band Hexbeam by foldingantenna.com ist working great even at low height (aprox. 8 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 wire jungle).
5-band Hexbeam only 6 m up on this picture for better visibility


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