First licence in 1983, mainly activ on 2m and 70cm.
Due to my qrl I had to move several times:
Antennas with vertical Rotor and qrv in WSJT eme and ms since 21st April 2006.
At 1st August 2007 I dismantled my station in JO30MP because I will move from here in a couple of weeks. Thank you for 105 initials in eme and a lot of fun!
I hope to be back on 144MHz in spring time 2008 from the other side of the pileup :-)) Keep the fingers crossed!
10.01.2008 HNY YES !!!!!! I moved to Tashkent/Uzbekistan MN41OG and got a licence!! My new call is UK/DL9LBH. I hope to get limited operation capability in spring 2008, hope to meet you on 2m EME and maybe on 70cm also.
I am waiting for neccessary equipment, awaiting a truck end of May.
24.06.2008: Tower is erected and antennas (2x11el for 2m and 2x23el for 70cm) mounted, still need to get the cables into the shack, awaiting first trial operation next weekend!!
28.06.2008 First 2m + 70cm eme with HB9Q. My stn: TS-2000, BEKO HLV-750 PA, 2x11el Flexa Yagi, preamb by ssb-electronic. For 70cm 2x23el with preamp but only 50w. Since January 2009 qrv on 70cm with 2x23el Flexa Yagi, LNA 435 MK II and BEKO HLV-550.
I will stay here until summer 2010 !!
My main qrg is 144.122 LBH 1st or 085 when JA has moon window.
My activity here is limited due to qrl, sri, and sometimes I am missing internet or electricity. So if you hear me calling cq, pse announce it in the chat if I did not myself.
23rd August 2010 I dismantled my station and 20th September 2010 we moved to Astana / Kazakhstan, where I am lucky to represent Kazakhstan on radio with the call UN/DL9LBH. But I will have to wait until May until I can built up antennas.
21.05.2011 I am back on air from Astana/Kazakhstan/MO51QD with 4x11el/600 on 2m and soon also on 70cm
20.11.2011 On 70cm I am qrv now with 4x23/500 but I can not use my Preamp because then I get some band intruders with wide FM signals.
Sorry, end of September 2012 I had turn down my station because I had to move back to Germany on christmas thanks to my loved boss.
My new qth in Germany is located in a valley with real bad VHF-Conditions. I build up a 11el for 2m and a 23el for 70cm but only made some qso.
21.03.2015 I am preparing my move to south Germany end of June this year. Building up antennas will start in 2016.
1st June 2016 I am retired! Time for hobby, so I immediately started to prepare a application to build up a tower.
28.07.2016 first qso from Muhr ! Time without HF has ended. Only a FD4 windom antenne, ends still on the ground, but a start has been made!
14th September 2016 a Big Wheel antenna for 2m, a omnidirectional antenne with horizontal polarization, 7m above ground. So at least I can start a little bit with activities at my favorite band. Already worked two stations over a distance of more than 400 km. Not bad for a Big Wheel. Station for 2m: Flex-5000A + Beko HLV-750 + Big Wheel (with maximum 400w). For shortwave a TS-2000. But my attempt to put the Big Wheel antenna on the roof failed. After standing one meter on the roof, I decided that I am too old to climb on a roof with 45 degree angle. :-(
30th October 2016 FD4 is down and I pulled up a loop antenna with 87m wire at 4 pools around the house. This loop antenna is working very well :-)
4th November 2016 I got my Big Wheel for 2m on the roof, so now it is 10m above ground and worked well in the VHF Marconi-Contest. And for shortwave now a pa with 400w.
Still only having my Big Wheel antenna for 2m but with growing dx virus at Dec 14th 2016 I tried MS. Received a cq of LZ2FO/2, answered and finally achieved a qso ! With my Big Wheel only!
So after this success my dx virus grew even faster and I tried what else is possible. Of course I as well as the other stations needed a lot of patience but so I had some more ms qso:
21.12.2016 G4CDN JO02SS 759km
01.01.2017 GW4BVE IO82KQ 1047km
03.01.2017 LY2WR KO24FO 1119km
05.01.2017 YU1EV KN04CN 885km
Not bad for a single Big Wheel antenna isnt it :-)
TS-2000X, Transistor PA with 400w, 87m wire as loop antenna 9m high
Flex-5000A, PA BEKO HLV-1000 (max use of 500w because of antenna), Big Wheel antenna at the roof 10m above ground, preamp MV144S01 from ssb Electronic
TS-2000X, PA TLA 1270-100B (70w), 25el Flexa-Yagi (out of 48el) 2m above ground looking north, LNA MVV1296-VOX
