Ham Member Lookups: 6258


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

 My friend Oliver ( DO8FD ) helped me a lot, so I could work with him together as DN8FD.

But hen:

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).
















A little great bluetooth speaker to amplify Kenwood´s voice:











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.

PS: I think, the project may start.A antennatuner found it`s way to me. It is in perfect condition:






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.
