Ham Member Lookups: 16040


17 years old, I started my ham "career" together with my father (DL8US) in 1965 in Bad Kissingen, Northern Bavaria. Due to restricted resources we concentrated first on 2m homemade equipment with AM and fixed quartz-frequencies on the transmit side. From the beginning I have been fascinated by this band (and still I am): contests, tropo propagation, Es, MS, aurora ....

Later on I moved to Munich, first for studying, and then for remaining and I settled down here in JN58sc, in the southern part of Munich-City.

From 1990 to 2015 my working conditions on 2m consisted of an IC740, a LT2S-Transverter and a homemade Mosfet-PA with the I0JXX 350W-module. My ant was 4 x 7 element, 15m above ground, 555m a.s.l. The elevation rotor was out of order, so I had a fixed elevation of 6°. I was active also on WSJT, mainly FSK441, but I succeeded in some JT65b EME-QSOs, as well.

On Dec 16th, 2009 I started my activities on 70cm, again with my IC740 and a homemade transverter, built by DJ6XH. Rig here: 40 W - Ant 16 element (14.4 dBd).

I'm QRV also in portable mode on 2m, using 30-40W output and the homemade ("ultra-light") 4xHB9CV-antennas, vertically stacked and tested during my holidays on the island of Sylt (JO44dv), in South-France (JN12mr), in Poland (JO74lb), in Liguria (JN44xb) and Croatia (JN74jo) with good results.

On March 31th, 2015 hurricane "Niklas" tilted down my antenna mast, after more than 24 years of operation. The antenna system itself remained mainly undamaged.

Since Nov. 11th, 2015 I'm back on 2m, with one 7el yagi with H- and V-polarisation, a modified 7el Flexayagi (see picture, 10.2 dBd). The transceiver and the PA are the same as before the hurricane. My current plans are to repair the elevation rotor and to built up the 4 x 7el yagi group again, but with both polarisations. Also 70 cm should be activated again, but later on.
