Ham Member Lookups: 4904


Hello, dear ham radio friends.

My name is Dirk and I live in Essen (JO31MK)
Even as a small boy I was fascinated by small shortwave radios.

I also loved bigger radios! smiley

It was incredibly exciting to hear news from the home country on holiday and also voices from distant countries.
At that time I did not know where this would lead.

When I was 15 years old, I wanted a little motorcycle, but my parents told me this was too dangerous.
So I decided to buy a CB radio station.

It was a Grundig CBH 1000 and I made my first experiences in radio traffic with strangers.

Over the years, I have also had many receivers, only one ICOM IC R1500 is still in use. I love him, it is controlled exclusively by the computer

Now I am much older and after many experiences finally reached my license in June 2017

DO1AIR was born.

Meanwhile, a shortwave transceiver Kenwood TS 480 SAT has been purchased.










A 5/8 Lambda Imax 2000, a G5VR and a Diamond X50 and a provisional long-wire (it does not work well) are connected.
Beside the phony I love PSK and JT 65
In addition, I now use D Star devices (Icom ID 5100 and Kenwood TH D74, shark rf openspot).



These are ideal for worldwide operation, as long as it is not possible to install large antennas for the short wave.
However, I am working on a solution for the 80 meter band. This will take a while.

When this is done, I will be learning for the A class to use the other frequency bands.

But now it is summer and I also like doing things in the AIR, you remember DO1AIR


I am looking forward to your visit on this site and and feel free to contact me.
